Alcohol has been a potent part of the human existence for as long as we can remember. From Stone Age men and women in Southern Turkey, to the primates long before our homo-sapien era, drinking has become a true, ancient ritual. Breaking down the barriers of consciousness and feeding into our strategy of social bonding, it could be argued that alcohol has played a crucial part in our evolution.
However, on the flip side, have we perhaps taken it a little too far? Especially after the great pandemonium and binge drinking culture that has cultivated itself through uni life, perhaps it’s time to pull back the reigns? Easier said than done, you may say, which is why we’ve collated a comprehensive list of the best alcohol-free beverages on the market. Hopefully this will make it a little easier to enjoy everything in moderation.
1. Curious Elixir.
Coming in at number one, is the famed ‘Curious Elixir’; a bottled cocktail, with none of the nasties. After its social media success, Curious Elixir gained traction from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Refinery29. Although slightly on the pricey side, this won’t be one to miss.
Price: £36 +
Where to buy: On their website or on Amazon.
