Atypique Spritz Flavoured Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Cocktail
Founded by former Canadian professional footballer Étienne Boulay, Atypique is pushing the boundaries of non-alcoholic cocktail offerings with flavours like their Spritz (our personal favourite), Amaretto Sour, Gin and Tonic and more. These non-alcoholic interpretations of classic cocktails taste so close to the real thing, they’re the perfect bevy to reach for when sparkling water just won’t cut it. Plus, each drink is 80 calories or less. You can find them at major retailers like Loblaws, Metro, Amazon, Sobeys and more.

Collective Arts Mellow Mojito
This zippy and refreshing zero-proof cocktail option is the perfect combination of sweet and tart. We especially love that it’s made in Hamilton, Ontario with just four ingredients and no preservatives.
City Seltzer Kiwi Splash
If you’re unfamiliar with City Seltzer, this is your sign to try their supremely tasty sparkling waters ASAP. Made in Ottawa, all of their sparkling waters are naturally calorie and sugar-free, and their flavours are a game-changer (think: Berry Whip, Cool Melon and more). Kiwi Splash is their latest tasty flavour and is made with just water, golden kiwi and dragonfruit. Perfect for sipping any time of day, this is a must-add to cart.
Libra Lime Lager
Brewed on Prince Edward Island, this refreshing summer brew features a touch of lime and a hint of sea salt for a zippy twist on your favourite beer. At just 20 calories per can, this non-alcoholic craft beer option is much lighter than your average brewsky, but still features the craft beer flavours you know and love.

1642 Elderflower Tonic
Made in Quebec and bottled in Montérégie, 1642 is actually the first 100% Canadian-made tonic. They offer a variety of flavours including Classic, Cucumber, Yuzu and Grapefruit tonics, but we especially love their Elderflower Tonic. If you’re a fan of St. Germain or a Hugo Spritz, this delicately floral tonic is a must-try. Plus, it makes for a perfect mixer, so you can easily stir in your favourite non-alcoholic spirit to make a sophisticated zero-proof cocktail.
iOTA Blackberry Lemon Ale
Brewed in Victoria, BC by well-known craft brewer Phillips Brewery, this brand new line of non-alcoholic beers prioritizes craft quality over all else, so you don’t have to sacrifice an iota of flavour when opting for non-alcoholic beer (see what they did there?). Available in four flavours (Pilsner, Pale Ale, Blackberry Lemon Ale, and Hazy IPA), the Blackberry Lemon Ale is our personal favourite because it’s so unique, but you can’t go wrong with any of them. The Hazy IPA is particularly noteworthy, since this style of beer is especially hard to make a non-alcoholic counterpart for.
PC Blue Menu Calamansi Citrus and Strawberry Sparkling Water
For a seriously affordable option, we love this new sparkling water from PC. At under 50 cents a can, you really can’t go wrong, and the unique combination of calamansi citrus with strawberry is delicious and unlike anything else on the market. With zero sugar, calories and sodium and made with only natural flavours, this sparkling water is delicious on its own, and we have a feeling it’d be especially scrumptious mixed together with a zero-proof spirit.
