Would you like your cocktail, shaken or stirred, with or without alcohol?

12th February, 2020: Are you ‘Drink Twinning’? Do you want the experience, taste and look from a cocktail but with the choice of having it without alcohol whilst your friend has it with alcohol? Then you are sipping your way through the big trend for 2020.

The Botanist, known for being leading drinks innovators, have announced the launch of the new cocktail collection where you can sip exactly the same cocktail as your friend – almost the same. No longer do those opting for a non alcoholic alternative need to feel like they’re missing out with a selection of drinks delivering the same experience, taste profile and look but without the alcohol.

The first cocktail to be launched is a twist on the signature cocktail, The Botanist, and is served in a crystal cut glass with crushed ice:

The Botanist (non-alcoholic) – £4.95
Bax Botanics Verbena, Belvoir Elderflower, Jasmine syrup, red amaranth, fresh mint, lime juice and lemonade.

The Botanist (alcoholic) – £7.95
Bacardi Carta Blanca rum, Ketel One vodka, St Germain, jasmine syrup, red amaranth, fresh mint, lime juice and lemonade

Jack Jolly, national campaign manager for The New World Trading Company said: “As the mindful drinking movement continues to rise non-alcoholic drinks are in the spotlight, creating more opportunities for those with a wellness-orientated approach to drinking. 

Our new cocktails are designed to offer all the quality and depth of flavour of The Botanist cocktails, but without losing out on the theatre of the cocktail experience. Both versions have the delicious and delicate flavours, the fresh ingredients and are poured into a crystal cut glass. You won’t be able to tell the difference.”  

With an array of drinks to satisfy even the most sophisticated of palates the new menu mirrors the award winning classics, so sober curious customers can have exactly the same experience but without the alcohol. The new cocktail collection includes some of The Botanists’ classics, including The Botanist, Apricot Mai Tai, Thai Chilli Crush, Rhubarb and Sage Spritz, Disaronno Sour, Strawberry and Elderflower Mojito in a new non-alcoholic form and will sit alongside the extensive botanical cocktail menu.

The Botanist prides itself on offering the very best pub experience reimagined for the modern day. With this new menu it aims to ensure that those who don’t want to drink alcohol can still have the same great botanical taste experience.
