Happy Every Hour

I know I mix a mean mocktail and I’m learning more every day.

HAPPY EVERY HOUR will keep you up to date on the latest and greatest trends in the world of mocktails and zero-proof beverages. TRIGGER WARNING: People in early sobriety may want to proceed with caution. Please hydrate responsibly … because drunk never looks good.

Sip Sip Soirée

Soirée believes in the power of unity and celebration, and they stand by the conviction that your choice of drink should never be a reason for exclusion. They recognize that non-drinkers have often been relegated to dull, unhealthy, or uninspiring drink options at parties. Soirée will liberate you from the monotony of iced tea and other lackluster beverages. Can I get an ‘Amen’?!?!

Dry Botancial Bubbly

DRY Botanical Bubbly is the sophisticated, refreshing zero-proof alternative for every celebration.

The DRY Lavender Botanical Bubbly strikes the right balance between dry and refreshing with a delicate, floral profile.

Toast: It is intended to be enjoyed on its own, like a glass of sparkling wine. Serve it chilled in a coupe.

Pair: Designed with the help of top chefs to pair with specific cuisines to elevate the meal.

Mix: Made from real ingredients and focused on amplifying flavor, not sweetness, DRY Botanical Bubbly is the go-to mixer for any zero-proof cocktail.

Curious Elixirs

0% Alcohol. 100% Delicious. Curious Elixirs are booze-free craft cocktails for everyone. Handcrafted in the Hudson River Valley, they use only the best ingredients and nothing artificial. Their cocktails combine ONLY organic juices, spices, herbs, roots, barks, and botanicals.

Plus, let’s be honest. They had us at their tagline “Shaken Not Slurred”. These alcohol-free cocktails are crafted for complexity. Brewed without booze for maximum flavor. Lightly carbonated to make your mouth dance. Each flavor is a collaboration between their team of world-class bartenders, herbalists, and food scientists.

Our current favs are Curious No. 2 and Curious No. 4 (which is in limited release) But you don’t have to take our word for it, try one of each! With their subscription club, this makes a great gift that will keep on giving with each monthly delivery.

Gruvi

Ready to get your Grüvi on with these Non Alcoholic Dry Secco and Bubbly Rosé bevies? I took one for the sober team and sampled them for you. The result? I am all about their bubbles!

Gruvi strives to create an inclusive community focused on making better choices within our daily lives. They truly believe in a world where we don’t always feel inclined to drink in a social setting, and a world where everyone can feel comfortable, regardless of what’s in their cup. I’ll cheers to that! It drives me nuts when people don’t invite me to things because “I don’t drink”. I’m sober not boring people and I’m a not a house plant. Guess what world? Sober people DO still consume liquids! GASP!

The Grüvi mission is simple. Help others be healthy and stay social, one drink at a time. They sought out to create a line of craft, non-alcoholic beers and wine because you deserve it. Your health is your wealth, and the beverage you consume shouldn’t compromise that. Can’t we get a bubbly amen?
