Designated driver? Taking part in Dry January or going Sober for October? Or do you just like a fancy drink? Then this is the list for you! Sometimes, all you want is the delicious taste of a cocktail, without the hangover (or the price!). Mocktails are the perfect solution, often tasting just as good, if not better than the real thing. Newcastle is home to loads of cocktail bars, and most of them do a fantastic mocktail. So we've pulled together a list of some of our favourites, so you know where to start!
Pleased to Meet you
Pleased To Meet You has a fantastic cocktail menu, and it has a mocktail menu to match! They have drinks that are so delicious we just can't resist, with loads of creative combinations that guarantee you something a bit special. Their EspressNo Martini is dark, delicious and one of our faves! Whether you're looking at after work drinks or a late night with the girls, it's the perfect spot!
Pitcher and Piano
This bar has some stunning views of the Quayside, so it's the perfect spot to get a 'gram of your totally photogenic mocktail! The Pretty in Peach mocktail tastes like summer in a glass, and the Temperance pitcher is perfect for sharing ☀️ Pitcher and Piano also get serious bonus points for having Seedlip behind the bar - the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit. With 2 different flavours (Garden and Spice) you can try one of the Pitcher and Piano's signature serves, or one of their carefully crafted Seedlip mocktails.
Revolucion de Cuba
Yes, Revolucion de Cuba is known for doing some fantastic rum cocktails, but they also make some incredible alcohol free versions for all you designated drivers! If you usually can't get enough of a good mojito, then try their Cherry and Cranberry version, it's just as good as the real thing. And if you're looking for a little fizz, the Lavender Lemonade is sure to be right up your street!
