That’s what makes a brand like Seedlip an exciting addition to the bar cart—the nonalcoholic distilled spirits bring nuance to nonalcoholic cocktails. We created three delicious drinks with Seedlip: a Ginger Turmeric Sour (complete with plant-based aquafaba foam top), a Spiced Coffee and Tonic, and a Dirty MartiNO with Rosemary.
