10 Things to Drink When You're Not Drinking This Dry January

Dry January, the annual tradition of abstaining from alcohol for the month of January, has gained popularity in recent years as a way to reset after the indulgences of the holiday season. While giving up alcohol can be a challenge, the benefits of a sober month are numerous. Not only can it improve your overall health and well-being, but it can also save you money and potentially even help you lose weight. If you're participating in Dry January or simply looking to cut back on your alcohol consumption, fear not! There are plenty of delicious and satisfying non-alcoholic options available from cocktail mixers and tonics, to non alcoholic spirits and beer. Here's a list of products to help you make it through the month without missing out on the fun.

Seedlip Garden 108 (about $35 for a 700-ml bottle)

The OG non alcoholic spirit, Seedlip is perfect if you're looking to make whimsical cocktails during Dry January where a spirit would typically be needed. Created with a variety of botanicals, we find these to be an excellent replacement for gin in G&T's. Its blend of botanicals give Seedlip a sophisticated and complex flavor profile that is perfect for those looking for a non-alcoholic alternative to traditional spirits.

St. Agrestis Phony Negroni ($60 for 12-pack of 6.8oz bottles)

We're huge Negroni fans, and if you were part of the Negroni Sbagliato's viral moment last year you might be too. There's a ready to drink version of the non alcoholic Negroni available with an awesome name - the Phony Negroni. St. Agrestis uses nuanced juniper, citrus, and floral notes in this non alcoholic cocktail that should get you through the month until you can enjoy a full-fledged Negroni at your favorite Italian bar on February 1.

HOP WTR Hop-Flavored Sparkling Water ($36.99 for 12-pack of 12oz Cans)

If you're into the hop-heavy IPA's popular of the craft beer scene over the past decade, you know that while those are high in bitter taste they are also pretty high in ABV. HOP WTR gives you that familiar bitter taste and mesmerizing aroma of fresh hops, without the alcohol or the calories. We can drink these by the fridgeful they're so light, and their truly authentic flavor is refreshing in a world of faux ingredient seltzers. This is one we enjoy year long, even after Dry January has ended.

FICKS Premium Margarita Mix (about $8.99 per 32oz bottle)

Bottle of FICKS Premium Margarita Mix

Throw any bottle of FICKS Mixers on the rocks to enjoy all your favorite cocktails this Dry January, while cutting back on both alcohol and sugar. Our award-winning margarita mix is a personal favorite, as it lets you enjoy some tangy, citrus-forward margaritas with no alcohol, and about half the sugar of other margarita mixers. It's a nice escape from both the cold of January, as well tequila, to sip these summer classics sans the Cuervo.

Thomas & Scott Sparkling Rose (about $22 per 750ml bottle)

Noughty wines for dry january

Made with a spirit of transparency and playfulness, Thomson & Scott’s non alcoholic wines are organic, sustainably sourced, and free of unnecessary fillers. The Noughty Alcohol-Free Sparkling Rosé is a clean, refreshing presentation of the beloved pink wine. 


Ghia Aperitif ($38 per 16.5oz bottle)

In addition to looking great on your bar, Ghia's aperitifs are a unique offering in the non alcoholic space. All natural with herbals and botanicals, Ghia is great on the rocks as a complex non alcoholic cocktail, with a rooty ginger taste but a slight sour kick. We love Ghia because they're not trying to be a mocktail or non alcoholic version of a typical cocktail, but instead forge their own place at the bar.

Ritual Zero Proof ($30 for 750ml bottle)

Ritual Zero Proof Tequila Bottle

Ritual makes a full line of non alcoholic spirits, enabling you to mix any of your favorite cocktails with pretty spot-on virgin replacements. We've already used their zero proof tequila with margarita mix multiple times this Dry January to make non alcoholic margaritas that fooled our friends, and their full bar of gin, rum and vodka does the job if you're missing that bite that spirits give to your typical cocktail.

Boisson (non alcoholic drink marketplace)

OK this one isn't a product, persay, but we can't have a list of where to buy Dry January supplies without including one of the best places to buy them - Boisson. Everything on Boisson's website is considered non alcoholic by the FDA, and they ship nationwide. Head to Boisson to discover all kinds of non alcoholic cocktails, spirits, wine and beers.

Surely Non Alcoholic Wines ($28.99 per 750ml bottle)

Bottle of Surely non alcoholic white wine for dry january

Surely offers bottles, and super-portable cans, of a variety of non alcoholic wines. We like non alcoholic wine for Dry January as it lets you fill up your wine glass and sip slowly over the course of dinner, or walking around a party. These wines have won a number of awards, thanks mainly to Surely's use of actual fermentation as seen in traditional winemaking. The alcohol is removed at the end, giving you all the taste with none of the buzz.

Monday Non Alcoholic Whiskey (about $45 for 750ml bottle)

We wanted to call out Monday's non alcoholic whiskey specifically as it's just so similar to the real deal that you can make all your favorite whiskey cocktails. We've enjoyed combining it with bitters and simple syrup to make an old fashioned, as well as with a splash of lemonade for a non alcoholic whiskey sour. If you're a whiskey drinker, this is what is going to get your through Dry January.
