London's Best Mocktails
Not all the best cocktails have to contain alcohol, they just have to contain some serious deliciousness. A lot of cocktail caverns in London have just as an extensive mocktail list as cocktail list, so why not indulge, y'know, without over indulging. For those who don't drink alcohol or if you simply fancy a detox - but still want to enjoy a selection of tongue tingling drinks - then check our list of the best bars in London for non-alcoholic cocktails.
Trader Vic’s is known for serving the original Mai Tai recipe, but they’ve also made a name for themselves in the virgin cocktail department. The No Mai Tai would naturally be a good place to start, with the creamy pineapple Puerto Principe and the Queen Charlotte Fruit Punch also offering a taste of the tiki without the hard stuff.
Boasting the most extensive range of non-alcoholic tipples in their armoury, The Be at One chain offers a wide selection of punchy, fruity and exotic concoctions like the Honkin Don Logan - a blend of banana, cinnamon, honey roast nuts, coconut cream, pineapple and orange with a dollop of ice cream thrown in for good measure - at only £3!
Barrio Soho boasts a choice of non-alcoholic cocktails that come your way for just £4. The Classic Batida is a standout option - its comprised of condensed milk, coconut and lime, and the Aqua Fresca - a South American staple filled with pineapple or melon - sounds equally as appetising!
Head over to this exquisite cocktail bar in Shoreditch for a delectable choice of mocktails!
