I’m not someone that drinks that often and if I’m in the house I usually just drink squash but there’s loads of non alcoholic drinks out that are meant to resemble cocktails and such I thought I’d give one a go.
I tried the Seedlip Original* £27.95 from 31DOVER which is a distilled non-alcoholic spirit with hints of wood, spices and citrus. Honestly I had no idea what the Seedlip was going to taste like or anything and was really surprised by the consistency of it because straight off the bat it reminded me of water.
It was just the consistency of the Seedlip that reminded me of water though since the taste of this is so intense. I think because I had no idea what to expect it just kind of kicked me in the face full force, it felt a bit like I just did a shot of tequila without the burning feeling. Because of the spices and wood it does give it a really smokey flavour which I think is a personal taste.
Sadly it’s not really a personal taste for me on it’s own, but as a mixer it’s lovely. Don’t be a idiot like I did and basically do shots of non alcohol spirits because that’s not what this Seedlip is for, it’s meant to be used as a mixer – on the website it’s mixed with tonic water but I prefer it with Diet Lemonade. That’s just because I despise tonic water though!
This drink is basically a Gin for when you don’t want to actually drink so if you had it mixed with some tonic water you’re basically drinking a non alcohol Gin and Tonic with a twist. Plus Seedlip* is 0.2 calories per 50ml serve, thats not even 1 calorie a drink HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? Basically if you’re on a diet and not drinking, drink this.
