Seltzers, syrups and bitters!
It’s Thursday afternoon. The slow slide into the weekend has begun. And your fingers are itching to wander across your bar cart and mix a little something to celebrate making it through another week.
Not so fast, friend. It’s Dry January.
Thirty-one days of conscious sobriety may seem daunting at first, but don’t worry: we’ve got you. Build up your booze-free bar with these must-have mixers and elixirs to help stay the course.
First things first: stock up on the mocktail holy grail, seltzer and sparkling waters. Run-of-the-mill seltzer waters can be dressed up in all kinds of ways, but there is a veritable rainbow of fancy-schmancy flavors to explore. If you’re winding down for the night, look for naturally flavored or essenced options like Spindrift — the orange-mango flavor is perfect for pretending it’s still summer — or La Croix. La Croix would be a great addition to our Spiritless Bourbon Grapefruit cocktail. There are even options like Recess, which is infused with CBD and ginseng to promote clarity and calm.
