Yes! We currently offer two delicious mocktail boxes. You can find them here.

Mocktails are easy to mix up when you have a few Cocktail Staples on hand. 

A sweet syrup, a citrus cocktail juice, and a cocktail garnish are your foundation ingredients and will give you many different drink options.  Then simply decide on a mixer (eg tonic, ginger beer or other flavoured mixer) and voila - mocktails made easy and dressed to impress, right down to your garnish.
