Spring has finally arrived! It’s the season for Easter parties, backyard barbecues, and picnics in the park, AKA the perfect time to get creative with zero-proof recipes. Here are a few ideas for how to get into the spring spirit – sans alcohol.
Take inspiration from your garden
We all know a thoughtful garnish can elevate a cocktail from good to great. As plants begin to bloom and gardens begin to thrive, you can have a wealth of fun cocktail additions right in your backyard! Spring flowers like nasturtium, marigold, and hibiscus are all safe to eat and look beautiful decorating the rim of a glass.
There are also plenty of fresh herbs that you can incorporate into your recipes this season. Things like basil, rosemary, and mint are all classic cocktail ingredients and easy to grow at home! Keep a little planter by your windowsill for a fresh addition to your drink any time you want it. Our Havana Nights kit calls for fresh mint, and it’s the perfect spring drink roundup!
Take it to-go
There’s no reason to stay inside when the weather is this beautiful! Grab a few friends, a picnic blanket, and some zero-proof ready-to-drink options for a day of alcohol-free fun in the park. Picnics are a perfect spring activity, especially now that the days are warmer and the sun is out longer. You can bring along food, games, and music to keep you and your group entertained all day long. Plus, with the huge amount of zero-proof drinks available now, you can be sure to find different options that will suit everyone’s tastes.
You could also make it a solo trip! Treat yourself to a relaxing day outdoors with a can of your favorite non-alcoholic drink and a good book (or a bunch of TikToks, we’re not judging). Outdoor day drinking can lead to issues like dehydration and heat exhaustion, so substituting typical alcoholic beverages with zero-proof options is a great way to enjoy your day without any extra stress.
Throw a cocktail party
Just because you’re not drinking doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a sophisticated cocktail party. Spring is the perfect time to get together with friends and family, and you want to ensure there’s something for everyone on the menu. That’s why we’ve put together our Spring Fling cocktail bundle, to make your seasonal entertaining delicious, easy, AND inclusive.
This bundle includes everything from our Blueberry Shrub, Lavender Haze, and Havana Nights boxes, so there’s sure to be something that everyone at your table can enjoy.
