The end of the year always comes with the promise of high spirits…in more ways than one. Christmas and New Year are almost synonymous with feasting and drinking lots of alcohol it’s almost become part of the festival itself. And while for most of us, that can sound like a blast, for those who don’t drink alcohol, it can be a bit of a downer. 

Luckily, in recent years there has been a shift in perspectives for people who are avoiding alcohol or simply sober curious, and it’s led to massive innovations in the space of non-alcoholic spirits which offer the cocktail drinking experience without any of the hangover. For example, Seedlip with its three distinct non-alcoholic spirits have made it possible to craft sophisticated mocktails that are imbued with goodness. Made from pure botanical extracts, they all people to avoid cocktails at Christmas without feeling like they’re missing out. 

Naturally, when it comes to holiday drinks, you have to take cues from the flavours of the season. Warm spices, floral notes and of course, the ever-popular peppermint. Peppermint mocktails are a great way to indulge in a drink that’s refreshing and vibrant, which will inspire you to feel the spirit of the season.

For a truly spectacular Christmas tipple, try these mocktails imbued with the power of peppermint.
