Curious Elixirs: Craft Cocktails Without the Alcohol

Curious Elixirs, Curious Elixirs: Craft Cocktails Without the Alcohol, The Travel Bug Bite

This weekend Isaac and I partied hard with soft craft cocktails created by Curious Elixirs. Curious Elixirs Number 1 through 5 do not appreciate the label ‘mocktail.’ There is nothing fake about these craft cocktails that have all the flavor and fizz without the resulting headache. Not only do these delicious concoctions lack alcohol, they also contain healthy ingredients that make them liquid superfoods.

You can also drink them while driving, even if your car does the driving for you. Use my referral link to receive 1,000 free Supercharger miles with the purchase and delivery of a new Tesla car, or earn a $100 award after system activation by purchasing or subscribing to solar panels.

About Curious Elixirs

Like many amazing products, Curious Elixirs began on Kickstarter. It took 613 backers to raise $36,756 to launch their business. Thank you! From the start, their great slogan #ShakenNotSlurred took the world by storm. They marketed themselves as booze-free, organic, and inspired by craft cocktails. The drinks that you enjoy when you’re not drinking.

Liquid Superfoods

What I love about Curious Elixirs is that they are infused with adaptogens – learn about what these are here. These healthy beverages are handmade using the best ingredients and no refined sugar. They are not just delicious but each cocktail serves a specific purpose. From the creators of Curious Elixirs:

“We created Curious Elixirs because we believe non-alcoholic drinks should be unusually delicious, well-crafted, and good for bodies and souls. So we began a mission to serve up the world’s best booze-free craft cocktails. 

And it seems we struck a chord: people from all walks of life joined our community. Some of us are sober, some of us just drink less alcohol in our quest to live our best lives. This is all to say that whoever you are and however you found us, Curious Elixirs was made with you in mind. 

Our flavors are bold and crafted for the adventurous. Each flavor is a collaboration between our team of world-class bartenders, herbalists, and food scientists, and we proudly use only organic juices, herbs, spices, roots, barks, and botanicals to make your mouth dance. 

Each Curious Elixir also bolsters the body using the mysterious properties of plants — from an ancient botanical that increases serotonin and dopamine precursors, to another that increases circulation and was used in Mayan culture as an aphrodisiac. “

Summary: Curious Elixirs

Curious Elixirs exceeded my expectations! They are not only delicious and nutritious, they also taste more like a cocktail than any other non-alcoholic alternative I have tried. Consider giving it a try and helping them grow until their products are available in stores near you! Also, if you haven’t yet, please watch this hilarious skit on drinking and driving in the Tesla. It’s not drinking and driving because the Tesla drives itself AND because Curious Elixirs is alcohol-free!
