Three Spirit Elixirs: Non-Alcoholic “Spirits” That Taste Like The Real Thing

[1] Whether on the rocks or in cocktails, enjoy non-alcoholic Three Spirit elixirs as you would conventional spirits (photos #1, #2 and #3 © Three Spirit).

What if you want a cocktail, but can’t (or shouldn’t) drink? A group of plant scientists and bartenders have developed Three Spirit elixirs just for you. It’s our Top Pick Of The Week.

Sober evenings are more fun with this new line. It’s imported from the U.K., where it is now served at such esteemed watering holes as The Connaught Bar.

Mixologists are thrilled to have such great bases on which to build non-alcoholic cocktails. From on the rocks to smoked cocktails to fruity drinks, Three Spirit provides the base to build the cocktails you crave.

Recipes on the website include Three Spirit’s versions of the classics—Daiquiri, Cosmopolitan, Highball, Hot Toddy, Mulled Cider, Old Fashioned, Spritz—to new creations.

Three Spirit appeared at the Grammys, the Oscars, and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, where it won a double gold medal.

The line actually sold out in its U.S. debut.

Now, the three varieties are back in stock. Each has a complex flavor profile, but in brief:

  • Livener. An exotic, fiery elixir powered by energizig guayusa and schizandra berry. The flavor: vibrant berries, bright aromatics and heat (our personal favorite for on-the-rocks).
  • Social Elixir. Powerful plants, powerful flavors: bittersweet with a savory bite from cacao and green tea.
  • Nightcap. Lemon balm, relaxing valerian root and hops combine in mellow sips with woody hints.
    The drinks stimulate the palate, and actually make you feel happy.

    Do they really have any impact on the limbic system (the body’s system that controls feelings)?

    Ingredients like lion’s mane fungus have nootropic qualities, which can help to boost mental performance and lift moods by creating new neurons in the brain. (Unlike the wonderful Mayim Bialik, we are not neuroscientists.)

    Three Spirit elixirs are:

  • Non-alcoholic.
  • Grain free.
  • No artificial flavors or colors.
  • No added sweeteners.
  • Made with functional plants with active compounds.
  • Are vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free and sustainably packaged
    Note that unlike distilled spirits, Three Spirit elixirs are not clear. They are plant blends that are opaque like juice, reflecting the fruits and other plants they’re made from.
