Mocktails™, the award-winning ready-to-drink alcohol-free cocktails launched its brand new nitro-charged slim cans. And we loved them!

This new canned format provides a convenient and delicious way to now enjoy Mocktails on the go. The cans are non-carbonated but contain a clever widget that adds a visual and aromatic experience on popping the can open – much like the effect achieved after a cocktail shake.

Each of the four Mocktails flavours are 100% natural, sustainable, and ethically sourced. They’re also vegan, gluten free, low in sugar and calories, and, of course, the canned packaging is 100% recyclable too.


Try Mockarita: A classic with a twist that will take you straight to the beach, Mockapolitan: Subtle and sophisticated, but not too sweet, Mockscow Mule: Sicilian & Argentinian lemons create the most refreshing of tastes, Sansgria: The French, Italian & Spanish wine grapes will transport you to Sevilla!


Mocktails™ cans are now available at www.drinkmocktails.co.uk priced at £26.99 for a pack of 12 x 200ml cans.

Perfect for Two (but we won't judge you if you buy it for one)
