There has been a growing trend in zero-alcohol drinks in recent years. Beer was first to this trend, then bars across America started offering “mocktails,” which are alcohol-free cocktails.
Now, Monday Whiskey offers a zero-alcohol whiskey. Labeled as a gluten free, sugar free, vegan whiskey, Monday is created from their distillery in San Diego, CA. Monday also offers an alcohol-free gin that proudly states that it has no carbs and is allergen-free. Why alcohol-free?:
A cultural shift is underway – a mindset toward self care, staying sharp, and living life withoutcompromise. This is not a trend – this is a movement that refuses to choose between good health andgreat taste.– Monday
But is it really alcohol-free? According to their website, “Yes, we contain between 0.3-0.5% ABV. This is on par with the alcohol content found in a ripe banana, about 2-3x less than the bun on a typical burger, and up to 7x less alcohol than the soy sauce on your poke bowl. Who knew, right?”
The website also offers a series of drink recipes, including the “Cheeky Cherry-Tini” a “Non-alcoholic Gimlet” and the, “Atomic Mary.”
