Get out and ask for a zero-proof option

As you are out and about this January, ask your bartenders to make you an interesting zero-proof option that goes beyond an Arnold Palmer or Shirley Temple.

Seattle mixologist Jermaine Whitehead, Bar Lead at Seattle’s popular Il Nido restaurant, shared some advice with us about how to order a non-alcoholic drink at a bar. Jermaine suggests telling the bartender what you’re looking for – something sweet, something sour, something bitter? Asking for flavor notes help.

“Just saying what you’re into right now and we can have fun with it. And saying what you don’t like,” he said. Jermaine also reminds us to not be shy when asking for something non-alcoholic if it’s not on the menu. “We can go off the menu and make you what you want. It changes the daily routine.”

He recommends using herbs, spices, and fresh produce as flavor notes when creating a zero-proof cocktail. “I want you to be stoked that you’re having this,” he said.
