A previous article described and went over the current mocktail trend. Even though cocktails without alcohol have existed for descennia, we’re currently speaking about a true ‘mocktail revolution’. In the former article the developments of balancing the flavour by adding tinctures and bitter elements and the increasing variety of mocktails amongst trendy bars has been discussed, but currently we’re noticing a new mocktail developments: the increase of ready to go mocktails.
By ready to go mocktails we mean mocktails available in shops and supermarkets, in bottles and cans. There are several alternatives of different brands appearing on the market.
Below, some of these alternatives are listed to draw an example of the arasing varieties of bottled/ canned mocktails.
Mr. Fitzpatrick offers 330 ml bottles, available in 6 different flavours. Just like the brand itself, the drinks are all very vintage, equiped with a vintage design and typical oldskool womens’ names.
• Ellie : Elderflower Shampagne
• Lola : Passion Fruit Bellini
• Ruby : Rhubarb Mimosa
• Gracie : Berry Bonanza
• Annie : Strawberry Daiquiri
• Jessie : Apple Pomtini
Another brand offering bottled mocktails is completely aimed at mocktails like its name suggests, namely; Mocktails Brands. Its productline excists of low sugar and calorie mocktails. Its tasted are inspired by classic cocktails and they come in the following four flavours:
• Karma Sucra Cosmopolitan
• The Vida Loca Margarita
• Sevilla Red Sangria
• Scottish Lemonade Whiskey Sour
The last variant we’d like to highlight is Ocean Spray Mocktails. These bottled juices can either be drunk straight from the bottle, or be mixed with sparkling water, to create a mocktail. It even gives the opportunity to mix it with liquor or wine, when one would be more into a cocktail instead of a mocktail once in a while.
