Best Non Alcoholic Drinks for Your Summer BBQ

Summer BBQ food matches for non-alcoholic drinks

When the weather warms up in Australia we all crank up the barbeque grill and get out into the sunshine.  A good barbie involves lots of yummy grilled meat, salads, seafood and of course a great dessert.  If you're planning to drink some great non-alcoholic drinks over summer, check out our top suggestions for the best tasting non-alcoholic drinks to pair with your barbeque.


Whether you are looking for an awesome alcohol free beer, wine or mocktail to sip in the backyard, we've got some great suggestions for you!

Seared Salmon Salad

#1 Seared Salmon Salad and Songbird Rose' Spritz

The citrus and rose notes of Songbird Rose' Spritz are a perfect pairing for grilled seafood and salads. 

With a fresh aromatic scent and light sweetness, the Rose' Spritz is a great summer barbie wine. We've paired it with a delicious grilled salmon salad like this one with lemon basil dressing  but you could pair it with your favourite grilled fish or summer salad.

#2 Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs and Heaps Normal Half Day Hazy

Sticky BBQ Pork Ribs

Heaps Normal Half Day Hazy is bright flavoured, fruity and hoppy non-alcoholic beer that makes it perfect to drink with a big plate of sticky BBQ ribs.

This bright, juicy and hoppy hazy pale ale is a great non-alcoholic barbie brew and will match so well with the fingerlicking sweet, sticky deliciousness of grilled ribs.   Try this recipe or use your own favourite sticky ribs recipe for a great bbq and brew match.

#3 Coconut Lime & Chilli Prawn Skewers and Altina Finger Lime Sauvingon Blanc

Coconut Prawn Skewers

The Altina Finger Lime Sauvignon Blanc has bright flavours of white nectarine, fresh cucumber and citrus. It's fantastic served with Asian flavours like these Coconut, Lime and Chilli Prawn Skewers or a great Thai takeaway.

The crisp acidity of the Altina Finger Lime Sauvignon Blanc is a great match for these slightly spicy and fragrant skewers but would be great with most seafood dishes.

#4 Salt & Pepper Calamari and Nort Tropical XPA

Salt & Pepper Calamari

NORT Tropical XPA is a thirst quenching non-alcoholic beer with a flavour full of tropical and fruity hops. The aromas of pineapple, mango and citrus of this flavoursome non-alc brew make a great pairing for crispy salt & pepper calamari or a good fish & chips.

Its zingy and refreshing flavours complement the salty oiliness of the crisp, battered seafood perfectly.

#5 Summer Pavlova with Tread Softly Everything Except Prosecco

Summer Pavlova with Peaches and Berries

We all love a good summer dessert with our barbie, especially one piled high with seasonal fruit and cream, like this pavlova.

The vibrant citrusy flavour and fine bubbles of Tread Softly non-alcoholic Prosecco make it a great match for desserts. It is light and bright and makes a real celebration drink with a beautiful fruity summer pav.
