Where to Get Great Mocktails in New York City

by Hannah Warne on Jan 30, 2018 in Roundups

 
New year, new you—right? For those who might want to scale back on alcohol this year, we’ve got you covered. In a city bursting with craft cocktail bars and innovative connections, it’s no surprise that there are just as many mocktails to match. Check out these places for the best booze-free beverages.

Jajaja
At this hip vegan Mexican joint, most of their tequila-driven cocktails can be made sans alcohol. Four of their six cocktails can be made as mocktails, but the real star is the Matcha y Coconut concoction that has a creamy consistency with earthy undertones and a sharp citrus finish. (162 E Broadway; 646-883-5453)

The NoMad Bar
Dark wood, a golden glow and double height ceilings all add to the ambiance of the NoMad Bar, that has an elevated casual menu has a similar feel to that at Eleven Madison Park—founder Daniel Humm and Will Guidara's other banner establishment. Noted on the menu as “soft cocktails,” their mocktail offerings range from a homemade ginger ale to unusual creations like the Peter Piper made of pineapple, black pepper, pickled passion fruit and lime. (10 W 28th St.; 212-796-1500)

Carmine’s
With an outpost in both Times Square and the Upper West Side, this traditional Italian spot offers several mocktails on their recently revamped cocktail menu. Crafted with both lunch get-togethers and children diners in mind, these are also the perfect options for those laying off alcohol. Try the Bitter Sicilian that features pomegranate syrup, lemon, lime, bitters and soda. (2450 Broadway; 212-362-2200; 200 W 44th St.; 212-221-3800)

Saxon + Parole
The rustic-chic ambiance of this East Village haunt will instantly add it to your list of go-to spots. Just because it’s dry January, doesn’t mean you need to forgo your favorites. They have several non-alcoholic cocktails on the menu—perfect for variety and satisfying that order-a-fancy-drink craving until February 1 rolls around. (316 Bowery; 212-254-0350)
