Drink and Drive - Mocktails: Trendy drinks for the Advent season!

It’s that time of the year again: mulled wine at the Christmas market, a glass of wine with the turkey, champagne to celebrate the festive season. Advent is the time when people look forward to the festive season, but also when they tend to consume much more alcohol than usual. There is no question that the desire to drink alcohol does not mix well with the desire to drive. The designated driver usually has to settle for sparkling water rather than sparkling wine. There are, however, tasty alternatives to flavourless water: mocktails (a portmanteau word formed from ‘cocktail‘ and ‘mock‘) allow you to stay sober while enjoying a drink – and they also let you get behind the wheel with a clear conscience.

As was the case not so long ago when there were barely any vegan restaurants, we will find in the future that there are also more and more places which offer a variety of alcohol-free drinks.
