UNCORKED: Low-ABV cocktails

Saturday, January 22nd, 2022 07:30 | By

A majority of imbibers love a good Margarita or Manhattan. But, many standard cocktails add up quickly and don’t lend themselves to session drinking.

Plus, many drinkers are looking to take a more moderate approach to alcohol these days.

That’s where the low-ABV cocktail comes in. By enlisting lower-alcohol ingredients such as vermouth, sherry, and liqueurs, you can drink a delicious cocktail without falling off your barstool.

These drinks provide plenty of flavour without as much punch, so you can meet your moderation goals or stay in it for the long haul.
