Interested in jumping on the national trend toward NA (non- alcoholic) beverages? We turned to Jillian Barkley, the proprietor of Soft Spirits, Silverlake’s new bottle shop that specializes in non-alcoholic spirits, beers and wines, for suggestions about non-alcoholic cocktails and tipples. Stop into the shop and browse these and other beverages—the variety and quality of alcohol- free options is seriously impressive. Here, Barkley’s recommendations for how to mix your own.

Soft Spirits, 3208 1⁄2 W. Sunset Blvd.; 323-426-9033 or softspirits.club

Better Rhodes

1. For an alternative to mulled cider

You can keep the cider, but instead of alcohol add a little Smoky No. 56 from For Bitter For Worse.

Buy it ($27)

Sovi

2. For a non-alcoholic wine that pairs well with fancy meals

Sovi’s Red Blend is a perfect pairing with decadent cuisine. (Don’t be fooled by the canned packaging, it’s just as drinkable as wine you’d find in a bottle — and more eco-friendly).

Buy it ($32 for a four-pack)

3. For the rosé spritz-lover

Barkley loves a good spritz! Her favorite recipe uses Wilfred’s Bittersweet Apertif mixed with club soda and a splash of nonalcoholic sparkling wine like Noughty.

4. For using up leftover cranberry sauce

Still got a couple of cans of cranberry sauce lying around the kitchen? Simply add a spoonful to a glass of nonalcoholic bourbon like Spiritless Kentucky 74 and top with ginger beer.

5. For the best NA cocktail to serve a crowd

Figlia makes for beautiful cocktails, Barkley tells us. One of their signature recipes suggests shaking 2.5oz of Figlia with cinnamon, honey, and a dash of balsamic vinegar.

Buy it ($43)

Casamara Club

6. For keeping up with all the cool kids

Soft Spirits are constantly selling out of these cute single-serve amaro sodas from Casamara Club. They taste as good as they look!

Monday

7. For a non-alcoholic spirit or wine that is California-made

Monday is a local brand based in Southern California. They make nonalcoholic gin and whiskey that can be substituted for the alcoholic versions in any traditional cocktail.

8. For a sweet dessert wine that's non-alcoholic
