The Mocktail Project

It's about inclusion

When Jesse Hawkins made a personal decision to stop drinking alcohol, he was worried that he would no longer feel included in certain social settings. Hence, The Mocktail Project was born.

Several restaurants in Louisville now participate in the project, offering hand-crafted cocktails that are tasty and exciting with one special twist – they have no alcohol.

For each Mocktail sold, $1 is donated to the S.V. Foundation, which provides support for The Healing Place and The Morton Center.
