6 Non-Alcoholic Party Drink Swaps
We all know that alcohol isn’t great for your health (yes, one could argue that red wine has some health benefits) but generally speaking, alcohol offers no nutritional value.
When you drink alcohol, your body works super hard to try and excrete it, prioritising this above all other bodily functions so that it can go back to digesting the good stuff that actually helps it thrive. What does that tell you!?
Moreover, alcohol is not your friend when it comes to brain function, mood and of course, sleep (which we take very seriously here at GMB). Not to mention that mixers are also laden with sugar which come with its own list of negative health impacts.
Now, we are huge believers here at GMB that restriction just does not work - but as always, we're all about making smarter swaps.
Below are some of our fave non-alcoholic beverages you can enjoy at your next social event!
1. Swap Vodka for Seedlip
Made with a blend of fruits, botanicals, herbs and spices, Seedlip's range is also free of sugar and doesn't contain any artificial flavours or sweeteners. Be sure to check out this Citrus Smash Mocktail recipe!
2. Swap Gin & Tonic for Monday Distillery
Say hello to this alcohol-free G&T! Combining natural botanicals with a sprinkle of rosemary, sea salt and other tonic herbs, what you've got yourself is a delicious, sugar-free beverage, minus the morning hangover!
3. Swap Cider for Osun Sparkling
You know when you feel like something a little fancy? Osun Sparkling Water is for those times. They're basically botanical-infused sparkling waters positively charged with crystals... yep! How cool is that? Talk about good vibes only. Oh, and there's also sugar-free.
4. Swap Ginger Beer for ALT Soft Drink
We totally get it, sometimes you just feel like a soft drink to go with your alcoholic beverage or simply just to quench your thirst. Enter: ALT. Containing less sugar than conventional soft drinks, ALT is made with real fruit juice and is naturally sweetened with plant-based stevia.
5. Swap Beer for Remedy Kombucha
We love that Remedy kombucha offers the same "fizz" sensation as some alcoholic beverages and just like beer, it's fermented... but way better for yo with the added bonus of gut lovin' probiotics. They also have a great range of flavours to choose from, so there's something for everyone!
6. Swap Lemonade for Capi Soda
Capi Soda is a great swap for sugary soft drinks! A super refreshing soda water, it makes for a great pairing with Seedlip as a mixer or enjoyed on its own or infused with fruit or a slice of lemon!
