Dry January mocktails: six sin-free drinks
Going alcohol-free for ‘Dry January’ doesn’t have to be all about tap water and fruit juices. In fact, many of Brighton’s non-alcoholic options are more tempting than beers and wines. Here are six of our favourite Dry January mocktails:
A blend of apple juice, lemon, strawberry syrup and lemonade, the Name Drop is topped with a toasted marshmallow. For more zest, try the Coco Lemo (coriander, coconut water, lime, lemon, agave syrup and lemonade).
Add some sunshine to your January with this mango, pineapple juice, cream and coconut syrup concoction at 32 Duke Street. Or try their Elderflower Presse, Passion Punch, or Berry Medley.
Made with soy, wasabi and Sriracha hot sauce, Bloody Manga is one feisty Virgin Mary. Black Lion also do a mean Bloody Marley with jerk seasoning, a tasty Apple and Passion Fruit No-jito, and a hot Temperance Toddy (lemon, honey and cinnamon).
‘Long, spicy and utterly refreshing,’ Plateau’s Ginger Blush is one of their best sellers. It’s made with cranberry, lime, grenadine, bitters and ginger beer. Or, if you’re hankering for a cider, go for their Apple Cart mocktail.
Made with real fruit, this in-house concoction is deservedly popular, as is their Fresh Blackberry Fizz. If you fancy something hot and healthy, try their Coconut Cardamon Chai.
For the ultimate sin-free sip, order a Flat Belly Detox Water (coconut water, watermelon, mint, lemon) at MalBar in Brighton Marina. For something sweeter, go for Lavender Lemonade or an Apple and Ginger Mojito.
Swap Espresso Martinis for this coffee, tonic water, maraschino cherry and orange blossom blend. If you’re feeling particularly wild, finish off with their Raspberries Collins or Island Sun (pineapple Juice, almond syrup, lime, mint and icing sugar).
