Tyler and Marina Castillo
Functional Mixology

At The Modern Mocktail, we're more than just a management education, consultation, zero-proof menu creation, and event services company -

we're storytellers at heart.

Each drink we craft isn't just a beverage,

each process we smooth out isn't just a relief;

it's a narrative in a glass, a tale of flavors, history, and artistry.

It's a story of triumph over chaos, and growth over defeat.

Our journey is about rediscovering the lost art of storytelling through our drinks, and through the workplace cultures we help to reorient. We delve deep into the origins of each ingredient, exploring its history and cultural significance.


This isn't just mixology; it's a celebration of stories from around the globe, brought to life in every sip.

Community – it's more than a word; it's the heart of every thriving space, and at The Modern Mocktail, we're passionate about nurturing it.


Creating a community isn't just about gathering people; it's about fostering connections, understanding, and a sense of belonging.

Building a community means striking a balance – between maintaining a safe, respectful environment and encouraging it to evolve and expand. It's about creating a space where everyone feels welcome and valued, a place where people can come together, share, and grow without fear.

At The Modern Mocktail, we don't just help create healthier workplaces and communities; we nurture living, breathing spaces where people can be their true selves, respectfully. There's nothing that will make or break your business more than the investment you put into your team.
