Soft, non-alcoholic drink Thick, hot and sticky summer days make us go in search of refreshing drinks, air conditioners, and pools. We can’t help you with the latter two, but we can with the former, which is why we’ve rounded up our favorite refreshing drinks to cool off the hot flash of summer. Although the most frequent phrase this time of year should be “I’m going to drink a cold beer right now,” we’re betting on this list of non-alcoholic drinks, which have something special and are a far cry from the artificially sugary sodas we use little good.
Demand for this type of beverage is growing from consumers who claim it for health reasons or convictions, and it is increasingly common – albeit little by little – to see interesting non-alcoholic drinks in stores, bars and restaurants. We review juices, soft drinks, non-alcoholic beer and kombucha.
Fresh vegan fruit and vegetable juice
Journalist Lakshmi Aguirre doesn’t consider herself a juicy person, “Fruit has to be chewed, which is how I like to drink it,” she admits, so I’m taking this Veguicia smoothie recommendation very seriously. “In celebration of the recent frozen talks organized by Fernando and Angeline della Sera in Logroño, a green concoction came into my hand and I am addicted to it. It contains apple, orange, spinach, cucumber, celery, ginger, and mint (no water, no sugar) and is like having a springtime drink,” she says. Beetroot is their second favorite, and they also have other blends and single fruit juices.. This family business from La Rioja has patented a form of natural preservation in which they avoid pasteurization, adding chemicals to the juice and subjecting it to high pressure to enhance preservation. “Of course, it lasts 10 days in the fridge (if you haven’t drunk it before),” says Lakshmi. price: Consult points of sale.
Non-alcoholic soft drink Coconut juice concentrate
Continuing the line of smoothies, we go for the exotic on the recommendation of Jordi Luque. Although he admits that his drink of choice is Negroni, which is in the “non-alcoholic” category, he stuck to Foco’s coconut juice. “I really like the regular version, coconut water sweetened with bits of pulp, but the toasted coconut version is driving me crazy, hard to find, with a smoky touch that gives depth,” he explains. price: From 1.75 euros.
Non-alcoholic soft drink Zuminio apples
My contribution to this list of recommendations is Zumiño apple juice. It is very fresh and aromatic and perfectly balanced between acid and sweet. It has absolutely nothing to do with any artificial apple juice from concentrate, the kind that makes you sick just by looking at it. Although their name already gives clues, these juices are made with apples grown in Baixo Miño (Galicia) in an ecological and sustainable way. They are cold pressed, they are vegetarian and they have other juices that blend different ingredients. Plus: designing everything they do drives me crazy. price: From three euros for 750 ml.
Soft drinks and sparkling water
Non-alcoholic soft drink Le Tribute Tonic
“Soft drinks are as important to me as bullfights or the masses, but if I had to save one, I’d probably stick with the tonic,” says Miquel Lopez Ituriaga. Le Tribute, from MG Distilleries, is the best tasting version I’ve recently tasted: “not at all satiated and over-sour and bitter, and with a steady bubble.” It’s made with natural quinine from Ecuador – the ingredient that gives the stimulant its bitter taste – and the herb lemon , which is something that, according to Michael, “may seem like an important or silly thing depending on your gourmet level. The truth is, it tastes less artificial and more fun than other brands, and you don’t have to smear it with gin to enjoy it.” price: From 1.65 per 200 ml.
Sugar Free Ginger Soda
Mònica Escudero says: “Sparkling water, apple juice, lemon and ginger are the ingredients for this soft drink whose bubbles and spicy touch at the end taste like blessed glory when the heat catches on.” Whole Earth is an English company that produces various organic products, so the ingredients for this soft drink come from crops according to its philosophy. Mònica warns that “he says it has no added sugar, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t: cider gives it a go, so it’s a full-flavored soft drink, to drink from time to time.” price: From 1.75 per 330 ml.
Non-alcoholic soft drink Chinotto Tomarchio
In a story that could have come from The Country Where the Lemon Tree Blooms By Helena Attlee, Jorge Guitián tells his story with Chinotto soda. “I discovered Italian myrrh on a trip to Tuscany, many years ago, when I found a whole bunch to dive in: bitter orange, red orange, green mandarin, citron, something called Sabuma It is made of chaff. Rhubarb root. And the chinotto . It is a drink made from extract Kinotto Pronounced “Kinoto” – it is a citrus fruit that resembles a small orange, which is close to a bitter orange and is reminiscent of an orange. “If it is well made, it chinotto drinkThey have an interesting balance between sweet and bitter, they are very aromatic and refreshing. The Tomarchio brand, which has been manufactured in Catania since the end of the 19th century, is one of the most well-known and, among those I have tried, one of those that abuse the sweetest few. I’m not a big fan of soft drinks, but if an exception is to be made, it’s best with a centuries-old product with an unusual flavor.” price: 1.90 per 250 ml.
Vichy Catalan sparkling mineral water
“A little bottle of Vichy Catalán – in addition to making me feel like a very classy lady – saved me from many food hangovers; Especially accompanied by some pickles and some deaths from dehydration,” says Claudia Polo, who is also a self-proclaimed subscriber of sparkling water. “I love it because I can order it anywhere and they always have it available,” she adds, “and if I buy it to drink at home, I combine it with other ingredients like a little crushed basil and a squeeze of lemon, which is red collie price: From 0.90 for a 330ml can.
Non-alcoholic beer and ginger ale
Thomas Henry Ginger Beer
“If you don’t like traditional non-alcoholic beer, carbonated soft drinks, or sugary industrial juices (which God knows why even in hospitals), finding discreet, tasty drinks in a Spanish bar becomes an illusion above that of Indiana Jones and the Cup,” As David Remartinez says. Thus, “the list of unconscious drinks that make you slur is very small, and also has more expensive brands than Fanta or a 0’0 bottle,” he says. His menu begins with Thomas Henry’s Ginger Beer – which despite calling it a non-alcoholic beer – was created by bartenders The experts in Berlin. “It’s spicy and citrusy, and with every sip my mouth delights better than Bad resort mojito,”He confessed. price : from 4.81 EUR for a pack of 4 bottles of 200 ml.
IPA sin alcohol do not worry
On its menu, Remartinez also includes a handcrafted beer, No Worries, from Norwegian brewery Lervig. “A competent IPA, with a very well-spoken name and a name I always use on the can, because the design is so cool,” he says. In the brand’s No Worries line, there are also other beers that blend different ingredients. They are not easy to find but they are usually found in specialty stores and online stores. price: From € 2.20 for a can of 330 ml.
Triple Zero Amber Beer
“I’m good at drinking beer,” Claudia Polo says. Ambar’s latest launch is innovative and goes beyond zero alcohol because it also contains zero sugar and zero carbon dioxide (emissions neutral). As the brand itself explains, all sugar is converted into alcohol by the action of yeasts and all alcohol is removed using technology from the final product. So we can say that it is good to take care of your health and also, even if it is little, the health of the planet. “It’s fairly fun, light, and you hardly notice the difference with the regular one,” Claudia explains. price: From 1.25 euros for a bottle of 330 ml.
Kombucha love of mandarin, turmeric and pepper
“While most of what they sell us kombucha on YouTube has never seen fermentation, this drink is based on filtered water, whole cane sugar, different types of tea, and the three ingredients that give it a great aroma,” says Monica Escudero. They make it at the Catalan company LOV’s brewing and also make others with other ingredients – as well as making limited editions with seasonal ingredients. Mònica concludes, “I discovered it in Jena Palmsina and I think it’s a pity that it’s not in more places because it goes with food, and not just as a soda to drink on its own.” price: From three euros for a bottle of 330 ml.
Lemon and ginger kombucha
Anna Mayer told me, “I resisted trying kombucha for so long because it seemed like just another unnecessary fad, until I drank one at their own restaurant.” Since then he has tried different brands and already has three favourites, including Komvida. “I think they were among the first to go to the market, and the fact that they did it from Badajoz province makes me like them better because starting a business in the provinces can be less easy than in the larger centers,” Anna says. His favorite: ginger and lemon, although apple and cinnamon follow closely. He describes it as “a little pungent, a little spicy and very refreshing. It does not contain carbon dioxide or any type of added sugar or sweetener (except as necessary for fermentation).” price:From € 2.25 a bottle of 330 ml.
