Sparkling fruit juice, fermented tea and jordbærmojitos are some of the drinks, you can go for, if you want to celebrate the new year without alcohol.
For many, it is the new year synonymous with coloured drinks and sticking champagnepropper.
But it doesn't have to mean that the day must then be characterized of a hangover.
If you want to avoid alcohol, you can indeed easily create delicious drinks without the percentages, says Mathias Daa Løfquist, there is barchef at Restaurant Atrium and Champion in showbartending.
- Several guests demanded drinks without alcohol, and at the same time, there also come better non-alcoholic products on the market. So, today you can easily make non-alcoholic nytårsdrinks, without that it becomes boring, he says.
welcome you can put out with a jordbærversion of the classic mojito.
Here bogs you five limebåde in a mortar together with a few fresh strawberries and two teaspoons of cane sugar.
the Juice peaks with ice, mint leaves and bubbles - for example, in the form of sparkling water - to make it easy and roaring.
- It is a sure winner as a welcome drink. It is fresh, sweet and crunchy, says Mathias Daa Løfquist.
another option is to serve a non-alcoholic sparkling tea. It is a fermented fruit juice that bubbles like champagne, but is brewed from tea and fruit juice instead of grape juice.
And in fact is more sparkling teas today has become so exclusive, that they both can be used in drinks, but can also be served "clean", as you would do it with champagne.
It could, for example, a Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Blue, suggests Zander Lauritzen Hansen, who is president of the Danish Bartender Guild and the author of a book about non-alcoholic drinks.
It is brewed from organic grapes and nine different types of tea and was first served at the copenhagen gourmet restaurant Nimb.
- You can also try a Fizz, which is produced on the sparkling cherry. The Danish and produced in accordance with the same principles as champagne, and it also has a really exciting flavor, says Zander Lauritzen Hansen.
Regardless of what you choose, you will make your drinks a favor by throwing the glasses on the keel first.
For the temperature makes the world of difference in how your drinks taste.
- The delicate tastes are highlighted, and the bitter notes are saved when one cools the beverage down. Therefore, it is the alpha and the omega, the use of cold champagne glass, says Mathias Daa Løfquist.
