List of the best mocktails: Yi Peng Thai Dining
Despite the growing consumer demand for mocktails and special “zeroproof” drinks that do not contain alcohol, most restaurants only offer non-alcoholic drinks afterwards. Not so at Yi Peng Thai Dining by Chef Jett and Jura Hurapan in Memorial City’s CITYCENTRE, where guests are presented with both a cocktail and a mocktail menu when they sit down. There is the Yi Peng Sunrise, made from melon juice and coconut water, shaken and strained into a coupe glass and garnished with a melon ball and lime wedge.
Another fun creation is the Smiling Buddha, which comes in a clear glass mug with diced cucumber pieces in a bubbly mix of lime juice and club soda. or Coco Pom, a game with a mojito made from pomegranate juice and coconut water. There are a total of six mocktails to choose from, each beautifully crafted order. The fact that you can enjoy some of the best Thai dishes in town is an added bonus.
