Blake Lively has recently opened up about why she doesn’t drink alcohol.

She said, “I don’t drink because I don’t like the effects of alcohol, but I like being a part of it.”

Lively has started her own mocktail line of drinks called Betty Buzz. She continued, “I like being social. I like people coming together. I found that sometimes not drinking, the thing that was interesting was that it was a little alienating because you don’t feel — and maybe it’s just in your own head — but you just don’t really feel a part of it.”

Betty Buzz was inspired by her experience and she said, “When we first started talking about this company, one of the conversations that came up was like, ‘Are we going to be pushing a boulder up a hill because you don’t drink and mixers are made to mix with alcohol? I mean, that’s the name of them. So are you going to have credibility in this space as somebody who doesn’t drink?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah because I feel like I’m somebody who really likes flavor, that’s it for me.'”

Do you feel pressured to drink in social situations? Would you want a ‘mocktail’ alternative to drink during social occasions?
