Mocktails at Epif
| Epif/Official

Portlanders love a killer cocktail, but for those who skip the booze, drink menus can often be a bummer. Still, many Portland establishments are thinking beyond classic Shirley Temples or Arnold Palmers, offering creative non-alcoholic beverages as well as great food. And bonus, because of the lack of pricy spirits, many of these drinks cost a fraction of their spiked counterparts. While some restaurants like Farm Spirit and Le Pigeon offer non-alcoholic pairings for prix fixe meals, the below restaurants and bars specifically shake and stir a la carte mocktails using fresh juices, soda water, house-made syrups, tart shrubs, and more.

1. Yonder

Portland, OR 97218
(503) 444-7947
Visit Website

Warm and inviting Southern spot Yonder very recently began serving a whole list of non-alcoholic cocktails, and the drinks are remarkably well thought out — the team uses house-made bitters, imported non-alcoholic vermouths, and various tinctures to replicate the flavors of old fashioneds and gin and tonics. For those craving the actual flavor of spirits, Yonder is likely the best bet around town in the zero-proof department.

4003 N Williams Ave
Portland, OR 97227

This coffee-shop-meets-bar on Williams has a full selection of coffee mocktails available all day, from a cold brew old fashioned to the Coffee Date with date syrup and black walnut bitters. Visitors can grab a seat at the bar and listen to djs spin old-school hip hop and R&B.

3. Eem - Thai BBQ & Cocktails

Known for its Thai curries and barbecue smoked meats, this vacation-themed restaurant’s bar program brings serious tropical vibes to the airy and colorful dining room. Bar manager and co-owner Eric Nelson, who is five years sober, designed several non-alcoholic cocktails on the menu which he labels ‘clear headed.’ The Ghost Dance — a mixture of mango puree, lemon juice, plum bitters, and imported Italian bitter soda — is playfully two-toned while more balanced and less sweet than it appears.

This super lively tiki bar on NE Broadway may be known for strong shareable drinks ceremoniously set on fire tableside, but it also has a set of five non-alcoholic tropical mocktails called ‘virgin sacrifices.’ Drinks like the creamy, coconut-and-pineapple-blended Nada-Colada and the Kiss My Kukui — with lime, pineapple, ginger, passionfruit, and mint — take visitors on an island vacation without the next-day hangover.

For drinks with a retro, old Portland vibe — the original 19th century copper floor is now the wainscoting — sober drinkers should head to the former digs of Berbati’s Pan. Along with dishes like katsu chicken sandwiches and adobo fried rice, Tryst serves a half-dozen $4 mocktails, such as a rose cordial daiquiri or cilantro-and-cucumber-infused limeade.

9. Abigail Hall

813 SW Alder St
Portland, OR 97205

The relatively new cocktail bar in the Woodlark Hotel, with flowered wallpaper, a brick fireplace, and a killer happy hour burger, recently started a mocktail program that includes three Steven Smith Tea-based beverages, as well some playful soda-based beverages with ingredients like five-alarm pepper and salted tangerine drinking vinegar. The Hopped-Chamomile Fizz is both comforting and surprising, combining Smith Meadow Tea with Citra Hops, lemon juice, tonic, egg whites, and grapefruit oil.

Balancing earthy, sweet, and sparkling, the Suvannamaccha

combines matcha, sugar, lime, and soda and pairs well with the restaurant’s equally fun cuisine.
