The rise of non-alcoholic drinks in Des Moines and beyond
If you're looking for a non-alcoholic beverage beyond a diet coke or seltzer, don't worry. The bartenders have got you.
Driving the news: There's a rise in bar-goers who want to skip the hangover, but still crave a tasty cocktail — and bars in Des Moines and across the country are living up to the demand.
- As Esquire puts it, we're witnessing "the unstoppable rise of (actually good) no- and low-alcohol drinks."
Take, for example, the Secret Spritz from Secret Admirer in Des Moines.
- It's an interesting cocktail with turmeric, yellow bell pepper, orange zest and CO2 fizz ($7).
What they're saying: "They've worked on those cocktails just as much as they have for any of our house cocktails on our menus," said Nick Tillinghast, a partner in Des Moines Does Things, the hospitality group behind the bar.
Plus: You're not limited to just this no-booze option. Secret Admirer has several other offerings on its spirit-free list.
