CONCORD, N.H. –  This week marked the first ever “Mocktail Week” in New Hampshire, celebrating non-alcoholic alternatives for Granite Staters looking to enjoy a good drink.

The week stems from efforts by the Mocktail Project, a Kentucky-based non-profit group seeking to create a safer and more including drinking culture.

Mocktail Project Founder Jesse Hawkins teamed up with the New Hampshire Liquor Commission (NHLC) and Brown-Forman, in organizing the week.

“The evolution of the mocktail is similar to how the craft cocktail industry has evolved. People are becoming more health-conscious and want to know exactly what they are consuming,” Hawkins said. “Working with NHLC and Brown-Forman is a great example of how a more inclusive drinking culture can be embraced, and that it is perfectly acceptable to take a break from imbibing without giving up the experience of a bar setting or hosting a gathering at home.”

Seven Manchester restaurants, along with several more across the state, will be participating in the event.

For a list of those restaurants, as well as more information and mocktail recipes are available at Live Free and Host Responsibly Page on the NHLC website.
