Zero-proof drinks have quickly become an increasingly popular alternative to alcohol consumption. This year, various authors have published books featuring N/A recipes ranging from easy beverages for home bartenders to complex concoctions that fit seamlessly on any cocktail menu. These drinks, known as spritzes, coolers, punches and aperitifs by various names such as “spritzes, coolers,” “coolers” “coolers,” punches or “aperitifs”, contain ingredients like fruit syrups, acid phosphate, teas or even sous vide-infused cocktails. Julia Bainbridge’s “Sober October” 2020 release takes a Shirley Temple-like approach: she forgoes the classic grenade cocktail but does reach for it with Kitten Whiskers (an homage to David Embury’s Pussyfoot), mixing pomegranate syrup with lime, lemon and aquafaba for Kitten Whiskers (in line with Embury). Others such as Camille Wilson’s Free Spirit Cocktails or Elva Ramirez’s Zero Proof Drinks and More are crowd pleasers that don’t necessitate frequent trips back into specialty-ingredient aisles.
