ROCKLAND (WBZNewsRadio) - Lindsay Thompson is the brains behind a unique mocktail company emerging on the South Shore. Thompson and her boyfriend, John Zerewicz, have been sober for around 6 years now and said their business, Riot Rcvry, is all about making people feel included, even when they're skipping the booze.
"We want anyone to feel like they can come to an event and not worry that they're going to be triggered, especially with what's going on in the world." Thompson said. She remembers those first days of sobriety and says she skipped a friends wedding, afraid the alcohol at the event would trigger a relapse.
Thompson says their business is taking off, Riot Rcvry is now being booked for baby showers, an engagement party and even weddings.
Riot Rcvry is becoming a familiar face at the Rockland Farmers Market every week, selling a number of fresh juices including their Watermelon Nojito. It's made with fresh watermelon juice, sparkling water, lime, and mint from the family garden. For the kids, they offer a "magical unicorn lemonade".
