Mocktails are having a moment, for good reason: you get all of the flavor and fun of sipping a cocktail, without risking a headache the next morning. Making the perfect drink is simple to master, and Evolution Fresh is here to help.
First, you’ll want to use quality, flavorful ingredients—but squeezing fruits and veggies can take up a lot of your precious time. That’s where Evolution Fresh comes in. Their juices are organic and processed under high pressure, which means you get serious fresh-off-the-vine flavor without any fillers, such as corn syrup or mystery ingredients.
Once your mocktail is mixed, skip the water glasses and elevate your concoction by serving it in crystal coupes, embellished tumblers, or even wine glasses. Statement glasses will make your gathering feel even more festive.
Lastly, dress up your mocktail with an orange peel twist, leafy celery stick, mint sprig, or raspberries. You don’t want to go overboard, but a simple garnish that compliments the ingredients in your mocktail goes a long way in making an impression. For example, a watermelon wedge perched on the rim of a watermelon mocktail looks and tastes great.
