Pentire Adrift | Alcohol-Free Oat Fizz

Pentire Adrift alcohol-free oat fizz is a light-as-clouds twist on the New Orlean's Classic. You've heard of gin fizz, you've heard of New Orlean's fizz. Just wait until you try this. Oatly Barista creates a deliciously smooth, creamy base. We add either egg white or a vegan alternative along with tonic water for that spectacular frothy effect. Let's take a look at why we love this delicious oat fizz, the origins of the fizz, food pairings and of course that all-important recipe. 


Why we love Pentire Adrift alcohol-free oat fizz


Pentire Adrift alcohol-free oat fizz is the ultimate impressive cocktail. Whilst many of our non-alcoholic cocktails are simple, tasty affairs, this one brings a little extra pizazz. Whether you decide on the vegan version or opt to use egg white, you're going to love the froth, the smoothness as you sip it, and most of all the flavour.


Replacing gin with Pentire in your fizz adds something a little extra to the taste. Pentire's botanical non-alcoholic spirits are made by distilling plants found on the headlands of North Cornwall. Pentire's founders advocate healthy, active, outdoor living in keeping with the Swiss lifestyle. Their blends are herbaceous, crisp and fresh with notes of sage, citrus, sea salt and rock samphire.


This oat fizz contains Pentire Adrift, the original formula. Its key botanical is rock samphire which is rich in vitamins C, E and K as well as carotenoids, flavonoids and iodine. The drink also contains omega 3, fatty acids and antioxidants. Far from making you feel groggy like a regular cocktail, this one is actively good for you.


Pentire's distilled spirits are vegan, plant based and gluten free with no added sugar.

What are the origins of the gin fizz?  


Known as both the gin fizz and the New Orleans gin fizz, this cocktail is said to be based on the Ramos Gin Fizz, created by Henry Ramos in 1888 in New Orleans. In time, those two drinks became separate.


These days, a Ramos Gin Fizz contains London Dry Gin, whilst a New Orleans Gin Fizz has Old Tom gin as its liquor base. The Ramos adds floral rose water along with vanilla essence, whilst the New Orleans sticks with syrups, lemon and lime juices and orange blossom or orange flower water. Each contains egg white or aquafaba, along with cream and soda.


Whilst new versions of the fizz pop up all the time, our Pentire Adrift alcohol-free oat fizz is the first to replace the gin with a vibrant new distilled spirit. If you're serving up gin fizz at a dinner party with Pentire fizz as the alcohol-free alternative, we need to issue you with a warning. You will undoubtedly find that some guests who are drinking will want to try the non-alcoholic version when they see how impressive it looks. Make sure you have enough ingredients to make more than you think you need. Because once they're tried this, there's no going back.
