And the Winner Is: Optimist Botanicals Bright

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG) strongly recommends that all pregnant women, as well as those trying to conceive, refrain from drinking alcohol. Skipping a celebratory glass of something—anything—for 40 or so weeks can leave you with FOMO. But thanks to an uptick in sober-curiosity, there’s never been a better time to be avoiding alcohol. Today’s booze-free beverage offerings are diverse and surprisingly tasty (these are not your run-of-the-mill, sugary mocktails). Optimist Bright elixir is just that—a refreshingly complex blend of botanicals that tastes like a lemony vodka. Notes of citrus and light florals transport you to a sunny locale in just one sip. Pair with soda or tonic for a cocktail taste-alike.

What We Love

  • Made in California from water and pure plant extracts like lemon, orange and jasmine

  • The blend tastes like lemony vodka (hold the vodka) and pairs perfectly with tonic or soda water over ice

  • Serve in a cocktail glass with a fancy garnish (think: edible flower or citrus peel) and be instantly transported
