Kati Patang NOT Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Cocktails Review

Kati Patang NOT Non-Alcoholic Sparkling cocktails are fizzy beverages that are inspired by flavors of three classic cocktails. These come very close to the originals.

Festivals and occasions are all about celebrations, not calories. But, just like food, drinks are an equally significant part. 

However, if you’re the designated driver or underaged or are simply trying to reduce your alcohol intake, there are virgin cocktails!

Non-alcoholic cocktails. Sounds NOT fun and NOT delicious, right? 

In our Kati Patang NOT Non-alcoholic sparkling cocktails review, we were pleasantly surprised! It’s not every day you come across carbonated beverages inspired by flavors of classic cocktails crafted with all-natural ingredients. 

Kati Patang NOT Non-Alcoholic Cocktails – What You Need To Know

Kati Patang NOT – a Non-alcoholic cocktail that comes in three variants. Unlike cocktail mixers, there’s no need to spike these beverages. 

1. Packaging

We ordered the assorted pack that comprised two bottles of each variant. There are two labels – on the bottle and the bottleneck. 

If you closely look at the graphics, you’d see how ingredients/flavors have been displayed. These were delivered in a sturdy cardboard crate.

Kati Patang NOT Non-Alcoholic Cocktails  – Our Review Factors

At no stage does the brand mention these beverages need to be spiked/mixed with alcohol. Do the Kati Patang NOT Non-Alcoholic cocktails do justice to the flavors of the originals?

1. Appearance

Overall, the bottles have a polished look. The labels are informative but not too bold. The graphics on them are descriptive yet minimalist. 

These well-crafted seltzers have lovely hues coming from the permitted natural food colors used.

  • NOT Gin & Tonic- colorless
  • NOT Cosmopolitan- rosy
  • NOT Old Fashioned- deep amber

2. Aroma

Do the aromas back the ingredients used in each of the variants? If yes, are they too overpowering?

  • NOT Gin & Tonic- a sweet, fruity/citrusy, and minty aroma
  • NOT Cosmopolitan- cranberries and oranges
  • NOT Old Fashioned- a prominent vanilla aroma

3. Flavor

Fruity, citrusy, or the undeniable bitter taste of alcohol, are the non-alcoholic cocktails flavored adequately? 

What has been used for said flavoring?

4. Calories

Cocktail mixers are generally not too high in calories. Per 100 ml, you’d get 50-90 kcal. Are these fizzy beverages suitable for those on a cut?

Did You Know-

Soda, sparkling water, tonic water, and seltzer aren’t the same though they might look quite identical?

The critical difference between these bubbly beverages lies in the flavor profiles and processing methods. 

Seltzer is the simplest. It is carbonated plain water that is sometimes flavored with natural fruit essences/oils.

Soda is similar to Seltzer but contains additional minerals like sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate, phosphate, etc. It works best with cocktails.

Tonic Water, the base of a G&T, is becoming a popular choice due to its low caloric content.

3. Old Fashioned

Taste- 3/5
Innovation- 4/5

As the name suggests, Old Fashioned is as relevant today as it was 200 years ago. A sugar cube soaked in bitters, splashed with a shot of Bourbon and an orange peel- preparing this classic drink is as easy as ABC.

Oftentimes, bourbon is replaced by whiskey. Both these spirits enhance the sweet, bitter, fruit flavors quite well. 

Does Kati Patang’s non-alcoholic version of the timeless classic have the bold bitterness? Does it showcase the delicate nuttiness with a fine essence of vanilla?
