Non-alcoholic drinks to try for Dry JanuaryMark
The first month of the year is the perfect time to try a few alternatives to alcohol, as Dry January has become a regular annual occurrence. This is especially so after the challenges of 2020, as many people decide to reassess their lifestyle choices and cut back on their usual tipple. With this in mind, drink companies around the world have responded to demand, and there are now many more low or non-alcoholic alternatives available for you to enjoy.
Low alcohol and alcohol-free beers have been around for several years, but a few newcomers have joined the current selection, such as Lucky Saint Lager. This is now one of the top-selling lagers with online shopping giant Amazon, and it is fast gaining a foothold in many hospitality venues. Meanwhile, funded by a Dragon’s Den investor, the Drynks Unlimited Smashed range offers an alcohol-free cider, beer and lager for you to enjoy.
Spirits and mocktails
An alcohol-free version of the cocktail Picante, the Grove Piquant can now be made with Seedip Grove 42, a special non-alcoholic cocktail blend. To treat yourself to an alcohol-free Margarita, swap the usual tequila for Mockingbird Spirit, a vegan alternative that delivers on taste but with no alcohol. Gin lovers may be tempted by Sea Arch Coastal Juniper, a gin alternative that has a strong juniper flavour and is also sugar-free.
Dry January can be celebrated in style, so break out your best engraved drinkware and enjoy a non-alcoholic tipple or two.
