For those who don’t know, Dry January means not drinking for the entire first month of the year (a difficult task in these times, but we applaud you). But not drinking alcohol doesn’t mean you’re subjected to a month of nothing but water. The non-alcoholic beverage scene has blown up. Check out these delicious beverages that will make reaching your Dry January goal a cinch!
SeedLip Drinks ($32 a bottle, click here)
Seedlip is the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit, solving the ever-growing dilemma of ‘what to drink when you’re not drinking. It is based on the distilled non-alcoholic remedies from The Art of Distillation written in 1651, and now repurposed to pioneer a new category of drinks.
Seedlip takes six weeks to make & involves bespoke maceration, copper pot distillation, blending & filtration for each individual ingredient. It is then blended & bottled in England. These drinks are calorie free, have sustainable packaging, and all-natural ingredients. Note: this drink should not be consumed neat – always add ice and tonic or club soda. Go crazy on the mock-tail garnishes too!
Curious Elixirs ($79, Monthly variety pack, Click here)
Curious Elixirs was created because they believe non-alcoholic drinks should be unusually delicious, well-crafted, and good for bodies and souls. So, they began a mission to serve up the world’s best booze-free craft cocktails. These booze-free craft cocktails are infused with adaptogens to help you unwind.
Their flavors are bold and crafted for the adventurous. Each flavor is a collaboration between their team of world-class bartenders, herbalists, and food scientists, and they proudly use only organic juices, herbs, spices, roots, barks, and botanicals to make your mouth dance.
Each Curious Elixir also bolsters the body using the mysterious properties of plants — from an ancient botanical that increases serotonin and dopamine precursors, to another that increases circulation and was used in Mayan culture as an aphrodisiac.
Kalo ($20 for 4-pack, click here)
Kalo is a hemp-infused seltzer beverage. This all-natural sipper is full of the health benefits of hemp (such as vitamins, antioxidants, and other elements from the super plant). Plus, hemp is known to have de-stressing properties, which we could all use right now.
Kalo comes in four delicious flavors (pomegranate peach, lemon lavender, strawberry watermelon, and raspberry lime) and is a welcome addition to our everyday diet.
Recess ($30 for 6-pack sampler, click here)
Recess, like Kalo, features hemp to help keep customers “cool, calm, and collected.” The drink also features American ginseng, L-theanine, and lemon balm to boost your brain and calm your nerves. The brand also claims that a can of Recess can have the same effect as your 2 pm coffee—but unlike coffee, it won’t give you a headache if you skip it one afternoon. Recess offers six flavors and a “variety pack” if you’d like to try them all.
Sunwink ($48 for 12, click here)
Sunwink’s sparkling wellness tonics are crafted with super herbs known to support digestion, immunity, and stress relief. They strive to bottle the cleanest, rawest and healthiest products, only using whole plants, fresh lemons and maple syrup.
Olipop ($35.99 for 12-pack, click here)
Love soda but don’t love how bad it is for you? Look no further than Olipop. Their mission is to create a delicious, soda-like beverage that replaces spoonfuls of sugar with more nutritious ingredients like prebiotics (yes, prebiotics), and fiber.
They offer six flavors ranging from classics, like root beer and vintage cola, to fresher flavors like orange squeeze and ginger lemon. Consider us sold.
Health-Ade Kombucha ($30 for 6-pack sampler, click here)
Incorporating kombucha into your diet is a great first step towards a happier, healthier belly. Health-Ade Kombucha offers a wide selection of flavors—each more delicious than the last. Beyond the benefits of the drink, Health-Ade cares about the way they make their product.
The kombucha is made in small batches to ensure quality and packaged in glass bottles (no plastic).
Vita Coco ($13.32 for 12-pack, click here)
If you aren’t already drinking coconut water on the regular, now is the time to start. This drink is hydrating and tastes delicious too (it’s naturally sweet)! Vita Coco offers a variety of products from pressed juices to sparkling water. This will definitely be a beverage you keep around long after January.
