Some mixologists might tell you, with their nose in the air, that all drinks aren’t created equal. Not at Coltivare. The bar team at the hip Heights restaurant from Agricole Hospitality spent time testing recipes and curating a list of “zero-proof” drinks so non-imbibing patrons can feel comfortable ordering non-alcoholic beverages. “We’ve always accommodated any request,” says beverage director Morgan Weber, “but we added the zero proof cocktails to our cocktail menu to ensure all guests are aware of their options.” The new drinks launch today.


The Original, a long-time off-the-menu specialty mocktail with hibiscus, lemon, lime and Topo Chico, now tops the zero-proof list. Craving a Pimm’s Cup? Try the non-alcoholic Finder’s Keepers, with cucumber and ginger from Coltivare’s garden. And those feeling fancy can opt for the Garden Fauxse, with hibiscus, citrus, fennel, basil, tonic and velvety egg whites. “It’s almost more challenging to make a delicious zero-proof cocktail,” explains bar manager Sarah Keck of Coltivare’s complex approach, “because you can’t rely on the spirit for flavor.”

Other Agricole restaurants, including Eight Row Flint and Revival Market, also boast beverages with low or no alcohol. And the group’s new cocktail bar Miss Carousel, opening soon in EaDo, will pour a selection of festive mocktails, too. Raise a glass to that!
