Based among the throb of bars in Temple Street, The Botanist is a popular attractive bar with a restaurant that is often fully-booked.
The alcohol-free cocktails are marked up easily on the extensive drinks menu and offer a booze-free alternative of some of The Botanist's most popular concoctions.
With many people opting to not drink or having to drive during a night out, the mixologists have done their magic to create the same flavours and impressive appearance as their classic drinks.
It means there's still the same theatre of a dramatic smoking drink being placed before you.
We tried out the non-alcoholic versions of its signature cocktail, The Botanist and The Disaronno Sour. But there's several other alcohol-free cocktails in the range including The Botanists' classics of Apricot Mai Tai, Thai Chilli Crush, Rhubarb and Sage Spritz and Strawberry and Elderflower Mojito.
All have a stylish swizzle stick with a little green leaf on the end to indicate there's no alcohol, to put your mind at rest as the flavour is so convincing as a regular cocktail.
Can you tell the difference between the regular and booze-free cocktails?
The Botanist comes in a crystal cut glass with crushed ice. The non-alcoholic version costs £4.95, while the alcoholic one is £7.95 in comparison and have very similar tastes.
This virgin cocktail is made with Bax Botanics Verbena, Belvoir Elderflower, Jasmine syrup, red amaranth, fresh mint, lime juice and lemonade. It's missing the rum or vodka from the usual Botanist version but it's hard to tell.
The Disaronno Sour manages to still have a similar taste to the Disaronno but without any alcohol. It is a dramatic cocktail, turning up with a test tube from which smoke bellows. A dry ice spectacular that allows non-alcohol drinkers to embrace in the fun of drinking at this sophisticated bar.
Starters include a delicious Scotch Egg at The Botanist
You can just drop in for drinks at the bar or dine in the restaurant area. And it's worth pairing the drinks with food as there is a wide choice on the menu.
There's plenty of snacks if you just want some nibbles or mouth-watering starters. Choices like the Cumberland Scotch Egg, with its slightly runny egg and accompanied by a tangy brown sauce and mustard on the side.
Or there's the Calamari with creme fraiche and a sweet chilli dip, served in a beautiful oyster shell. Starters are varied with plenty of vegetarian options, all priced between £4.95 and £6.95.
For the main course, The Botanist's tour de force is its hanging kebabs of various meat and vegetable options hanging on a skewer above a bowl of chips (priced from £11.95). There's choices including crispy halloumi, chicken and chorizo, lamb kofta and much more.
