One cocktail sans alcohol, please!

It’s the weekend and you’re out with your friends to grab some drinks. And while you enjoy a cocktail every now and then, sometimes you just need something without the alcohol.

Luckily, more and more bars and restaurants have been catching up to this new wave of drinking and have created non-alcoholic beverages that are just as exciting and have the complexity of a cocktail, and most especially not just as an afterthought.

This list proves that despite sans alcohol mocktails have a place in any restaurant or bar and can be enjoyed and are as refreshing as any cocktail. Here are 5 bars and restaurants that serve the best mocktails in the metro.

Adding a layer of sophistication, they offer Filipino tapas (an array of elevated favorites such as pork cracklings, lengua, tenga and kambing) and amazing Filipino-themed cocktails like Gayuma ng Paraiso, Anting Anting ni Malvar, Agimat ng Sawi, and more!
