Gin and Tonic. The G to my T is a much enjoyed beverage in my house on a weekendly basis. There’s nothing I love more to finish the week with than a cheeky beverage. I’m actually quite mindful of what I drink and how much I drink, mainly because I find alcohol isn’t the best for my mental health and let’s be honest no one likes a hangover! So I keep sober Sunday to Thursday and then on a Friday and Saturday I love a G&T treat.
But what if I were to tell you that there’s another option? I mean we all know about the usual soft drink favourites, juices, fizzys and honestly, lemonade in my opinion is highly under-rated. But what if you wanted that refreshing cocktail taste without the alcohol? Well today I’m introducing to the blog the Sipling Beverage Company.
When they reached out to me and asked if I’d like to receive some of their products I couldn’t wait to try! Especially as they do a non-alcoholic version of my favourite – the G&T! I was very kindly sent a box of three non-alcoholic cocktails. Firstly the case they arrived in, I have to talk about this as it is so beautiful, a wooden box with the Sipling logo carved in the top and a golden clasp. So beautiful, and a perfect edition to my kitchen drinks display.
Sipling Beverage Company do a variety of six different non-alcoholic cocktails – Gin and Tonic, Mojito, Old Cuban, Bellini, Rum and Cola and Moscow Mule. I received in my taster case, the Gin and Tonic, the Mojito and the Old Cuban.
So what did I think? Firstly the G&T, for me it tasted like a single gin and tonic, not bitter at all but filled with beautiful botanicals and actually so much more refreshing than an actual gin and tonic. The flavours were beautiful and accompanied with ice and lemon was a perfect beverage for an afternoon in the sun, and as it was national Gin and Tonic day in the America yesterday it seemed like a perfect opportunity to enjoy it. Next the mojito. My absolute favourite cocktail, however this time mock-tail! Again, super refreshing and gorgeous hints of lime and mint, poured over ice a truly beautiful beverage. And lastly the Old Cuban, full of fruity flavour and again so perfect for a summers day in the garden.
All of these non-alcoholic cocktails were so flavoursome and so refreshing, and the fact that it’s all pre mixed and ready to go is perfect! I’m actually tempted to buy the rest! Especially if I’m ever designated driver at a friends or family bbq after lockdown. They’re a great alternative to popular soft drinks that are usually full of artificial sugars or sweeteners, and they’re all vegetarian and vegan friendly! So everyone can enjoy!
They would also make the perfect gift, the case they came in was so beautiful and at such a reasonable price of just £19.49 for a mixed taster case of 6, they would be so good for anyone who doesn’t drink at all or would like to cut down on the alcohol. For a small business starting from one mans passion to cutting down on alcohol consumption in his family, they’ve come so far, receiving so many awards and nominations, they’re really growing and I can see why! They also provide free UK mainland shipping and discounts on multiple case purchases.
So whilst the sun is shining on lockdown why not try something new and a little different. Simply chill, relax and take a sip on Sipling. As always I’ve linked the products below if you wanted to have a browse. Have you tried Sipling Beverage Company? And and you a fan of a mocktail? So stay home, stay safe, take a sip and enjoy the sun from inside or outside where you can this bank holiday x
