In this blog, we'll explore how partying without alcohol can be just as fun and fulfilling, with a special focus on delightful alternatives.

Why Avoiding Alcohol Can Be a Good Idea

Before diving into the world of no hangover cocktails and partying without alcohol, let's look at why alcohol can be harmful. We all have experienced the occasional morning after dry skin and brain-fog, but what are the scientific based symptoms that accompany alcohol? In the short term, alcohol consumption can lead to hangovers, poor decision-making, and unintended consequences.Long-term effects include increased risk of chronic diseases such as liver cirrhosis, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Moreover, alcohol can have a detrimental effect on mental health, contributing to conditions like depression and anxiety.

Introducing alcohol alternatives in your friend and social groups is a great way to start the conversation on other healthy living hacks! We have found that by simply describing our experiences, others share their thoughts, and we’re able to have conversations that we never considered before!

Mocktail Magic with Gigli

Even though Gigli is delightful on its own, it also serves as a versatile base for a range of no-hangover cocktails. You can follow our recipes, but feel free to freestyle. Here are some tips to help you freestyle your own mocktails:

  • Add tablespoons, not cups, of liquid to Gigli. Think fresh squeezed juices and liquids with concentrated flavors, so you don’t dilute the bubbles and the already amazing flavor.
  • Consider mulling your fruits and herbs. By crushing whole fruits and herbs, you make the flavors pop out and help the flavors mix through the mocktail. 
  • Go easy on the sugar. Gigli is already a low-sugar beverage; keep it healthy by minimizing syrups and processed ingredients. 

 Here are four mocktail ideas that perfectly complement Gigli's unique flavor profile:

Gigli Blood Moon Margarita 


How to make:

Combine Gigli Blood Orange Margarita with four tablespoons of fresh blood orange juice, two tablespoons of fresh lime juice, and two teaspoons of grenadine in a cocktail shaker with ice, mix (don’t shake!) well, and pour into a margarita glass with or without ice; for a vibrant, tropical drink. The colors mimic a beautiful sunrise, finish with a dried blood orange garnish.

Gigli Lemon Summer Slush


How to make:

This recipe is a little more involved but is super fun. We’re going to super cool your cans to create a slushie effect! First, shake up your Gigli and put it in the freezer for 3.5 hours - remember to take it out! Then, make a tiny crack in the can and flip it upside down over a cup and then right side up. Next, wait 30 seconds, crack the full tab, and pour it out into a glass. It should be an instant slushie! You can follow this video if you want a visual!

As a bonus, you can blend this Gigli Blueberry Lemonade slush with a mix of frozen berries and lemon juice in a food processor or blender for a cold and fruity slushy garnish with a handful of fresh blueberries and drink with a straw!
