…but not in a bad way. We’re well into Dry January, a campaign that encourages individuals to voluntarily live sober for one month.
For those who choose not to booze this month, here are a variety of local mocktails to sip on — because your options aren’t limited to soda and tea.
Alden & Harlow | 40 Brattle St., Cambridge
Try a Morning Dew made with raspberry, mint shrub, cucumber tonic, and lime demerara. The restaurant also offers the Queen’s Cobbler with iced earl grey tea, pineapple, ginger, and lemon. Of course, you can’t go wrong with a Strawberry Lime Ricky either.
Citrus & Salt | 142 Berkeley St.
The drinks at Citrus & Salt are known for being sweet and aesthetic, and the agua frescas are no different. Sip on a Fruity Pebble Iced Tea, made with herbal tea, agave, and lemon, or try the Strawberry Piña Colada for a tropical escape in this winter weather.
Hunter’s Kitchen & Bar | 110 Dorchester Ave.
Head to South Boston to indulge in a Ginger Snap (spicy ginger, cranberry, lime, and soda) or a Virgin Mojito (mint, lime, and soda). Simple + delicious. Little Donkey | 505 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge
Little Donkey | 505 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge
For a refreshing mocktail this January, don’t skip the Stair Car — a hoppy refresher with grapefruit, lemon + cinnamon.
Madre Osteria & Bar | 88 Wharf St., Milton
It’s worth a 30-minute drive to Milton for these mocktails. Madre Osteria serves up a delicious “Nongroni” with New London non-alcoholic gin, giffard aperitivo, and blood orange. There are also mocktails with non-alcoholic tequila and rum if gin isn’t your thing.
