Have you heard of or participated in Dry January before? Many have heard the term but are unclear of its origins and what it means. In recent years, there has been an increasingly popular trend to partake in “Dry January.”
Essentially, it means to refrain from consuming alcoholic beverages for the first month of the year.
There are many reasons why an individual may choose to abstain from alcohol. One popular reason is to *reset* after the holiday season that is typically pretty booze-heavy because of gatherings and holiday parties (although this past year has been ANYTHING but typical).
I like participating because I find it lots of fun! It’s a wonderful way to get creative with zero proof drinks and really explore different flavor profiles. I wanted to share a couple of my favorite zero proof alternatives because even if you aren’t participating in Dry January, you never know when you’ll want a fancy drink in the middle of a workday, amirite?
It’s also great to have options on hand if you know of someone who is sober or can’t have alcohol for whatever reason – fancy and nuanced beverages for all!
