Mix It Up

Zero Proof cocktails provide an alcohol-free way to enjoy a flavorful cocktail without the after-effects. Our team has curated a wonderful selection of Zero Proof bitters, tonics, syrups and mixers, many from local producers, for you to enjoy, share and give as gifts this holiday season.

Portland Bitters

Portland Bitters Project

Portland

The Portland Bitters Project process starts by steeping whole, therapeutic-grade botanicals – roots, leaves and fruit – in cane spirits for up to 10 days. Then they add raw sugar and water to create memorable flavors, like Pitch Dark Cacoa, Aromatic, Super Spice, Lavender, Orange, Rose and Woodland.

Wilderton

Hood River

Truly unique zero-proof spirits from Wilderton are free of calories, gluten and allergens. Earthen is warm and exotic with a hint of smoke, while Lustre is bright, tangy and lush. Their offerings celebrate the complexity of a traditional spirit while supporting an active lifestyle.

Royalty Spirits

Royalty Spirits

Portland

Royalty Spirits premium mixers are not your average infusion but delicious, one-of-a-kind mixers that are perfect for every occasion. Chaunci King launched the company in 2014, and the company notes that she is the first African American woman to own a liquor company in the Pacific Northwest. Try Orange Spice, Vanilla Ginger or Exotic Berry.

The Bitter Housewive

The Bitter Housewife

Portland

Handcrafted in small batches, bitters from The Bitter Housewife are made with only the best ingredients for unmistakable flavor. Try a sample set of classic bitters that pair best with dark spirts, like bourbon, whiskey and scotch: Aromatic, Barrel Aged and Orange. Or try a set that pairs best with lighter spirits, like vodka and gin: Grapefruit, Cardamom and Lime Coriander. This woman-owned company is all about breaking the rules and embracing what enjoy to drink, without judgement.

For Bitter For Worse
