After nights of partying for end-of-year celebrations, your mission now, should you choose to accept this Dry January challenge, is to cut down on, if not totally give up alcohol all month long. This public health campaign, which started in the United Kingdom in 2013, raises awareness about the dangers of the overconsumption of alcohol. But going dry doesn't have to take the fizz out of cocktail hour. In fact, it's the perfect opportunity to try some alternatives, which are full of flavor and full of surprises!
Signing up for Dry January to take a break from alcohol certainly doesn't prevent you from following another New Year's resolution to start 2022 on the right foot: a detox program. If you're doing both, then fermented pineapple, flavored birch water, hemp mocktails and fruit juice shots are all tasty alternatives to avoid missing out on cocktail hour.
