Four Delicious Craft Mocktails You Have to Try in Ventura
Yes, there’s always a cause to celebrate in sunny Ventura, California. Great weather? Check. Uncrowded and beautiful beaches? Check. Spectacular sunsets every evening? Check. And did I mention amazing green spaces to bike, hike, and play til’ your heart’s content? That’s definitely a check.
The only difficult part about celebrating over a drink is trying to make a decision about which bar or restaurant to hang out at.
Ventura is quickly becoming the place to be when you want to have a night out on the town or a casual and relaxed get-together with friends. Craft cocktails that are not only delicious but gorgeous are what we do best here in Ventura. And those of us who are the designated driver or just don’t feel like having an alcoholic beverage aren’t left out of the fun either in Ventura. Craft mocktails and nonalcoholic beverages are becoming increasingly popular and Ventura is delivering! So calling all mocktail enthusiasts (or those of us who want a cool nonalcoholic drink): here are four delicious craft mocktails you have to try in Ventura.

Rocks and Drams
Just For You, Penicillin, and East Side Gimlet
Talk about gorgeous mocktails! Rocks and Dramshas a great selection of nonalcoholic drinks and no one will be able to tell the difference. Just For You is a beautiful pink drink with raspberry orgeat, tropical tea, lime, and elderflower tonic. You won’t be able to taste the difference as you drink Penicillin, a drink with grapefruit juice, bay leaf honey, ginger syrup, and lemon juice. And finally, the East Side Gimlet bursts with vibrant and revitalizing flavors of cucumber, mint, herbal green tea, elderflower tonic, and lime juice. The best part? All three drinks are made of in-house tea, seeped by the Rocks and Drams team themselves.
