Take Dry January beyond the 31st with these non-alcoholic sips.

After a hectic holiday season—preceded by an incredibly stressful year—many adults are participating in Dry January for a mental and physical health reset. These alcohol-free aperitifs, CBD-infused drinks, and other fun-but-booze-free concoctions are the perfect addition to your bar cart all year round.

Non-Alchoholic Spirits

Seedlip Non-Alcoholic Spirits

A new way to cocktail. From a kitchen in the woods of England, with a copper still and a centuries-old manual entitled The Art of Distillation, Ben Branson is concocting the most exciting elixirs we’ve tasted in recent memory. With a new non-alcoholic option for drinkers in mind, Seedlip has created three non-alcoholic spirits perfect for entertaining at home—with just the addition of tonic (they’re not meant to be enjoyed straight up).

Amass Riverine Non-Alcoholic Spirit

Riverine is a refined non-alcoholic spirit that encapsulates the lush landscape of the Pacific Northwest’s temperate rainforest. Distilled with a regional blend of botanicals, it takes its cues from culinary practice for a distinct finish. Coniferous notes from Juniper are brightened by Sumac, Sorrel, Lemon Peel, and Apple, while Thyme, Mint, and Parsley lend a rich herbal earthiness. Each botanical is individually distilled in a proprietary hydrosteam distillation process to extract essential oils for a crisp and evergreen flavor profile reminiscent of the towering firs and coastal mountains of British Columbia.

Monday Zero Alcohol Gin

Gin, but hold the alcohol. Swap this blend in anytime your cocktail calls for gin, and you’ll get the kick of a classic London Dry, without the alcohol. It gets its aromatic flavor from a family-owned distillery in Southern California, where it was crafted in small batches from juniper, spices, and natural botanicals. Plus, it just so happens to be vegan and gluten-free, no sugar in sight. (It’ll even come with a few recipes to get you mixing.) And we haven’t gotten to how dazzling that bottle will look on the bar cart...

Proteau Zero-Proof Botanical Drinks, Set of 2

Grab a glass. Zero-Proof Botanical Drinks? Yep, you read that right. These botanical blends come courtesy of mixologist John deBary, who drew inspiration from New York’s culinary diversity when creating them. They can be enjoyed straight out of the bottle, of course—we recommend chilling them first then pairing with dinner or snacks, since they’re made to go with great food. But feel free to stir ‘em into your favorite cocktails too.

Curious Elixir No. 1 Booze-Free Cocktails

Curious Elixir No. 1 is our booze-free ode to our favorite classic stirred cocktail, the Negroni.

This non-alcoholic cocktail uses our unique superfood and adaptogen blend to help you unwind, including gentian and rhodiola.

Aplós
