Haber’s Lavender Citrus Tonic,
lemon, vanilla, agave, soda, mint
Think the classic gin and
tonic meets a lavender soda.
The crushed ice gives it a cocktail
feel and its light refreshing
blend is perfect for summer.
You’ll be so enamoured with
this beauty that you may forget
to order food (hint: mac ‘n’
cheese is always a good idea).
Grapefruit, lime, honey, salt
This virgin daiquiri is tart
and citrusy, with honey
adding a subtle sweetness.
Aesthetically, it’s a headturner,
served up in a Nick
and Nora coupe with a lime
Sip over good conversation,
laughs and people
FOOD + DRINKS
Non-alcoholic cocktails have skyrocketed in popularity and variety. With more people
opting for beverages that taste and look great but don’t contain alcohol, bartenders
have taken to crafting beautiful and eclectic mocktails that please both the eye and the
palate. Whether you ditched the booze for health reasons, are in recovery, or your body
simply can’t handle the two-day hangover anymore — people over 30, I’m talking to you
— gone are the days of ordering plain sodas. These days, there are alcohol-free options
like never before, with fancy names, alluring colors and eye-catching garnishes.
As NYC begins socializing again, check out these bars and restaurants if you’re looking
for a zero-proof drink to sip during brunch or a night out.
