Mocktail Club

Founder: Pauline Idogho

Price: $16.95 for 4-pack

Available on Amazon.

Thanks to Mocktail Club founder Pauline Idogho you can still celebrate festive times with flavorful and sparkling beverages. Partake in a Manhattan Berry (a mix of blackberries, pear shrub, and a dominant linger of ginger) or Capri Sour (a tart Italian Spritz-like blend of pomegranate, cranberry, apple cider vinegar, and lemongrass) sans the alcohol. The ready-to-drink mocktails can be enjoyed on their own or mixed in with a favorite recipe.

Choosing to cut alcohol for health reasons or going sober just because has never been easier. Inspired by her global travels and quest to find healthy and enjoyable alternatives to alcohol, Pauline began creating bold and daring flavors that are typically not found in non-alcoholic beverages. What started as a passion project has evolved into something quite significant.

Recently featured on WGBH, an NPR affiliate with another notable non-alcoholic brand, Athletic Brewing, Pauline advocates for the rising need for liquor-free drinks and the rapid increase in this emerging sector.
