Delicious and New Zero-Proof Cocktails

The new year signals new beginnings, and it’s the perfect time to jumpstart your wellness journey. Perhaps that’s why Dry January–choosing to give up alcohol for the first month of the year–has become so popular. It’s also a great opportunity for a detox, after the indulgences of the holidays!

Dr. Jen Ashton, ABC Chief Medical Correspondent and author of The Self-Care Solution, is a five-year veteran of Dry January, and she looks at it as “a wellness experiment.” “It’s a way to see how you feel,” she says. “Taking a break from alcohol can improve sleep, make your skin look better and you may even drop a few pounds.”

If you don’t feel like going cold turkey, no pressure. Perhaps set an intention to aim for a better balance between cocktails and mocktails. Our food and beverage team has just launched six delicious new mocktails ($16) in our Lobby Lounge and you will want to try them all! Bring a few friends and organize your own Dry January tasting. Of course, these mix beautifully with a splash of vodka, rum, tequila or gin (+ $6)!

Here is our brand-new Mocktail Menu, from sweet to savory:

The warming Xpress Train is our take on the Espresso Martini, with cardamom, allspice, house-made vanilla and chocolate syrup and a touch of frothy Cola to make it bubbly.

The Rhubarb Spritz, inspired by the classic Aperol Spritz, is infused with Dhos Bittersweet Rhubarb and tangy Seedlip citrus, topped with soda water and garnished with orange.

Spice & Everything Nice is a twist on the spicy margarita, with muddled jalapenos and rosemary, Seedlip Herbal, a dash of pineapple and lemon juice and a Tajin rim.

The Afternoon Refresher, a Mojito and Eastside hybrid, features refreshing cucumber and mint, Seedlip Herbal, lime juice and Cucumber Tonic.

The Garden Party–a zero-proof version of our iconic Miramar cocktail–leans into Seedlip Herbal, Hibiscus syrup and fresh rosemary from the garden.

Stir It Up!

Next to chefs, the new superstars of the culinary world are mixologists. And it makes sense. A modern-day mixologist, like a great chef, has a sophisticated palette, an eye for interesting ingredients and a talent for pulling them together and making a cocktail menu sparkle.
