Raise a Glass To Good Health: Our Favorite Zero-Proof Mixology Recipes

Looking to refresh your cocktail repertoire? Whether you're a mocktail aficionado, or you simply want to raise the bar on your at-home culinary creations, non-alcoholic cocktails can provide endless opportunities for flavor complexity and style. Now, tea can be your next favorite secret ingredient! For over two decades, Michelin Chefs have used TEALEAVES blends as their favorite mixology trick. With the ability to add both aromatics and tannin, the infusion of tea can enliven your classic cocktail creations with bitter, savory, herbal, or even earthy flavor profiles.

The cherry on top? With no high-fructose syrups, artificial sweeteners, or alcoholic spirits, tea-infused zero-proof creations are not only deliciously complex, but also provide a health-forward twist on your favorite cocktails. Cheers!

What is a zero-proof cocktail?

Mirroring the complexity of a craft cocktail, zero-proof concoctions provide an alcohol-free way to enjoy an elegant cocktail. Sophisticated and deeply flavorful, zero-proof cocktails infuse non-alcoholic spirit alternatives that can achieve the same flavor and nuance of a cocktail.

What makes a great zero-proof cocktail?

The secret to zero-proof cocktails lies in the balance of flavor profiles. Balancing the sweet, sour, bitter or umami notes of a cocktail are essential in achieving an elevated zero-proof drink. For the recipes including vodka, we typically recommend incorporating white grape juice, soda water, or apple cider combined with lime juice as substitutes. For the recipes with bourbon, we recommend combining peach nectar and cider vinegar or non-alcoholic vanilla extract and water. Shrubs, natural syrups, herbs, juices, tonics, and teas are all wonderful ingredients that offer the depth of flavor and no alcohol at all.
