Proud in every colour: your summer mocktails

Looking for a healthy and nonalcoholic way to enjoy summer? As part of our campaign Pride in all its colours, two mixologists, Shawn Fabres from Nhau and Marina Mammoliti from Le Renard, have created six mocktails for you in the six colours of the Pride flag.

As with Khate Lessard, who joined us in testing these mocktails, follow your true nature!
