The cocktail really took off in the 1980’s along with MTV, neon lights, and Sandals Resorts vacation packages. It didn’t take long for the popularity of the mocktail (the non-alcoholic cousin) to follow.
There are many reasons people seek a mocktail when out with their friends, family, and/or coworkers who are free to indulge in the usual libations. It may be a lifestyle choice, a dietary restriction, an age limitation, a designated driver designation, a bun-in-the-oven or other matter altogether. Whichever the case, it can be a bummer when witnessing the rest of one’s party raise colorful cocktail glasses and cheers in unison when you’re stuck with a bottle of Dasani or Aquafina. The clinging of glasses against plastic just doesn’t have the same literal ring to it.
Simply put, you should not have to miss out on the fun and Instagram opportunities that a traditional cocktail affords, which is why Salsa & Agave (ever-sensitive to the dietary needs of all) has put together a mocktail menu unrivaled anywhere else in Vancouver BC.
