FAQs

What are tips on how to make mocktails better?

First, it's all in the glassware. Single use plastic cups are out — instead, serve up in your finest looking spirit & cocktail glasses to really elevate your home bar experience. We recommend champagne flutes for anything bubbly, and coupe-style glasses for your margaritas.

Second, garnish to your heart's content! There's nothing like generously applying some passionfruit sugar or special salt around the rim of your glass to make the drink go from 0 to 100, just like that. For toppings, Mr. Consistent's wide range of cocktail garnishes can take you far, such as the Dried Mandarin slices to go over your summery drinks. If all else fails, mint leaves or a slice/squeeze of citrus (such as lemon or lime) can really do the trick.
