Flask is the area’s newest craft cocktail bar and is now one of the few establishments offering mocktails in Raleigh. Anthony Rapillo, owner of Flask, sought to fill a gap he saw in his neighborhood of North Raleigh: the need for an upscale, but unpretentious cocktail bar.
As business took off quickly after their opening, Anthony and his bar staff saw another need: non-alcoholic options. Ally, bar manager, describes how fun it is to create drinks for customers that cannot consume alcohol. “I have a few pregnant regulars and they are my favorite,” she says.
Ally and Anthony realized how many consumers choose not to drink alcohol for one reason or another and they wanted to create a special menu for them to order from. They expressed their goal is to give customers spirit-free drinks that don’t sacrifice the unique flavor profiles and beautiful aesthetic that their regular menu boasts.
