Mocktails™, one of the first low/no alcoholic beverage companies to emerge in the now explosive category, has unveiled its new nitro, ready-to-drink, alcohol-free 200 ml canned cocktails, now available for on-premise sales (restaurants, bars, hotels and resorts) in the U.S.
A first in packaging innovation for non-alcoholic beverages, a category predicted to be worth more than $30 billion by 2025 (Global Market Insights), the cans – that are already raking in awards across the globe – contain a nitro widget that replicates how a bartender shakes a cocktail in a bar or restaurant. The widget releases nitrogen bubbles that disrupt the molecular structure of the mocktail, creating a light foam upon pouring – much like the effect achieved after shaking a regular cocktail.
During a time when the hospitality industry continues to face challenges with staffing, training, costs and consistency, Mocktails offers a solution that saves businesses critical time and resources while increasing profits through innovative bar programming.
“Mocktails was founded on the principles of quality and innovation in a then wildly-underserved industry category,” said Mocktails™ Founder & CEO Bill Gamelli. “The introduction of nitro technology in our canned lineup brings us one step closer to delivering on our promise for both sides of the bar – a simplified pour that upholds our unprecedented standards for flavor and experience.”
Senior Vice President Brian Barrett added: “The new nitro cans give restaurant operators and their bartenders the opportunity to make more drinks, maintain quality, and give guests the ability to enjoy non-alcoholic cocktails that are non GMO, gluten free and vegan-friendly.”
Since its inception, Mocktails Beverages has accumulated the most awards in the low/no category. Each flavor is developed in close collaboration with Ezra Star, an award-winning mixologist, using 100% natural ingredients sourced from around the world, with no preservatives or additives.
The five Nitro flavors include the following:
New Espress0% MARTINI (Gold Medal – The Spirits Business Global Pre-Mixed RTD Masters 2022): A rich indulgence of cold brew espresso with chocolate undertones and vanilla. Serve chilled in a Martini glass with coffee beans for decoration.
The Vida Loca Mockarita (Silver Medal- San Francisco World Spirits Competition; Gold Medal – The Spirits Business Global Cocktail and Signature Serve Masters 2022): A classic with a twist that will take you straight to the beach. Serve in a Margarita glass, add a salt rim and garnish with a lime wheel.
Karma Sucra Mockapolitan (Double Gold Medal – San Francisco World Spirits Competition; Master Medal – The Spirits Business Global Cocktail and Signature Serve Masters 2022): Subtle and sophisticated, but not too sweet. Serve in a Martini glass, garnish with an orange slice.
Scottish Lemonade Moscow Mule (Silver Medal- San Francisco World Spirits Competition; Silver Medal – The Spirits Business Global Cocktail and Signature Serve Masters 2022): Sicilian & Argentinian lemons create the most refreshing of tastes. Serve in a Rocks glass over ice, garnish with lemon peel.
Sevilla Red Sansgria (Silver Medal – San Francisco World Spirits Competition): The French, Italian & Spanish wine grapes will transport you to Sevilla. Serve in a wine glass over ice, garnish with an orange slice.
