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, has 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: Belvoir Elderflower, Bax Seabuckthorn, 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, using Bax botanicals, and will sit alongside the extensive botanical cocktail menu.
Whether you are ‘Drinks Twinning’ or trying something new, January is over, and The Botanist is welcoming Feb-You-Ary.
Whatever is tantalising your taste buds The Botanist has the perfect treat, just for you. From the delicious vegan menu for those wanting to continue ‘Veganuary’ through to a mouth-watering selection of roastery and deli dishes.
