About the Author
JoAnne H. Pearce is an Edmonton-based graphic designer and marketing consultant, who started making mocktails as a way to keep her hands busy every day at 5pm during a 90 day alcohol-free challenge. The habits stuck — both of living sober and inventing mocktails — and this first edition of ‘Mock-Ups’ is the result.
She encourages anybody to give up drinking for a spell if they are curious. It can have some surprising results and lead to unexpected destinations, but this project is really just a way to encourage people to get creative in the kitchen, not only with their food but also with their drinks. We all deserve to treat our tongues and tummies to delicious and surprising things, and any endeavour — including a mocktail — should be approached with an open-hearted sense of humour and adventure.
