Located in Sarasota, Florida, Lila is a New American vegetarian restaurant boasting a creative low-alcohol cocktail menu that is sure to make a memorable impression on their lunch and dinner guests.

Given it is only licensed to serve wine and beer, Lila compromises on the cocktail experience with botanical beverages made up of low-proof aperitifs, vermouths and liqueurs. One such example is the Lila Bamboo, which mixes Manzanilla Dry Sherry, Peach and Orleans Bitters, Dolin Rouge, Byrrh and a twist for garnish.

The low-alcohol cocktail, otherwise known as a 'shim,' is an ideal alternative for those looking to enjoy a drink without fully indulging. Making a comeback in the form of dedicated low-ABV cocktail menus, shim cocktails are an example of the consumer desire for new drinking experiences that allow a bit of customization and compromise.
