“Bright is an ideal substitute for vodka and apparently tastes like "citrus, sherbert, salty sunshine," Fresh is a great replacement for gin and tastes like "wild herbs, anise, fresh canyon air," and Smokey is like a smooth tequila and tastes like "bonfire, bittersweet, spice." That means all three can easily be used to make non-alcoholic cocktails. One example? The Professor Plum — OPTIMIST Bright mixed with a plum, a piece of lemon peel, Indian tonic, and a couple of sprigs of oregano. The Zero Proof said, "overall, we were impressed by OPTIMIST," and that it's a "nice and interesting addition to the growing world of non-alcoholic spirits.” —Tamara Warta
