5 Mocktail Recipes That Will Make Your Dryuary Super Festive And Fun

December 4, 2017 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | Food

If you’re like a lot of people, you’re spending the holiday season enjoying the finer things in life: three or four holiday parties, delicious cookies, elaborate meals, and maybe a few too many glasses of spiked egg nog and champagne. All of that partying can eventually make you feel run down and like you’re running on empty at times. And January is the month when (sadly) those chickens love to come home to roost.

And that’s exactly why many choose a Dryuary January — one full month out of the year where they make the choice to chuck all alcohol to the curb. The decision to drink more plain OJ and fewer mimosas at brunch isn’t always an easy one, but followers of the movement say it recharges their batteries, gives their skin the detox it deserves, and helps their bodies better adjust to the cold months ahead.

Does that mean you have to reject invitations to parties with friends and nights out with coworkers? No way — call up the gang and plan to whip up these delicious mocktail recipes for anyone who has sworn off alcohol. We promise: these drinks will ensure no one misses a single drop of vodka or gin.

Virgin Mojito
