treat yourself to crafted recipes full of flavour
We start with an idea, maybe from a recipe we have made from a cookery book, or it could be an ingredient we particularly love. We use distillates and extracts from fruits, herbs, spices & bitters which we blend to make a drinks recipe…in our kitchen!
The goal is delicious flavours from beginning to end.
The fragrance & flavour of Rhubarb gives big impact in this recipe followed by aromatic juniper and ginger. A gentle chilli heat warms on the finish – not overpowering but you know it’s there.
How to Serve
A 25ml measure of Spiced Rhubarb to 175ml of sparkling water, soda or tonic creates the perfect serve.
The aroma of fresh mint and herbs sing in our Herb Verde. The initial burst is of refreshing Mint together with the pea pod notes of Gentian, followed by more subtle herby notes of Rosemary & Thyme.
How to Serve
A 25ml measure of Herb Verde to 175ml of sparkling water, soda or tonic creates the perfect serve.
Gentle woody notes from Cinchona & fruity Orange are the initial flavours followed by more zesty peel and herbaceous notes of quassia & oregano. Orange Cinchona has a gentle bitter sweet finish.
How to Serve
A 25ml measure of Orange Cinchona to 175ml of sparkling water or soda creates the perfect serve.

GREENER & BETTER VALUE
We have concentrated our recipes so that a bottle makes 28 drinks. This means less packaging & better value.
We love our core recipes and hope you do too.
But, isn’t it great when you try something NEW and are wowed by a new experience & flavour?
Creating new & seasonal recipes is at the heart of what we are passionate about and we will release small batch limited edition recipes to welcome in each new season: March, June, September & December each year.
Our 1st Limited Edition will launch in September &
we are just working on the recipe now. Find out more by staying in touch here.
The Art of Aperitivo
In Italy, Aperitivo is so much more than just a drink, it’s an inherent part of the culture. Between 6-9pm, bars are packed with families and friends socialising and catching up for a few hours over a drink and with a light snack before heading off to dinner.
What a great way to start the evening! By enjoying a non-alcoholic aperitif, we can make it an regular occurrence and drive home safely.
I think after 2020, we are all going to appreciate spending time with those we love even more and what better way, than with a glass of our aperitif in your hand.

WHO ARE WE?
Drinks Kitchen is the start-up owned by friends Alli & Neil who create and hand-make non-alcoholic aperitif in Somerset.
With over 35 years expertise between them, developing new drinks and brands for other companies, they decided it’s time to do it for themselves.
We discovered and fell in love with our cinchona extract a few years ago when we were working on new flavours for tonic water. Cinchona, pronounced sing-koh-nuh, is a species of plants, mainly trees, native to the Andes of South America; the bark of some contains quinine.
Cooking has been a passion of mine since secondary school when I took home economics for one of my options and during those early teenage years, I had a few favourites recipes; cheese souffle, lemon meringue pie & donuts. Note the odd one out there? Where did cheese souffle come from? Even at 13, I had highfalutin ideas!
My friend Neil and I are starting a business making non-alcoholic drinks. We both wanted to have something grown up and full of flavour to drink on days when we are being good and not drinking wine. For me, that’s something I am trying to do more and more. As much as I love a massive glass of New Zealand sauvignon, it just doesn’t love me back the same anymore!
Neil and I have worked together creating drinks for other companies on and off, since around 2000. At first, we were just work colleagues. Then one day I had a run in with the Cleats on my new bike pedals and broke my arm. Lucky Neil got allocated the job of picking me up for work each day.
I think we first really bonded over S Club 7’s ‘Reach for the stars’ which we car danced to on the journey home from work.
