What to drink when you’re not drinking – take your martini dry with Lyre’s booze-free spirits
You may be participating in Dry January or just detoxing from the festive season altogether, but for those of us sensible (and selfless) enough to bear the burden of being designated driver on a night out, the craving for a cocktail can be a moralistic tug-o-war. That’s where Lyre’s steps in – a range of delicious non-alcoholic spirits that help make a mean mocktail.
Lyre’s range of non-alcoholic spirits promises absentee revellers to remain clear-headed, while also guaranteeing a hangover-free post-night-out wake-up. The reimagined takes on classic cocktail ingredients capture the taste of traditional spirits by using all-natural essences, extracts and distillates from all around the world – just without the added element of alcohol.
The range of tipples is as wide as it is tasty, encouraging sippers to replace a portion of the hard stuff to make a low-alcohol mix, or to completely remake classic favourites as a non-alcoholic option. For the gin and tonic aficionados there’s Dry London Spirit, crafted to capture the essence of a classic gin, with notes of juniper, citrus and pepper berry. Those who lean towards brown spirits can indulge in flavours of vanilla and toasted nuts with American Malt or there’s even a booze-free rendition of the green fairy herself – Absinthe, with the added assurance of no hallucinogenic effects.
