- Best Zero-Calorie: OPTIMIST Botanicals Fresh Non-Alcoholic Distilled Spirit at Boisson.co
“OPTIMIST Botanicals is a maker of artisanal non-alcoholic spirits based in Los Angeles, and they're one of the few producers offering a lineup of interesting and unique NA spirits that are calorie-free. While their "Smokey" bottling is reminiscent of the campfire notes in mezcal, and their "Bright" offering emulates citrus-flavored vodka, their "Fresh" label might be the most versatile for mixing. Boasting many of the same botanical notes as your favorite gin, "Fresh" plays well in a gimlet or a gin fizz—but the true low-calorie hack would be to grab a zero-sugar tonic water and fix yourself the first G&T you've ever had with no calories in it. Ah, what a time to be alive.” —Kate Dingwall, The Spruce Eats.
