Mocktail Mixology: James Bond edition
Sober Doesn’t Need to Mean Bored: Seedlip
Five years ago I saw a bottle with an odd label sitting on a shelf and picked it up. The writing on the back said that inside was “A floral blend of hand-picked Peas & homegrown Hay”.
I had no idea if what I had read would be a good thing or not, so I turned the bottle upside down looking for a price, and instantly decided I would never know. $50 was too rich of an experiment for me.
Fast forward to late last year when the magical interwebs having eavesdropped on my retelling this tale, suddenly served up and ad for Seedlip.
There it was, that same odd label, same description, but with a much revised number. Thank you spyphone.
I say thank you sincerely as having done the experiment I have now concluded it would have been worth spending the fifty.
Turns out the high price tag was connected to the products importation from England. What I had been unwittingly waiting for was the US launch.
So now I can easily order from Amazon unique flavors of non- alcoholic mixers with which to shake and not stir something tasty to sip that isn’t 90% sugar or 10% caffeine.
And yes, thank you, because sometimes we boring sober people get bored of what is available and want something better.
Seedlip is that.
