Swap Out Your Nightly Wine With These Alcohol-Free Wines & Beverages

Entering the new year, the discussion of Dry January - the month-long declaration to be sober is more prevalent. According to Time Magazine, the idea for Dry January came from Emily Robinson, a young woman who gave up drinking for a month in January 2011 to better prepare for her first half marathon. Now, annually, the trend of #DryJanuary is a challenge to enter into the new year with less alcohol. Over a decade later, we’ve also seen the trend change, with experts coining the term "Damp January."


With this concept, you cut back on alcohol consumption vs. going cold turkey, as making the choice to drink less instead of eliminating drinking altogether can help you develop healthier, sustainable habits. No matter what you decide, you’ll need some options as you enter your mocktail era, and I’ve got you covered with the following alcohol-free drink recipes and non-alcoholic brands.

ALLAY Functional Non-Alcoholic Sauvignon Blanc

ALLAY

Nothing relaxes me more than sitting at my window after a long day with a glass of white wine. If you’re cutting back on alcohol, consider ALLAY. Their Sauvignon Blanc comes from Washington and is made with organic grapes. They’ve removed the alcohol, leaving less than 0.5% ABV, and added organic functional ingredients such as ashwagandha and reishi, as well as other organic, all-natural ingredients for optimal taste and mouthfeel.

Non-Alcoholic Espresso Martini

This non-alcoholic version of the trendy drink will allow you the same sultry satisfaction with just three ingredients - thank me later.
