Cocktails are fun, they set the mood, you can’t be both down in the dumps and drinking a Strawberry Daiquiri. That's just science.
Is it really a whole year since the last World Cocktail Day? Man, what a year it’s been too, mostly hunkered down in our bunkers fashioning non-alcoholic cocktails from the mighty triumvirate – STRYKK NOT G*N, STRYKK NOT V*DKA, STRYKK NOT R*M - dreaming of the day when we can get dolled up again for public consumption. But from today, and proceeding at pace when the bars fling open their saloon doors on May 17th, it’s cocktails-a-go-go and we’re hitting it hard.
Whether it’s our non-alcoholic gin in a Bramble made in the kitchen, or you’re out on the tiles, watching in awed reverence as someone wearing braces (trousers, not teeth) throws together a mind-blowing non-alcoholic Pina Colada, or an alcohol-free Mojito using STRYKK NOT R*M that tastes just like the original – the most important thing is that you’re back with your mob, your people, making moments and living your life. Celebrating great cocktails – like the one you have before an amazing meal, or the one that arrives as an impromptu treat on a hot afternoon, complete with an unnecessary brolly in it.
Cocktails are fun, they set the mood, you can’t be both down in the dumps and drinking a Strawberry Daiquiri. It’s not possible. That’s just science.
Now at this point, eagle-eyed sleuths might have noticed the glaring omission of the dreaded M-word so often bandied around when you’re talking alcohol-free cocktails… Mocktails - the catch-all term, that comes complete with the vague whiff of inferiority, like you’re a cover-band desperately clawing at credibility.
So, let’s spell it out: WE DON’T DO MOCKTAILS. We don’t peddle mocktail recipes, we are very much not part of the mocktail community. Our non-alcoholic cocktails aren’t a pretender to something purportedly better, they’re not a pale shadow cowering beneath a giant behemoth, they’re their own category – club classics made with STRYKK. The same great mixers as you’d always get (if you’re at home, we’d strongly recommend the unparalleled genius of Funkin Cocktails on that front) but with our kick-ass non-alcoholic spirits bringing it all home.
Have a nosy at the growing list of STRYKK cocktail bundles we have available, and toast yourself on another great decision. Here’s to World Cocktail Day and a great summer ahead – cheers!
