What are the Best Alcohol Alternatives?

Let’s get something straight – tequila shots aren’t for everyone.

Let’s get something straight – tequila shots aren’t for everyone.

Seriously though, keeping up with the weekend booze benders starts to get old. However, there’s got to be something better than the Shirley Temple alternative. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to walk around a bar with Sprite and cherry juice. 

Luckily, there are actually a few healthy and delicious alternatives out there. Plus, you’ll still get that TGIF feeling like everyone else. That’s why non-alcoholic social drinks are the future!

So what are the best ones? Let’s break it down!

Social Tonics

Social Tonics are that same bubbly goodness you’d expect from a refreshing drink but instead of alcohol percentages, these are infused with CBD which may reduce stress levels. Due to the naturally derived nature of hemp, most of these drinks are naturally sweetened and mixed with all-natural ingredients.

Even better – a social tonic is easy to control! This is one of the most significant downsides of alcohol! We’ve all realized we had a little too much a little too late. Luckily, social tonics start to work after about 15 minutes! That means you’ll know when you’ve had the right amount.

If you thought that was great, wait until you hear about the hangover. Oh yea. There isn’t one…

This is one of the biggest reasons why so many people are giving social tonics a try. Hemp extracts don’t have any next-morning downsides. That means you don’t even have to wait until the weekend to partake in the goodness. We can’t think of anything better than that.

The Mocktail

Most people probably already have a bad taste in their mouths when thinking about this one. That’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about drinks that were MADE to be a mocktail!

Most mixed drinks are created with a spirit in mind so the ingredients are crafted around it – making them really important to the taste. Here are the easiest steps to fix it:

  1. Ask the bartender! Most people are afraid to do it but… they’re the expert. Asking them if they have a mocktail that will actually taste good will work wonders!
  2. Do a little research ahead of time! Sometimes finding a great mocktail is as simple as a quick Google search. Then you’ll know what to ask for and skip an awkward conversation! 😉

What now?

There are some cool alcohol alternatives in town – you just have to look a little bit. It’s time to lose the fake sh*t and start living right. Let’s start skipping the Sunday hangover together.
