Non-Alcoholic Drinks Now Served At Bars Like Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall, Non-Drinker Pals Can’t Say Bojio

Bars with non-alcoholic drinks

Nothing quite beats a stiff drink after a busy week at work, but some of us might have quit alcohol due to allergies, preferences or various other reasons. No matter your reasons, you won’t have to settle for overpriced Coke at bars any longer: Lyre’s line of non-alcoholic spirits are now available as handcrafted cocktails at the hottest watering holes around Singapore.

Upgrade from mocktails with alcohol-free spirits and liquors

Unlike mocktails that are usually limited to non-alcoholic ingredients like fruit juices and syrups, these non-alcoholic cocktails use the same recipes as regular cocktails, but feature alcohol-free spirits and liquors by Lyre’s.

Based in Australia, Lyre’s is bringing alternatives to bartender mainstays gin, rum, whiskey, Campari and Aperol – with London Dry Spirit, White Cane Spirit, American Malt, Italian Orange and Italian Spritz, respectively. 

These non-alcoholic spirits aren’t just regular drinks sans ethanol. Composed from essences and distillates, they even give the trademark alcohol “burn”, courtesy of the pepper extract within.

Enjoy these drinks at popular bars in town

These cocktails crafted from non-alcoholic spirits will be available at three participating bars: Don Ho, Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall and Manhattan.

With its old school speakeasy vibes, Ah Sam Cold Drink Store is renowned for its handcrafted Signature Cocktails ($22) with local twists – like Laksa, featuring dried shrimp and chilli padi. For alcohol-free options, they’re serving up Grapefruit Spritzer and Lavender Mojito, alongside a Coffee No-Groni ($14) – a non-alcoholic Negroni.

Social kitchen Don Ho has come up with three teetotal refreshments – Smooth Amaretti, Young Lebowski, and the Innocent Spritz ($12), a booze-free take on the summertime staple, Aperol Spritz. At Manhattan, voted the 11th best bar in the world, coffee lovers will enjoy New Element ($15++) inspired by Iron Man’s discovery of a new core for his Arc Reactor. 

Manhattan’s New Element combines unlikely ingredients like banana, coconut and chocolate – all mixed in with a coffee “liquor”.
