Brisbane's Best Mocktails - G&G | Gourmand and Gourmet

The best mocktails of Brisbane

We’ve come a long way as a society.

Gone are the days where asking for a non-alcoholic beverage at a bar would result in a full-blown old western shoot out (possible exaggeration, but stay with us), and the time is nigh for substitutes that have all the flavour and none of the morning turmoil. 

More than your average fruit juice mixer, mocktails are stepping out of the shadow of their alcoholic counterparts. Since its launch in 2015, the non-alcoholic spirit Seedlip has been the name on every bartender’s lips, and is now available at several Brisbane bars – it’s pretty much gin, without the gin.

Palace Supper Club | Fortitude Valley

Get seedy at Palace Supper Club with a selection of Seedlip mocktails and try one of their refreshing Seedlip Spice Martinis or ginless Seedlip Tonics.

Malt Dining | CBD

Say bye to Long Islands and hi to Spiced 94 Iced Teas at Malt Dining’s bar with Seedlip Spiced, cardamom syrup and puffed rice ice tea.

Cobbler | West End

This cocktail and whisky bar is the perfect spot to kick back and relax in an uber cool New York atmosphere, sans the bootleg.  

Madame Rouge | Fortitude Valley

Known for their delectable eats and extensive list of booze, Madame Rouge is not only a great spot to enjoy a few Seedlip mocktails, but pair them with a meal straight from the grill and your night = made.   

Maker Bar| South Brisbane

While Maker Bar may be intimate, no one will know you’re sipping on a delicious Seedlip mocktail – and if they find out, they’ll probably want one for themselves.

Here’s where to grab a good old fashioned mocktail:

Mecca Bah | Fortitude Valley

Possibly the tastiest mocktails we’ve had, these guys really deliver – and we’re all about their Pink Fez mocktail with vanilla syrup, cranberry & pineapple juices, mint, lime & lychee.

Chu the Phat | South Brisbane

Strawberry virgin mojitos are a must try when it comes to mocktails at Chu the Phat, being a refreshing twist on the classic.

Covent Garden | West End

We’re passionate about the cocktails from Covent Garden, and their mocktails are just as good – we’re looking at you, the aptly named, “We’re Out of Rum” with cloudy apple juice, lime and mint.

Electric Avenue | Woolloongabba

You’re in charge at Electric Avenue, just let your waiter know how you’re feeling (sweet, sour, bitter, all of the above) and you’ll receive a personalised mocktail just for you!

Jade Buddha | CBD

Enjoy a night by the river with a mocktail in hand, and don’t forget to grab a few bites on the side.

Cowch | South Brisbane

While these guys will be sitting out Dry July, we look forward to their udderly insane mocktail menu coming at the end of the month, so keep an eye out – and grab a freakshake and some pancakes while you’re there!

Say H2No to water – just fake it ‘til you make it with a mocktail.
