Where can I order a mocktail in
Western New York?
If you’ve ever found yourself asking this question, trust me, you’re not alone.
For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that I don’t drink. It’s a personal choice, I just don’t like how alcohol effects me, so I stay away from it. But even though I do not like alcohol, I do LOVE tasty beverages. When I’m out with my friends for dinner or just at a bar hanging out, I prefer to order something other than water or Pepsi. Thankfully, mocktails have hit the scene pretty hard in Buffalo.
I always get asked where to find the best mocktails in WNY, so I decided to put together a list of sober-friendly bars and restaurants that are slaying the mocktail game. If you’ll notice below, I added the location, linked to their website, and listed the ingredients of the drinks (if I remembered to ask.) Please keep in mind that some of these drinks may be seasonal and not available year-round, but I’m positive that your friendly neighborhood bartender will be able to whip you up something just as delicious.
I’ll be adding more bars and restaurants as I visit them, so please keep checking back! Also, if you don’t see your favorite place listed here, please send me an email at email@example.com with your recommendations!
