These creations are the work of Andrew Atwell - one of NYC’s most renowned mocktologist - these mocktails stimulate the body’s senses and elevate the non-alcoholic drinking experience helping Dry July’ers stick to their commitment of giving up booze this July.
Mr. Atwell has built a reputation as NYC’s mixology guru, serving up personally tailored libations, unique to an individual's preference. The latest chapter of his journey sees Andrew partnering New York’s The Wild Son, a healthy all-day restaurant focused on clean food, healthy proteins, greens & grains and health-benefiting mocktails that are just the right thing when you’re craving a drink worth drinking, when you’re not drinking!
