Not everybody drinks alcohol, but there's no reason diners can't enjoy an expertly made and well-paired craft cocktail when they go out to a special bar or restaurant. 

At Dragonfly, one of the city's newest cocktail bars, the house specialties have light alcohol or none. Instead of being spirit-centric, they're flavored with herbal tea, vegetables like brightly colored beets and carrots and natural sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup and agave. Soon, Dragonfly will also create its own version of nonalcoholic spirits to use in their drinks.
