Rethinking your Drinking…

Are you rethinking your drinking?

According to The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA), scientific evidence has proven that drinking less alcohol is better for your physical and mental health. Even small amounts of alcohol can be damaging so it might be time to rethink how much alcohol we are consuming.
Thankfully, it’s now easier than ever to migrate from alcohol forward cocktails to low or no-alcohol options by simply switching our cocktail-making ingredients. At Bradshaws, we have a fantastic selection of non-alcohol wines and sparkling wines, non-alcohol spirits such as gin, tequila and bourbon and a variety of high quality tonic waters, ginger beers, mixers and bitters to help elevate your new non-drinking approach.
