“We’re past the days of fruity, sugary drinks traditionally known as mocktails. Through Craft, we are proposing to retire the term mocktail, which falls short in describing a thoughtful, elegant cocktail,” said Molly Kimball,  registered dietitian and founder of Ochsner Eat FIt. “Craft gives the reader a fun and exciting venture beyond simple spritzers and outdated mocktails, to create beautiful alcohol-free drinks with little to no sugar. We were inspired by the artistry of our Eat Fit partners and by the commitment of thousands of health-conscious individuals that have participated in Alcohol-Free for 40 over the years. Craft is fun, well-balanced, and sophisticated.”

“New Orleans is known for festivals, parades, crawfish boils, and parties where alcohol is simply part of the norm.” said Kimball. “When someone is choosing not to drink, however, whatever the reason may be, Craft provides seamless alternatives. We can create remarkable cocktails using zero-proof spirits, fresh herbs, and alternatives to sugar that will be enjoyable to even the savviest cocktail connoisseur. ”Craft: The Eat Fit Guide to Zero-Proof Cocktails will be available for sale online at and various retailers across the state.
