Hello bartenders, cocktail lovers, mixologists and online friends! today I’ll reveal the recipes of my Live show 2nd episode, and it’s going to be all about “healthy Cocktail Recipes with Açai superfoods” !
Welcome back to Dedycated!
It’s tough and quite out there !
It’s time to stay locked, keep healthy, avoid contact with others and try to follow the rules as much as possible! grocery shops are the only ones open right now and just the essentials are available on the market, everything seems having stopped.
It’s not so easy when London sees the sunshine outside the windows and the calendar reminds it’s spring time!
On the other hand, as I mentioned in the title above something really cool and entertaining is happening worldwide, especially in the big family of mixologists and bartenders! Live Shows everywhere! a trend started and now a true reality, especially when major cocktail blogs and social media channels are playing alongside! (read this interesting blog article from “Cocktails for you” , 100 things to do when your bar is closed)
Cocktail tutorials from all around the world are available on the main social media platforms! my favourites are “the Late Late Night Show” from top Italian mixologist Mario Farulla, from Baccano Rome, a daily friendly chat with so many undiscovered topics and themes that are not usually discussed on the mainstream!
Have you noticed how many daily instagram live streams there are out there? some are from the top mixologists and others are really cool too, from bloggers to home- bartenders and cocktail passionates, there is really really LOADS of information!
What’s the role of myself and Dedycated?
I have streamed two weeks of Daily Shows, I have shown more than 50 cocktails streamed across the 5 continents and the viewers were more than thousands! I want to thank you all for attending the live shows!
This article is going to be a “quick resume of the Drink Recipes with Matcha superfoods – for drinks and cocktails- that I have tested, executed and recorded live on instagram and Facebook live last week at 11:30!
The daily shows become now a Weekly show, the recipes are available in video and blog posts!!
and I’m delighted to announce that I am going to share the recipe of the past weeks here on the blog and the videos of the execution of the cocktails on my YouTube channel! for you to keep updated with cocktails where alcohol is not the protagonist! and for you to take notes and make these drinks YOURS to be implemented and replicated into your cocktail list!

Why should you consider making non alcoholic drinks?
If you’re wondering why I stress so much and I concentrate so repetitively on the “Non Alcoholic cocktail knowledge” is because I am one of those who don’t quite appreciate alcoholic cocktail on a daily basis! and like me, many others are switching to Low Alcoholic cocktails and reducing the spirits in the drinks!
Some of the Most influential personalities in the world of Mixology have been spreading the word for a few years already!
Read this book from Diego Ferrari: COCKTAIL LOW ALCOHOL
the international renown bartender, author and my personal good friend has brought to the attention of the masses his Concept of a cocktail with low ABV liqueurs and reduction of spirits and booze!
You can try and be up-to-date with this trend too.
Wether you work in a high profile cocktail bar or a family-business owned little cafe, I have a few tips that might be helpful if you decide today to step-up your mixology level, especially with the non alcoholics!
Stay with me while I take you through a Booze-free journey ! Meanwhile, please take some notes, watch the live videos every day at 11:30 and if that’s not enough, follow the YouTube channel to know more useful tips on the “Mock-tail” chemistry !
I hope this article was full of inspirations and I wish you happiness and strength now more than ever, we will get through this!
Cheers to your health ! Dedycated!
