"Afterglow™ is a 100% natural botanical extract that mimics the pleasant warmth of drinking alcohol - without the alcohol." That's right, it mimics that warm feeling inside when you have a drink or two but without any actual alcohol. The team at Curious keeps the 'afterglow' ingredient close to their hearts and they do advise it is natural, safe, gluten-free and vegetarian.
Lisa discovered that most non alcoholic drinks don't actually give off that warm feeling when you are drinking and that the small effect is a crucial ingredient to ensure when drinking you are still experiencing that satisfaction and experience as if you were sipping on a cocktail. This special ingredient is what makes the Curious AF drinks stand out and remain that perfect non-alcoholic warming drink!
