At withinUs, we add the FUN in Functional.
Try this delicious functional mocktail at your next social gathering. Mocktails, or non-alcoholic cocktails are growing in popularity over the last few years.
One of the main reasons for the rise of mocktails is the increasing focus on health and wellness. As people adopt a healthier lifestyles they are choosing to limit or abstain from alcohol altogether. At withinUs, we also see the benefit of having non-alcoholic beverages, but that also provides a function (TruMarine Collagen, healthy fats from organic coconut milk etc) vs a high in sugar "mocktail" that is mostly juice.
Why should you offer functional mocktails at your next holiday gathering?
- Many people are focussing on health & wellness
- Designated Drivers
- Creative Flavours
As more people educate themselves and prioritize health and wellness, functional mocktails will grow in popularity, offering a delicious and nutritious alternative to traditional cocktails.
