We are living in a golden age of grown-up, non-alcoholic drinks. Once upon a time, those eschewing alcohol were relegated to sugary soft drinks, club soda, and plain old water. Recent years, though, have seen a surge in the mocktail scene , with lots of pros whipping up tasty, alcohol-free alternatives to help those who choose not to drink. More restaurants and bars are offering "soft" and no-ABV cocktail options than ever, and now that the sober-curious trend has become a full-blown movement, creative distillers have come up with non-alcoholic options to replace the nuances that traditional booze might provide. Filled with carefully selected flavor notes to evoke traditional spirits, these substitutes for whiskey, rum, gin, vodka, and liqueurs that will please even the most discerning palates.
Whether you're looking to cut back over the holidays or seeking a flavorful option for Dry January, these are some of the best non-alcoholic spirits to add to your collection.
