Memorial Day unofficially kicks off the summer season with pool parties, barbequed meals, and boozy beverages — that is, unless you’re partaking in one of the many sober movements that have grown in popularity since the start of 2021. First there was sober curious, the title of author Ruby Warrington’s 2018 novel that poses the question, “Would life be better without alcohol?” with the goal of redefining your relationship with booze. Next came California sober, a phrase made popular following Demi Lovato’s March 2021 interview on CBS Sunday Morning, where they discussed their decision to forgo alcohol and hard drugs in favor of marijuana.
Whether you identify with either or simply want to enjoy the goodness of a mocktail, we present to you the best non-alcoholic beverages to sip this Memorial Day.
If you’re into citrus-forward IPAs, full-bodied ales, and light and bubbly brews, this award-winning Canadian brewing company offers nine non-alcoholic beers that taste like the real deal. With simple, all-natural ingredients and as low as 10 calories a can, you’ll wonder why you didn’t Partake sooner. Enjoy their refreshing and light-bodied Lime while it’s here for the summer season.
Bask in the chill of CBD with 25 mg of premium hemp extract in each of these sparkling bevs available in three summer-ready combos: Blueberry, Lemon & Ginger; Cucumber, Melon, & Lime, and Grapefruit, Basil, & Mint. The slight tang of each flavor leaves taste buds with the impression of liquor minus the downsides of drinking.
The brand that is known for its on-point alcohol alternatives just became that much cooler with premix classics like Gin and Tonic, Amalfi Spritz, and Classico that way you never have to stop the party to craft a mix.
