With the intention of creating a spirit that doesn’t compromise mental or physical wellbeing, Optimist Drinks released a collection of distilled botanical spirits made without alcohol, sugar, sodium, carbohydrates, calories, additives and preservatives. Available in three blends — Bright, Fresh and Smokey — the craft spirits are inspired locales throughout California. Bright is meant to bring to mind salt-sprayed coastlines of L.A., Fresh is meant to emulate verdant canyons and Smokey is meant to reflect arid desert, according to the company. Packaged in 16.9-ounce bottles, Optimist varietals are available for a suggested retail price of $35.
