Mocktails are stirring up the food and beverage industry one alcohol-less shaker at a time. These refreshing, non-alcoholic and often coffee-based beverages are delicious alternatives to their boozy counterparts. At How You Brewin, we’ve begun crafting concoctions that rival cocktails in flavor and nutritional value! Here’s a few of our favorite invigorating mocktail recipes that you can mix up right from home.
The Ginger Mule is a delicious take on the Moscow Mule, only instead of Vodka, we’re using cold brew. Add muddled lime, ice, ginger beer and a sprig of rosemary and you’ve got yourself a delicious, alcohol-free cocktail. The rosemary lends a gentle, woodsy aroma while the cold brew compliments the spicy ginger beer and supplies a subtle caffeine buzz.
A traditional Old Fashioned contains muddled sugar and bitters, whiskey and a twist of citrus. For our “Cold Fashioned,” replace the sweet notes of whisky with vanilla and chocolate syrup. Add a splash of cold brew for a little kick and a cherry on top for good measure!
The fragrant Strawberry Refresher is the perfect patio companion. Fill a tall, chilled glass with muddled strawberries, seltzer, simple syrup and a squeezed lemon. Float a few freshly sliced cucumbers along the top of the drink for a crisp, subtle flavor.
One taste and our Blueberry Vanilla Refresher will become your favorite post-beach beverage this summer. Combine muddled blueberry, seltzer, squeezed lemon and a bit of vanilla extract to balance out the fruity flavors.
You can recreate these simple mocktails at home with just a few basic ingredients and our house cold brew. Hankering for a professional to mix up your drink? Give our brand new mocktail bar a visit this summer! As you may have noticed, our Surf City location has been undergoing quite an expansion. The finished space will include a fully-stocked mocktail bar from which our baristas will be slinging specialty, non-alcoholic beverage like fruity refreshers and espresso-based martinis. Stop in for creative versions of your favorite bar drinks, so you can get the buzz without the dehydrating and calorie-heavy alcohol!

In recent years, cold brew has taken the coffee industry by storm. So popular is this artisan beverage, that it’s graduated from brick-and-mortar coffee shops to restaurants, grocery stores and even home refrigerators. Coffee aficionados can access the drink almost anywhere.

If you’ve visited us at How You Brewin’ in recent months, you may have noticed a few “tiny” changes - like, say, the brand new façade stretched across the south half of the building, or the sounds of drilling and hammering below the soothing musical stylings of John Mayer. So what’s been brewing behind the closed doors (and temporary plywood storefront) of our latest project?
