Inspired by the Instagram of at-home bartenders, Regatta Craft Mixers is offering up a range of delicious and refreshing mocktails and low-ABV cocktail recipes this winter season for folks who enjoy cocktail prep but are looking to reduce their calorie intake and/or alcohol consumption.
“The evolution of mocktails and low-ABV cocktails over the past couple of years has been eye-opening,” says Sam Zarou, CEO of Regatta Craft Mixers & Affinity Beverages LLC. “As the trends toward drinking better-for-you beverages with lower calorie counts have gained momentum, at-home bartenders have turned their attention to developing more interesting and great-tasting drink recipes made with a range of ingredients from fresh herbs & spices to seasonal fruits & vegetables, organic juices, roots, barks, and botanicals. Our amazing online community of creative mixologists have mixed up some inspired no- and low-ABV recipes that greatly outshine their premixed canned counterparts and rival the best-tasting full-ABV alternatives.”
