Five Mockingtails to Help You Get Through The Dry Month of January

Well, so here we are in the month of January. We’re getting close to the middle of the month, and that means that some of us are almost over the dry spell that is Dry January. In the event that you are unfamiliar with the term “Dry January,” it refers to a challenge in which participants abstain from drinking alcohol for the whole month.

But if you’ve been a little bit careless during the holiday season, participating in Dry January could be a really wonderful idea for you to try. Even if you only cut back on the quantity of alcohol you consume over the week, you might see significant improvements in your health. Even though we are already halfway through the month, there is still time for you to participate.

If you are interested in participating, visit the website for Dry January to get more information and find out how you can become involved. Now mocktails. Or mocktails, if you choose not to drink alcohol. Whether you’re finding it difficult to abstain from alcohol during Dry January, or if you’re doing well but have a friend’s birthday party this weekend, these non-alcoholic cocktails will be a godsend. These bad boys are so good that you don’t even have to be abstaining from booze in order to appreciate them.

These 5 Mocktails Will Get You Through the Dry Month of January

No Alcohol Mojito


  • A Sprinkling of Mint Leaves in Your Drink
  • 2 Lime Wedges
  • 30 milliliters of pure Apple Juice
  • 15 milliliters of Elderflower Liqueur
  • Soda Water
  • A Thin Sprig of Mint to Use as a Garnish


  1. Muddle the mint leaves and lime wedges in a glass and place them in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. The glass should then have apple juice and elderflower cordial added to it.
  3. The glass should be filled with crushed ice.
  4. To mix everything together, stir.
  5. Put some carbonated water on top.
  6. Put a sprig of mint on top as a garnish.

No Alcohol Mimosa


  • Orange Juice, 50 milliliters
  • Apple Juice with a Touch of Fizz


  1. A champagne flute should have fifty milliliters of orange juice poured into it.
  2. Add some sparkling apple juice to the top.

The wonderful thing about this recipe is that you can pretty much substitute any other kind of juice for the orange juice if you want to. Juice made from cranberries? Sure, why not. Well, just to make myself feel a little more sophisticated, I could even try it with tropical fruit juice.

Rosemary and Blueberry Sour Mix


  • A Smattering of Blueberries in the Hand
  • A Thin Branchel of Rosemary
  • A Tablespoon’s Worth of Honey
  • 25 milliliters of lemon juice
  • Soda Water
  • As a garnish, some more blueberries and a sprig of rosemary.


  1. In the bottom of a cocktail shaker, muddle the blueberries, rosemary, and honey.
  2. Honey should be put into the shaker first, then it should be filled with ice.
  3. Shake until it is no longer warm to the touch.
  4. After straining, pour into a glass filled with ice.
  5. Blueberries and a sprig of rosemary should be used as a garnish.

A Gin-Less G&T


  • 3 Grapefruits
  • A Lemon
  • 3 Oranges
  • 8 Juniper Berries
  • 6 Cardamon Pods
  • A Thin Branchel of Rosemary
  • Soda Water


  1. The peel of the grapefruit, lemon, and orange should be placed in a jar that can be sealed airtight.
  2. Extract the juice from the unused fruit, then pour it into the jar that has a lid.
  3. The jar has to have the juniper berries, cardamom pods, and rosemary added to it.
  4. Put the lid on the jar, and shake it. After then, it is recommended to let this steep for at least two days before using, however it may be utilized right away.
  5. At the point where the drink is ready to be served, strain some of it into a glass.
  6. Put some carbonated water on top.
  7. After that, if you so wish, you may finish the drink off with garnishes such as a wedge of lime or some juniper berries.

Well, so this one does take a little bit of effort, but believe me when I say that the results are well worth it. If you are planning on having a group of people around, you might want to try doubling the recipe so that you can prepare a batch of gin-free G&Ts.
