Vinegar-Based Non-Alcoholic Mixers

Som's Non-Alcoholic Cane Vinegar Cordial Boasts Bold Flavors

— April 8, 2019 — Lifestyle
Som introduced a line of small-batch, handmade non-alcoholic mixers that can be combined with sparkling water or added into cocktails if desired. The vinegar-based non-alcoholic cordials feature organic cane vinegar, fresh fruit, produce and locally sourced Oregon berries, all arranged in recipes created by James Beard Award-winning chef Andy Ricker of PokPok in Portland. These flavors include unique options like Ginger, Cranberry, Oregon Berry, Pineapple Szechuan Pepper, Tangerine Sea Salt and Thai Basil.

According to Ricker, "Som offers patrons the option of having a zero-proof drink with an experience equal to the one they’d get if they were ordering a well-made cocktail." The cordials, which feature organic cane vinegar as a base, naturally preserve the fresh ingredients in the expressions to delight those who are looking for craft cocktails and alcohol-free beverages.
