Once upon a time, London’s non-alcoholic drink options consisted of leftover mixers and a paper umbrella – if you were lucky. Not any more. The recently launched 7Up Mojito Free, ideally served over ice with lemon, lime and handful of mint, is proof that times, they are a-changin'. And 7Up Free are not the only ones clocking onto alcohol-free drinking. We’ve picked the city’s finest concoctions so you can savour the last of the summer – minus the hangover.
Virgin Bombay Colada at Dishoom
The classic pineapple and coconut recipe gets the Bombay treatment – with a dash of chai syrup, lime juice and a sprinkle of coriander, you’ll forget that rum ever existed.
Bartender's Choice at Nightjar
Choose from a mind-boggling list of flavours including non-alcoholic galangal beer, kombucha and baobab and Nightjar’s whizzy mixology team will whip up a bespoke mocktail in no time.
Pomegranate Spritzer at Berber & Q Shawarma Bar
This punchy brew is the perfect way to wash down Berber & Q’s grill menu. And it comes in a dainty champagne bowl so you’ll feel like you’re drinking. Even though you’re not.
Virgin Mary at Bubbledogs
Ideal hair-of-the-dog combo: a hot dog laden with drool-worthy toppings and a zingy virgin bloody mary – mixed by the likes of Talented Mr Fox Matt Whiley and the team at Dandelyan.
Peru Cooler at Ceviche Old St
Ceviche Old St is buzzy enough without the booze. Order the Peru Cooler, an eye-popping fuschia blend of guanabana juice, pink ginger cordial, maca and blood orange soda. A five-star holiday in a glass, basically.
