Ritual's Mexican Hot Chocolate

Posted by Sloane Sweitzer

There’s nothing like a warm, decadent beverage around the holidays. This riff on the Mexican Hot Chocolate is deeply aromatic, rich and soul-nourishing. Ritual gives this a booze-free “spike” by using their non-alcoholic whiskey alternative instead of whiskey. This cup of cheer will warm you right up after a winter wonderland walk or an afternoon getting that outdoor light display just right.

Ritual's Whiskey Smash

Posted by Sloane Sweitzer

The classic Whiskey Smash first appeared in Jerry Thomas’s Bartender’s Guide in 1887. It’s similar to a mint julep, with citrus and a bit less fuss over the presentation. The classic is made with lemon, but you can add your choice of citrus to make it your own. And don’t be shy with the muddling. More smash equals more flavor. Cheers!

Ritual's Bloody Maria

Posted by Sloane Sweitzer

The tequila-based version of a Bloody Mary takes inspiration from the original vodka or gin bloody with a south-of-the-border flair. For this non-alc version featuring Ritual's Tequila Alternative, we substitute the traditional Tabasco and lemon for Tapatio and lime. Garnish with roasted jalapeno, chorizo, escabeche, even a section of a quesadilla if you like, and you have yourself a meal in (and on) a glass.

Ritual's Bourbon Champagne Mocktail

Posted by Sloane Sweitzer

By most accounts the Bourbon Champagne Cocktail was born at the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky – yes, the famous Seelbach hotel from the Great Gatsby. Our non-alc version uses Ritual's Whiskey Alternative in place of bourbon, Hill Street Brut in place of champagne, Triple Sexy in place of triple sec. But go ahead and leave any of those in to make it a low abv version of the classic. Cheers!
