The best alcohol-free alternatives to Aperol Spritz:

1. Spritzish from Ish Sprits

We love the convenience of this canned drink, which makes a great non-alcoholic option for drinks in the park. Ish gets its authentic aperol flavour from French gentian root, a common drinks flavouring for bitters. Mixed together with orange, lemon and mandarins and you’ve got the perfect summer drink. What sets this one apart from the others is its subtly fiery flavour, given by its distilling process using shells from chilli seeds. Talk about zing! 


2. Italian Spritz from Lyre’s

A beautiful bottle worth showing off, this non-alcoholic alternative to aperol carries orange as its base flavour, but with the sharp tang of rhubarb cutting through. Pour a single measure into a large glass topped with soda or tonic water for a refreshing after work drink. 


3. Italian Spritz from Highball

Highball are known for their alcohol-free cocktail mixes, conveniently sold in ready to drink bottles, and they’ve poured their knowledge into making an alternative to the traditional Italian drink. The blend of bitters and orange peel is mixed with sparkling water. Highball describes this tipple as “just like being in Venice but without the hangover.” Sounds good to us!


4. Bittersweet Non-alcoholic Aperitif from Wilfred’s

18 months and over 100 recipes later, this Bittersweet Non-alcoholic Aperitif was created, and it was certainly worth the wait. It’s a complex mix of rosemary, rhubarb and clove for a refreshing drink with serious depth. What’s missing? Just booze, and we’re fine with that. Add tonic water and plenty of ice for a delicious non-alcoholic option. One to keep on standby to impress guests! 


5. Bitter Aperitif from Crodino

A labour of love, the production process of this Italian aperitivo is lengthy, mixing botanicals and leaving it to stand for up to six months, resulting in a full-bodied flavour with every sip. If you like your non-alcoholic drink to be on the spicy, earthy side, this one’s for you – Crodino is infused with spices, woods, roots and herbs.
