Rosetta’s summer mocktail to cool you down

Beat the heat with Rosetta’s Finocchio mocktail this summer. A blend of unique savoury flavours balanced with bright, fruity notes, this non-alcoholic tipple is the perfect alternative for those sticking to a dry January diary.

Mocktails are a fresh, fruity and a light alternative to an alcoholic drink. They emulate the same flavours and textures of a real cocktail and are ideal for those cutting down on alcohol during the New Year.

Rosetta’s Finocchio mocktail, named after its key ingredient, fennel, bursts with hints of cranberry and passionfruit. The addition of egg whites creates a smooth and silky mouthfeel, similar to a whisky sour.

This drink also incorporates Seedlip Spice 94, an innovative product designed to carry the same taste and consistency of gin-like spirits.
