To meet the demands of many customers who do not drink alcohol, but who do not want to give up on a good cocktail or being in company of those who do like to drink it, there is a specific heading on the menu, conceived for them: the so-called mocktails. The San Francisco is the most well-known, prepared using the juices of orange, lemon, pineapple and peach, but there is also a complete new generation of alcohol-free cocktails that you can try at Cocktail Bar of El Nacional Barcelona.
The mocktails of El Nacional
- Red Carpet: with strawberry, apple, lime and cinnamon.
- BCN Sunrise: with pineapple, peach and passion fruit.
- Piña Colada: with coconut and pineapple.
- Mojito Free: with lime, mint and ginger ale.
- Apple Dream: with apple, lime and cinnamon.
Without giving up the classic mocktails, such as the ones mentioned on the menu, these cocktails can incorporate delicious flavors such as watermelon and other surprising ones, such as ginger or jalapeño. Be surprised by our bartenders and do not hesitate to innovate.
Cocktail and tapas, the perfect couple
One of the aspects that most care has been taken with this season is the pairing of the cocktails, with or without alcohol, with the food. Therefore, now certain cocktails are recommended depending on whether it is at aperitif time (for example, the Negroni or the Spritz Aperol); if you want to drink whilst eating cheese (cocktails with a cava base, such as the Garibaldi) or others that are better for combining with fish and smoked cheese.
And obviously, there are the recommendations for those who are looking for a refreshing drink, such as a mojito, a caipirinha or a piña colada, or the essential sours, either made with pisco or with whisky.
