Skip the booze this summer with these refreshing non-alcoholic summer drinks. Great for serving up at BBQs or alongside summer picnics.
If you’re looking for effortless summer drinks then these are perfect for keeping chilled in the fridge ready to grab.
You just can’t go wrong with Sanpellegrino, our favourites are the cans of sparkling blood orange and the little bottles of sparkling limonata. Perfect for summer afternoons in the garden or serving at BBQs. These are great for picnics too and taste unbelievably good.
Now I’ve tried alcohol free wine before and found it dreadful! This however pleasantly surprised me! As a wine LOVER I wanted an alcohol free alternative that still felt special, that tasted good and that filled the ‘wine o’clock’ slot! Botonique is an alcohol free botanical drink designed to do just that. Botonique has a very herbal taste and scent, it’s dry to drink, refreshing and just lovely! The drink is enriched with vitamins, minerals and amino acids making it a genuinely healthy, good for you alternative to wine.
Definitely worth having bottles of this in at home if you’re looking to cut back on how much you drink. They also do a blush version which I’m really looking forward to trying out!
St Peter’s Without
St Peter’s Without is a super range of alcohol free beer. The beer comes in three varieties all brewed to craft ale standard yet without the alcohol. Original is full bodied and deliciously malty. The Gold ale is also full bodied with a malty taste but also a citrus bitterness. The Organic ale is much lighter on the malty flavour but has a sweet pleasant aftertaste.
All the St Peter’s Without beer is very drinkable, lovely chilled on a summers day and super easy to pair with summer food – Ploughman’s platters, delicious artisan pork pies, BBQ food or even a plateful of really good bangers and mash.
It’s the first alcohol free beer I’ve tried that still tasted really good!
