We all know that American Fifth can make a mean cocktail as they are constantly surprising us with unique creations every month. You don’t have to be a spirit lover to appreciate their AMAZING selection of mocktails. American Fifth makes all of their syrups homemade, so you know their non-alcoholic mixed drinks are going to be one of a kind. Try their Pineapple Italian Crème soda with their house-made pineapple syrup, half and half and soda or the Mount Olympus with blood orange iced tea and house-made honey hibiscus syrup. American Fifth has six different mocktails so whatever you choose you will be pleased!
The Grid brings us back to our childhood with retro arcade games and décor. To top it all off their drinks put a smile on our faces with their names and their flavors! The mocktails at The Grid put a twist on classic cocktails. Taste the Swamp Thing with cucumber, lime, mint and tonic water, the Sweet Valley High with strawberries, basil, lime juice and soda, or even the Green Gazoo with ginger beer, soda and lime juice. Now you can spend all night trying to get on the leadership board without headaches the next morning.
Located in East Lansing this distillery utilizes its artisan skills to make uniquely crafted spirits. This artistry is also resembled in their non-alcoholic cocktail menu. A menu featuring five different drinks, I recommend trying the Moonbeam or the Double Apple. The Moonbeam is an orange, grapefruit, tea syrup beverage made with their house-made grenadine and the Double Apple includes house-made apple syrup, spices and a special apple ingredient. You are definitely in for a treat at Red Cedar Spirits!
