Every year, many people try out Dry January with varying success. If you're looking to extend your efforts into the year or just want to cut down on your alcohol intake in general, that doesn't mean your drink options have to be dull. Whereas the mocktails of the past may have been little more than lemon-spiked sparkling water, nowadays there is a plethora of booze alternatives to make the month and beyond a bit more bearable.

Whether you’re looking for an alt-wine or faux liquor to make your way through your New Year’s resolution, you certainly don’t need a hard drink to find your happy time. While you might be familiar with OG non-alcoholic beverage brands like Seedlip,  here are some of our other favorite drink products to keep things interesting as you cut down on your consumption these next few weeks—or longer, depending on your goals. Plus, you may even skirt annoying symptoms like headache, nausea, or chest pain after drinking alcohol.

But with the rise of interest in non-alcoholic drinks came a surge in growth for the company, and for good reason. While there’s no alcohol in these brews, that doesn’t mean there’s no flavor, and Athletic Brewing makes sure that its beers are worth cracking open after a long day.

Best mocktails and spirits

Ritual Zero Proof Whiskey Alternative — $30.00

Enter Ritual Zero Proof, which makes three different non-alcoholic drinks—including its award-winning, best-selling Whiskey Alternative. Whether you’re looking for a way to make an alcohol-free margarita, gin and tonic, or old fashioned, you can make it with the spirit-less spirits from Ritual.

Kin Euphorics Dream Light
Kin Euphorics Dream Light — $39.00

Another one of the non-alcoholic beverage brands making mocktails cool, Kin Euphorics has an elegant collection of zero-alcohol beverages that feature adaptogens and nootropics. Promising to restore or boost your mood, the delicious flavor offerings more than make up for their lack of alcohol. A personal favorite among the three recipes is the Dream Light, whose “earthy, smoky, smoothly spiced” description perfectly matches its flavor profile. It contains melatonin, reishi mushroom, and tryptophan to support relaxation and sleep—making it perfect before bed.
