An ever-growing number of consumers are seeking spirit-free options at the bar, and their reasons for skipping the spike are just as numerous.

From health-conscious consumers looking to stay on track, social media savvy patrons contributing to the latest “dry challenge,” expecting mothers-to-be, or teetotalers looking to enjoy the party without becoming the party, one thing these folks all have in common is the desire for a cocktail prepared with the same level of craft and creativity as the rest of your menu.

Drinking is often a communal experience – a celebration, a toast, a bonding moment. A syrupy “mocktail” or watered-down “virgin” version of existing menu items can leave customers feeling excluded or called out, and they deserve better options.

We turned to our Breakthru IL Beverage Specialist Adam Halyckyj for three recipes that will elevate the spirit-free section of your menu.
