Bitters and soda is the perfect drink for when you want something that feels sophisticated and tastes like a cocktail, but doesn't have any alcohol or require any work to make.
Botanical and refreshing, bitters and soda is a great change of pace from your typical flavored sparkling waters. We drink it throughout the day, but because of the digestive qualities of bitters, it's also beneficial immediately before or after a meal (or the next morning after one too many drinks).
Having guests over and not sure what to make for the people who don't drink alcohol? Bitters and soda is a terrific, hassle-free option. For a slightly more involved, but still very easy-to-make cocktail, check out our recipe for Lemon, Lime, and Bitters.
All The Bitter contains 0.0% ABV, but making this drink with "regular" bitters will result in a very low-alcohol drink.
Bitters and Soda
Non-Alcoholic Cocktail / Low-Alcohol / Zero Proof / Mocktail
Feels fancy but is so refreshing and easy to make. The quintessential bitters drink!
3-7 dashes of bitters (season to taste!)
8 ounces of sparkling water
Squeeze of lemon or lime (optional)
Add bitters to a highball glass with ice, and a squeeze of lemon or lime (optional).
Pour sparkling water to fill the glass, stir briefly to incorporate.
Any type of bitters can be used here! Try all 3 of our classic alcohol-free flavors, or our Lavender bitters. A squeeze of lemon or lime is also a nice addition. We love the New Orleans bitters with lime, Orange bitters with lemon, Aromatic with either, and Lavender with lemon!
Use as much or as little bitters as you prefer. 3-5 dashes in an 8-ounce glass is a good place to start, but you may find you prefer more or less depending on how strong a flavor you desire.
