Finding elevated mocktails in Wilmington is getting easier and more accessible now that more people are looking for non-alcoholic drinks and cutting back on how much they're imbibing. Many establishments in the city offer mocktails with fruit juice and syrups. Still, if you're a true non-alcoholic drinks enthusiast, you'll be looking for a zero-bar experience that serves up drinks with real non-alcoholic spirits. Step aside, Shirley Temple.

Mocktails in Wilmington NC

Q&A with Mixologist Curran Brierley


At three10, we celebrate having delicious options for all our guests. We have put together a mocktail menu with a little something for everyone; whether you are seeking a drink to make you feel like you're sipping a cocktail or just looking for something refreshing to enjoy, we have you covered. We feature a few "zero-proof" spirits in some mocktails but also use ingredients from the kitchen and local shrub makers to help round out the mocktail program.


What makes the three10 Mocktail Menu unique?

We aren't trying to just put together non-alcoholic options to check all the boxes, but we take the time to balance each of our recipes and take pride in the final product. We love seeing our customers' faces light up when they try our mocktails for the first time and are elated to have something full of flavor and appealing to the eye.


Signature Mocktails

Our favorite mocktails are the Zero Proof Persephone and the Espresso Mocktini. The inspiration for the Zero Proof Perseohone was to have the components of a Paloma but to do it with the addition of pomegranate. The Espresso Mocktini is an excellent option for something to sip on while you enjoy one of our fabulous desserts while getting some caffeine to carry you through the rest of your evening.


Zero Proof Persephone

Ingredients: 1 oz pomegranate juice, 1 oz grapefruit juice, 1 oz lime juice, 3/4 oz agave, and about 2 oz of soda water. To make: Start by putting a salt rim on half of your glass and filling it with ice, then add all the ingredients to your shaker, except for the soda water. Shake the juice and agave mixture, then strain it into your prepared glass. Garnish with a lime wheel or pomegranate arils to add an extra "je ne sais quoi."

Espresso Mocktini

Ingredients: 1 oz espresso, 1.5 oz Lyre's Coffee Originale Non-Alcoholic Coffee Liqueur, .25 oz simple syrup, and a few small pieces of orange peel.

To make: Add all ingredients to your cocktail shaker, ice, and shake vigorously to aerate the drink while chilling and diluting it to perfection. Fine strain the cocktail into a chilled martini glass, wait for the foam to settle, then finally add 3 coffee beans to the top.

Half of our craft cocktail program at The Green House Restaurant is dedicated to non-alcoholic beverages. We devote equal, if not more, attention to these non-alcoholic cocktails than traditional ones. Our focus intensifies as we delve into the innovative realm of non-alcoholic spirits, crafting new and exciting drinks around these alternatives.


What makes The Green House Mocktail Menu unique?

At The Green House, non-alcoholic cocktails have the same level of popularity as their traditional counterparts.
