What is Your Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink? (the search for benign spirits)



I do get bored easily.  I never cook the same thing twice.  I have to have different flavors to keep interested.  I like variety and I am bored to death with water and lemon.  Where is this leading, you may ask?  Weeellll, because of the work I do, I was advised that drinking alcohol, even the incredibly moderate amount I do consume, is unwise.

Everything has a spirit.  Alcohol has its own spirit.  (Doug then said matter-of-factly, “That’s why it’s called spirits!” Oh yea…never thought of that!)  But, unfortunately for wine snobs like me, not necessarily a good spirit.  And one, even if I am not presently drinking, that can fight against my own when doing my work.  Enough said, I was getting bored (gasp) with wine too.

But I need inspiration!  I need everyone that reads this blog, my friends, my confidants to note their favorite non-alcoholic concoction.  Sweet tea?  Kombucha?  Juice?….Okay, those are all my ideas.  Sound off, my friends!

Your favorite non-alcoholic drink….

    I like licorice tea. In the summer cucumber water can be a good alternative to lemon water.

  2. I like sparkling water over ice, lemon and elderflower cordial! Lovely and the cordial is also nice with tonic water, and tonic water is nice with cucumber slices and lime wedges! Quite a selection there from someone who likes a good gin and tonic or a glass of wine 😉

    Hibiscus tea with a splash of lemon and honey is divine. Both hot and cold version are recommended!

    Fruit infused water or herbal infusions are always a fun way to go if you don’t want to get bored. endless combinations can be concocted.

  5. I love Victoria’s Kitchen Almond – Coconut water. I get it on Amazon. First tried it in an airport in Montana. They have different flavors…so yummy!
