As spring pokes its head tentatively round the corner, mindful drinking connoisseur Camille Vidal has created the perfect liquid mood-boosting accompaniment for those long, sunny afternoons, inspired by the Soap & Glory Uplifting body care collection.

The bespoke non-alcoholic cocktail is inspired by the new Soap & Glory Uplifting body care collection

You don’t often see the words “healthy” and “hedonism” rubbing shoulders with each other on the page. Nor is it common to see the word “drinking” sharing a paragraph with “mindful”. But that’s all set to change, thanks to mindful cocktail creator and self-proclaimed healthy hedonist Camille Vidal, who is revolutionising our attitude to drinking one irresistible cocktail at a time.

Camille is the founder of La Maison Wellness, which she started as a platform to spread the word about mindful drinking and share recipes for No and Low cocktails – drinks with zero or low alcohol content.

Ingredients include fresh grapefruit juice, honey and rose water

As for what mindful drinking actually is, Camille says, “It’s not about depriving yourself or compromising on taste, but about finding balance and enjoying the flavours and fragrances you love in a new way to help increase your sense of wellbeing and feeling like the best version of yourself.”

To demonstrate this relatively new concept in action, Camille has made a unique, zesty, zero-alcohol concoction – the Bright Side Spritz – inspired by the fragrance of grapefruit and rhubarb found in the new Soap & Glory Uplifting body care collection.

The end result is zesty, refreshing and delicious

“Aroma is really important in creating a delicious cocktail,” says Camille. “These citrus fragrances in the Soap & Glory range can really help invigorate and uplift the senses, which is why it’s the perfect inspiration to experiment with some incredible fruity flavours in this cocktail.”

Making the Bright Side Spritz


50ml Seedlip Grove 42 (alcohol-free spirit with grapefruit)

50ml grapefruit juice

25ml honey water (honey with hot water)

1 tsp rose water


Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker (or whatever you have to hand) and pour into a wine glass

Top up with Fentimans rhubarb tonic water

Garnish with grapefruit, rose petal and rosemary
