Portland shop offers alternative for soda lovers

PORTLAND (WGME) -- A local shop in Portland is offering an alternative for you soda lovers.

Vena's Fizz House on Fore Street in the Old Port mixes local ingredients into what they call a "mocktail."

They blend the highest quality simple syrups, along with lemon, lime and grapefruit juices, and one more key component.

The bitters are what really change the complexity the depth and every single drink I serve at the bar, says owner Steve Corman.

Steve and Johanna, a husband and wife combo, opened the business last summer.

The shop is named after Johanna's great-grandmother, Vena, who was instrumental in Maine's temperance movement in the 1900's.
