View as Map

Sure, some folks forgo booze in January after an indulgent New Year’s, but non-alcoholic cocktails have quickly become a popular option at bars for folks trying to cut back, designated driving, or maintaining sobriety. There’s even a trend toward nonalcoholic bars. No longer just Shirley Temples, a mocktail is a great way to add a bit of sparkle to a meal without compromising flavor.

These special non-alcoholic beverages — many of which are developed by award-winning bartenders in the Phoenix area — are so good, you might not ever go back to drinking.

Garden Bar Phx

This newcomer to the Phoenix bar scene earned instant street cred with James Beard-honored mixologist Kim Haasarud behind the bar. The menu offers a few mocktails that are just as impressive as boozy, including a Nopresso Martini, a non-alcoholic take on the trendy espresso martini. It’s made with cold brew coffee and house made ‘nomaro’ — a nonalcoholic version of amaro liqueur — sweetened with demerara sugar.

Little Rituals

This can’t-miss cocktail bar led by Bitter & Twisted co-owner Ross Simon and talented bartender Aaron Defeo is a must-try even if you’re skipping the booze.

The Dr. Cottley’s Expiremental “Gin No. 7” is prepared with non-alcoholic gin, non-alcoholic rhubarb amaro, peach, acacia honey, pineapple juice, lime, and lemon.

CRUjiente Tacos
