Whether you’re taking the first month of the year off from alcoholic beverages after an indulgent holiday season, or enjoy an alcohol-free lifestyle year round, these delicious mocktail recipes will ensure you always have tasty drink options in the new year.
The health benefits of cutting back on or eliminating alcohol, even if only for the month of January, are well documented and were the original basis behind the creation of Dry January.
