Beat the summer heat by sipping on smooth mocktails with fresh fruit juices, syrups, and fresh herbs.
What are mocktails? Well, they are all the delicious goodness of cocktails without one ingredient – alcohol. Whether you want to beat the bloat this summer or simply enjoy a refreshing cocktail without the tang of alcohol, we’ve got you covered.
Here’s where to find mocktails in the Hudson Valley:
Grazin’ is the perfect spot for a laid-back farm-to-table experience in the Hudson Valley. Everything comes from the Grazin‘ Angus Acres (GAA), a large-pastured farm on which the animals roam free, or from local farms a few miles away. Its classic, the Grazin’ burger, is a must-try, as are the freshly made salads (all the vegetables are picked fresh that morning). Unsurprisingly, the mocktails here are not to be missed. All the syrups for the mocktails are homemade (because, of course). The star mocktail is the color-changing Butterfly Pea Lemonade, but the eatery offers an array of mocktails such as the Sunset or a pomegranate sour.
Look no further than Huckleberry in New Paltz to find something for everyone. This cozy location offers delicious mocktails such as the Lavender-Ade, Yellow Jacket (featuring citrusy flavors), and Little Surfer Girl (flavors of mango, lime, and ginger). In addition, the venue dishes up small and large plates that are perfect for any appetite. Enjoy the outdoor seating (complete with a fire pit) with friends by your side and a mocktail in hand as you celebrate summertime in the Hudson Valley.
