At the sound of the words “promotion”, “wedding”, or even an enthusiastic “yay!”, thoughts of sparkling wine and clinking glasses full of colourful cocktails start swimming in all of our heads. Even when you type “celebration” into your phone, it suggests you use the champagne emoji to demonstrate your festive mood.
Thankfully, we have the finest range of impossibly crafted, perfectly fancy non-alcoholic drinks to help you celebrate those golden moments and still feel in full vim and vigour the next morning. Here are our top ten non-alcoholic drinks for celebrations.
There’s something about the bubbles of sparkling wine that make everything that little bit more special. Perhaps it’s their temporary nature; they’re there for a second, and then they’re gone, reminding us to savour the moment along with the exquisite flavour and soft, pear aromatics. Lyre’s Classico alcohol-free Prosecco is the queen of fancy non-alcoholic drinks.
Lyre’s Amalfi Spritz
Non-alcoholic drinks for parties never looked so good. Lyre’s Italian Spritz seamlessly takes the place of the classic Italian bitter orange spirit in a spritz and makes for a conscious cocktail even more delicious than the original. Tasting like sunshine in a glass and leaving you feeling just as refreshed and on top of the world the next day, Lyre’s Non-alcoholic Amalfi Spritz will transport you directly to a deck chair on the banks of Lake Como, calling out “Saluti” as you clink glasses with George Clooney.
Old Cuban Mocktail
If you’re in the mood for a celebration that includes a lot of salsa dancing and some classic pastel-coloured Model T Fords, then the Old Cuban Mocktail is your drink, hombre! Made from Lyre’s White Cane Spirit, Lyre’s Classico, a dash of bitters, lime and sugar syrup, garnished with mint; your celebration will go from a regular night to a Havana night, in no time flat.
Lyre’s Festival Spritz
To celebrate the return of festivals, outdoor gatherings, and being with your favourite people, you need two things: a flashy outfit that includes some sort of diamonte and spandex combination and a drink that’s as full of flavour and fizz as the festival. Enter Lyre’s Festival Spritz. Made up of Lyre’s London Dry and Apéritif Dry and chock full of fruit and bubbles, our festival spritz will set you up for a festival or outing which is (for once) impossible to forget!
Maple Coffee Cocktail
When the weather outside is frightful, but the celebration inside is delightful, then there’s only one way to go… Lyre’s Maple Coffee Cocktail. Made to be drunk contemplatively by the fire while rugged up in a chunky Christmas themed sweater (even if it’s just for Christmas in July), Lyre’s non-alcoholic Maple Coffee Cocktail goes to show fancy non-alcoholic drinks can be consumed year-round, hot or cold. Featuring Lyre’s American Malt, some hot brewed coffee, maple syrup and whipped cream, this conscious cocktail will warm not only your toes but the cockles of your heart too.
Lyre’s Pleased As Punch
Non-alcoholic drinks for parties bring people together, not just physically as they meet at the proverbial water cooler of the punch bowl to scoop and gossip, but also with the communal experience of feeling refreshed and not riddled with hangxiety the following day. Punch is all about its festive appearance and the frivolity it exudes. And nothing says party, fun and “huzzah” quite like a big bowl Lyre’s Pleased As Punch Mocktail; the perfect marriage of earl grey tea, Lyre’s American Malt, butter pecan syrup, lemon juice and a drop of bitters, garnished decadently with thyme, fresh cranberries, star anise.
Lyre’s Rosa Negroni
Celebrations don’t all happen under raining confetti and shining garlands. Some soirees are more low-key, taking place in dimly lit rooms, discussing your luck on the stock market and quietly sharing words of encouragement; non-alcoholic drinks for parties need to suit the mood. Nothing says “celebrating with associates” like Lyre’s Rosa Negroni, a classic negroni with a fragrant coastal twist (and a conscious cocktail which lets you celebrate late into the night and embrace the sunshine come morning).
Lyre’s Passionstar Martini
One of the best things about non-alcoholic drinks for parties is that there’s no party they can’t attend, including a baby shower. Lyre’s Passionstar Martini is an elegant and festive way to raise a glass at any occasion and is packed full of passionfruit, vanilla, lime, Lyre’s Classico in place of Prosecco and Lyre’s Dry London Spirit, oh baby!
Lyre’s Bianco Spritz Pitcher
The arrival of the Summer sun is something worth celebrating. Whether you’re relaxing beneath a striped parasol on the beach in Cannes, or you’re making do beside your friend’s above ground pool, the siren song of ice jangling in a pitcher full of a spritz is hard to ignore. Even more so when your pitcher’s filled with non-alcoholic drinks for celebrations which won't leave you feeling less celebratory and more in need of a nap later in the afternoon. Featuring Lyre’s Triple Sec and Aperitif Dry, Lyre’s Bianco Spritz Pitcheris the pitcher perfect drink for a summer celebration.
Lyre’s Coffee Affogato
Nothing helps prolong a night of superb food and fancy non-alcoholic drinks than a non-alcoholic cocktail which is a little bit dessert and a little bit of the pep you need to keep celebrating into the night. Lyre’s Coffee Affogato is just that; decadent and rich with that coffee kick to keep you going into the early hours.
