Dry January: Non-Alcoholic Drinks

Whether you’re attempting dry January, or just looking for some great non-alcoholic drink options, giving up the booze doesn’t have to be boring. There are plenty of good alternatives to your favourite cocktails, spirits and wines on the market, and I’ve discovered a great one.

So many of my friends have given up alcohol for January (with varying levels of success!) and whether or not you’re doing the same, cutting down on alcohol is a good idea to carry across the year. If, like me, you love a cocktail, it’s quite hard to swap that for a glass of juice or lime and soda. I discovered Seedlip non-alcoholic spirits while I was on a trip, and was so impressed I got in touch with them for some recipe ideas.

What are Seedlip Spirits?

Seedlip are the world’s first non-alcoholic spirits. They’re made in the style of 1600 herb-remedies that were distilled using small copper pans. These high-end drinks are served in the likes of Soho House and The Savoy, and can be enjoyed with tonic water or in delicious cocktails.

Want to try them yourself? I’ve got two delicious recipes to share with you…
