Summer has arrived, bringing with it the anticipation of lazy beach days, slow living, and sun-soaked adventures. And while you’re taking advantage of the extra sunshine, staying hydrated might become an afterthought—or even a burden, if you’re not a fan of drinking plain water. To spare you from resorting to sugar-loaded sodas for the rest of summer, we rounded up an A-list of refreshing non-alcoholic sips that’ll perfectly complement your warm-weather activities, whether you’re looking for a road-trip companion, someone to cheer you up on the tennis court, or simply a weighty reason for your beach towel to wait for you while you’re fighting with the waves. No matter where your summer takes you, let these non-alcoholic bevs help you recharge and replenish energy on any day spent outdoors—or just daydreaming of the outdoors—cause isn’t it the mindset that really matters?
CleanCo’s range of non-alcoholic spirits look, feel, and taste like the real thing. British entrepreneur and TV personality Spencer Matthews created CleanCo as an alternative to alcohol that doesn’t preach, doesn’t have a morning after effect, and is true to the social ceremony of drinking.
Clean V Apple is a crisp, smooth reinvention of vodka for all those summer cocktails that call for a clean, but nuanced base spirit. Smooth green apple and cinnamon spice come together in a crisp palate that uplifts with each sip. Whether you crave the simple ceremony of an ice-cold vodka soda or a tangy Cosmopolitan, Clean V acts as a natural stand-in for a non-alcoholic or low-proof expression of any vodka drink. The clear matte bottle is an added chic bonus, making this an impressive gift for your NA spirit-loving Cancers, Leos, and Virgos.
Inspired by the biomes of the natural world, conservation biologist, bartender, and bar owner Paul Mathew created Everleaf drinks. Each Everleaf apéritif is crafted with sustainably sourced ingredients and designed to carry you to a specific place in nature: a crisp mountaintop, a lush forest, or, like in our case, to a refreshing Mediterranean seascape.
Marine is the crisp, invigorating expression of the Everleaf family. Created with gin drinkers in mind and inspired by the Mediterranean, it’s made with 16 sustainably sourced botanicals. Flavors of the land and sea combine in a lively blend of fresh flavors and notes of umami. This one ignites the imagination, reminding us there’s a whole world of underwater forests and sea-dwelling creatures out there. In Everleaf Marine, sharp notes of juniper and bergamot dance alongside fresh sea buckthorn, woody labdanum, and savory olive leaf, while kelp and dulse bring hints of umami and salt to the palate. The aperitif was designed with a spritz in mind: mix three parts light tonic to one part Everleaf Marine over ice, garnish with a lemon or lime and enjoy.
Born on the coasts of France and Italy, the classic non-alcoholic Apéritif is a bold combination of botanicals that kickstart the appetite and the conversation. Light and dry, an apéritif is perfect for slow-sipping and fast-talking, a drink that takes friends from sunset to sunrise. Vibrant, fresh and satisfyingly bitter, it tastes like summer on the rocks. Ghia’s versatile apéritif brings depth to any Spritz, just add bubbles. Each glass promises to kick up the energy and calm down the mind. Offers a biting combination of botanical extracts powerful enough to bring out the best version of you without numbing the night—or the next morning.
Both a delight for innovation lovers and a nightmare for grocery clerks trying to figure which aisle to put it on, SAYSO is creating a new category in the beverage space. Designed as a three-minute solution to making premium craft cocktails, SAYSO comes in a tea bag format, but unlike regular tea, infuses with cold water. All you have to do is combine water and non-alcoholic spirits, steep your cocktail tea bag for ~3 minutes, add ice, and voilà — a flawless mocktail, every time.
To make things even easier, we bundled SAYSO with some of our best spirits, like the Clean T tequila alternative in the Cardamon Paloma Cocktail Bundle. Featuring an 8-pack of SAYSO Non-Alcoholic Skinny Cardamom Paloma and CleanCo’s bespoke non-alcoholic tequila, this bundle makes for good taste that doesn’t require tedious preparation. Let’s get this party started.
