Summer Mocktail Guide
Updated: Jun 26, 2018
We all love a good cocktail. However, sometimes we can't have alcohol for whatever reason. That will never be a reason why you can't enjoy Nail the Cocktail on Instagram, Facebook or this blog! For anyone who does not drink, can not drink, or is just tired of booze for whatever reason: I'm creating this guide for you. Anytime I go out, I will make sure to check and ask if there are mocktails on the menu. Just because you don't drink doesn't mean you can't have a drink in your hand to match your manicure..or your lifestyle. Cheers!
Clover Society - Mocktail
This is one of my all time favorite mocktails. It is made with Muddled Raspberries, Gifford's Orgeat, Lemon Juice, Egg White, and topped with Club Soda. You can find it at Mooo.... Restaurant which is located in Beacon Hill, adjacent to the XV Beacon Hotel. Mooo.... has one of the most impressive mocktail programs I have ever come across. Bar Chef, Deb Lawson, really creates innovative and delicious recipes that you would never know the booze was left out of. As always, if you think this mocktail sounds amazing and would love to turn it into a cocktail, Mooo.... will add a spirit of your choice upon request!
The House at Mooo Corner - Mocktail
This mocktail is one of the most refreshing drinks I have ever had. It is made with Muddled Mint, Honey, and Lemon. This one is for all my broads who love skinny drinks, Soul Cycle and eat kale by choice. No seriously, I felt like I had the best green juice that tasted like it was worth $78.28 because of the organic ingredients most likely used...but it was less than $15 and still had me feeling bougie and healthy AF. Try it and let me know what you think!
Lavender - Mocktail
Now this cocktail was created on the fly. It is made with Lavender Syrup, Lemon, and Raspberry. I walked into Mooo.... to get drinks with a friend and asked Deb all about her mocktails and she made this for me. If you go...just ask her for the Lavender mocktail. IT. IS. INCREDIBLE. I'm pretty sure it's going to be on the menu but in the event it's not just pull up this picture and thank me later.!
SUMIAO HUNAN KITCHEN
Coco Matchatte - Mocktail
If you live, work, breath in, pass through Cambridge my go to spot for mocktails AND cocktails is Sumiao Hunan Kitchen. This mocktail is made with matcha powder, coconut cream, and soy milk. As always you can choose to add booze upon request to it. However, I would drink this with no booze (shocker)! It's sweet and perfect for anyone...especially if you love matcha. This mocktail is high up on my list so find some time to check out Sumiao Hunan. Also, your Starbucks green tea latte could never.
Watermelon on the Beach
Allow me to introduce you to to arguably the most summer ready mocktail you'll ever lay eyes on. This is made with coconut cream, coconut water, and watermelon, puree. This is what Beyonce gets drunk in love with when she's abstaining from booze. This is what every basic girl who looks in the mirror every day and says "I'm not basic" needs. This is for all my preggo mamas in the 617. This mocktail has no business looking this good. This mocktail has a 401k, good credit, and a Porsche in the driveway. Get you one.
