Your New Nightcap with Prospect Farms and Ritual Zero Proof

This post was produced in partnership with Prospect Farms and Ritual Zero Proof as a part of our Mental Health Week Initiative. Join us on social @ProspectFarmsMaine to learn more!

We all love to wind down and relax with a glass of wine or a cocktail now and then. But while alcohol can be fun, the negative impact that too much alcohol can have on our minds and our bodies is real, and can go far beyond just feeling hungover. So how can we introduce a NEW ritual of having a drink to unwind at the end of the day that leaves us feeling equally relaxed while also waking up feeling refreshed and energized? 

Enter Your New Nightcap with Ritual Zero Proof & Prospect Farms 


Meet Ritual Zero Proof

Ritual began because we love to drink — to eat too, and have adventures. We like to wrestle with our kids and climb mountains. We like to make art and we like to stay out too late laughing. We're passionate foodies and damn good cooks, so Ritual started in our kitchens. The goal wasn't to replace liquor, but to add a new tool to our cocktail kit. Another way to mark a moment. Simple enough, right? Not so much. It took more than a year and hundreds of iterations to perfect our recipes. 

We learned how to blend jambu and prickly ash, how to extract the essence of blue agave, reduce the oil in juniper and heighten the perfume of pine. We taste-tested vanilla from Madagascar against vanilla from China. We sought guidance from master chefs and held tasting sessions for Chicago's best bartenders.

We weren't interested in a glass of "something."  We're not interested in new-age goop that defies explanation, or fancy spa water that bears no resemblance to liquor. We weren’t satisfied until it tasted and smelled and felt like the real thing. A new way to make an old favorite (or an Old Fashioned). Because we care what we put in our glass, our recipes are labors of love. Because we care what we put in our bodies, our flavors are all-natural with no allergens. (That's peanut and tree nut free, by the way.) And because life is short, our company is a group of friends. So here’s to friends clinking glasses – whatever may be in them.


Jenny Ong’s Mocktail Recipes

As someone who’s been on a mental health journey for many years, finding ways to intentionally build a routine that makes me feel my best is so important. Like so many others, I’ve begun to avoid alcohol due to its effect on physical and mental health, and this is why I’m incredibly excited to partner with Prospect Farms and Ritual Zero Proof to craft three recipes to help you unwind and destress after a long day; and ditch the negative impact of alcohol.
