I liked this article and look forward to requesting that last one at Matilda.

You know what annoys me about trying for N/A drinks in bars? The attitude the staff sometimes gives you.

"May I have a cranberry and soda water please?"


Really, just asking for any kind of juice and soda is like pulling teeth sometimes.

Thanks for the suggestions! The only fun non alcoholic drink I know of is a Shirley Temple, and that gets old, fast!
Thank you

This article has been a long time coming. As a 25 year old who doesn't drink, I'm usually stuck with diet cokes, and rude questions such as, "Are you a recovering alcoholic?" People don't believe me when I tell them that I just don't like the taste of alcohol.

Wait- the calorie-conscious appear on the list of people who might be interested in sucking down fruit sugar and corn syrup in bars?

People who don't drink scare me. If it's because they are a recovering alcoholic that is fine and I support them. If they just don't and there out consistly, I think they are up to something and mainly think they are "too cool" to drink and much better than everyone else.
