REVIEW: "Drinks Kitchen Aperitifs? Delicious Cool Ambrosia!"

“These beautifully and sustainably packaged bottles each deliver their own unique grown-up flavour experience.  Orange Cinchona is my non-alcoholic amber nectar; made long with sparkling water, it’s refreshingly satisfying with layers of flavour so unusual yet moreish, it’s hard to resist a second. Spiced Rhubarb & tonic with ice and a slice is refined sophistication and with notes of aromatic juniper, it’s hard to believe its not a G&T.  Herb Verde with Mediterranean tonic is the taste of holidays for me.  A cool glass of this immediately transports me to a beach-side bar in the Balearics – just heavenly.

Do yourself a flavour favour and give Drinks Kitchen a try”.

“We have been offering DK non-alcoholic aperitif in our restaurant for over 6 months now and our customers love it. It offers something a little bit different and special to our non-drinking customers. There is something for everyone in terms of flavour. The sweet Rhubarb, The bitter Orange and the Green herb. In their unusual ceramic bottles they look great too!”

Caroline @ Chefs Table


“I was introduced to this non-alcoholic drink at a festival and fell in love with the design of the bottle, so different to so many on the market already. Then I tried the product and the passion from Alli was obvious and it tastes great! I’ve had it on my back bar for some time now and it sells really well.”

Mary Galer, Miller of Mansfield, Goring


“We have tried all 3 of the non-alcoholic aperitifs and can highly recommend them all.  They were fabulous as an early evening drink, an alternative to the ‘gin & tonic’ and so delicious that it felt like a real treat. We enjoyed ours with sparkling water, this allowed the flavours of the aperitif to shine through.

My absolute favourite is the Orange Cinchona – I’m such a Negroni fan, it really has that vibe and my partner loved the Herb Verde which has a fresh and herby G&T taste”.

Drinks Kitchen Aperitif are something special for you to enjoy without alcohol. The recipes use distillates and extracts from fruits, herbs, spices & bitters blended to make a drinks kitchen aperitif packed with flavour.
The goal is delicious flavours from beginning to end. Handmade by Alli in Weston Super Mare, Somerset.

"These drinks help me make that transition from work to relaxing in the evening. In the past, I would have a glass of wine but I really wanted to cut down and change that habit because I felt my alcohol consumption was unhealthy." Alli.

New customers ask whether or not it's a Non Alcoholic Gin or Spirit.  How you use it is similar but you can just use sparkling water for your mixer as it's  packed with flavour and perfectly balanced without the need for tonic - but of-course, mix to suit your preference.

Well this was another lovely email I had a few days ago. Dr V orders Orange Cinchona regularly from me but she tried Grapefruit Piquante from the 1st batch and it’s her new favourite ❤️ 
I am making more Grapefruit this week so it will be back in stock on the weekend.

You’ll be needing to keep hydrated this week so it might as well be with something tasty 😋 
Free Delivery 📦 - check out the bundle deal online.
I’ve got a big production week on and the smalls will be back in stock by the weekend too.

It was a lovely day @exeterfestival_uk 
Well done to @exeterbarco for organising such a great event.
I’m not sure how I managed to take this picture of my gazebo and the sky but it made me laugh. At least it’s not my Home Screen for a change - I’ve got about 1000 of those in my picture library 🤪

I’m here @exeterfestival_uk 
They are also selling @drinks_kitchen at the bar!
So looking forward to seeing you.
It’s a beautiful day and just look at the weather this coming weekend 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞
Pour yourself a glass of summer with DK Herb Verde 🌿🌿 
Mint, Rosemary, Gentian and Thyme give you a super fresh tasting non-alcoholic apero.
A beautiful day @draytonmanor Hotel this week with @thecressco
Great bunch of brands for their Christmas brochure. 🌞🎄🌞🎄🌞🎄
Some new brand inspiration for you:
This popped into my inbox today and made me so happy! I just had to share. 
Sometimes, it feels like a madness starting your own business but this kind of feedback makes you feel full of joy 🥹 and that it’s totally worth it.
Thank you HJ.

I have my first wholesale customer @thecressco and today I was at their Christmas 🎄 2023 roadshow meeting new potential customers who can stock from August/September. I was so excited to see my range in their brochure! It feels like my non-alcoholic babies are growing up and may be heading out without their mum. Okay, that may sound weird! 
Met some lovely people today from some fabulous delis and farmshops who I hope decide to stock! Plus my neighbours @popcornshed @belvoirfarm_uk @mrfilberts 
How about a lovely glass of Grapefruit Piquante?
My new limited edition is proving to be super popular.
Sour grapefruit is blended with Mint, Rosemary & Chilli - its ZING in a glass and perfect for a sunny 🌞 day glass of something special.
Cheers 👁️

Some incredible options down @alcesterfoodfestival Lloyds bank end. Get yourself down here! 

Which non-alcoholic aperitif would you choose?
Sweet, sour, bitter, fresh?
I love all of them depending on my mood and what I’m having alongside - they pair beautifully with different dishes. Herb Verde with Chicken Larb is a thing of wonder!
But my personal favourite is Orange Cinchona 🍊 I naturally prefer less sweet and I love bitter flavours - perhaps my micro biome loves it?

New Customer ❤️ I popped in to meet Charlie and his super friendly team at The Inn at Yanleigh. It’s on the main A38 into Bristol and it’s always busy.
It’s a hotel and restaurant and the main restaurant is on the second floor with amazing views over the countryside.  The menu has a great range of classic dishes and vegan, veggie options plus a delicious selection of sundaes - who doesn’t love a sundae - my choice crunchie honeycomb sundae 😋
Now you can choose from Spiced Rhubarb, Orange Cinchona or Grapefruit Piquante non-alcoholic apero to go with your meal.
Non-alcoholic, packed with botanical loveliness. 

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!  

Create amazing non-alcoholic spritz with the Drinks Kitchen Aperitif.  Just pour a 25ml serve into a glass and top with up to 175ml of sparkling water, tonic or soda.  If you want to serve up some nibbles alongside then why not try the focaccia recipe
and serve for dipping with some balsamic and olive oil.

By enjoying a non-alcoholic aperitif, we can make it an regular occurrence and drive home safely.
