Dry January: Mocktail Inspiration

Dry January, as you may already know, is an initiative where people choose to give up alcoholic drinks for a month. According to Alcohol Change: “72% of people who do Dry January are still drinking less riskily six months later.” Dry January is the perfect opportunity to change your relationship with alcohol.

However, this doesn’t mean you have to miss out! We have put together two lovely mocktail recipes to help you succeed in Dry January: Non-Alcoholic Moscow Mule and an Aromatic No-Gin and Tonic. Most of the ingredients can be found in our MM Grocery.


Non-Alcoholic Moscow Mule

What you will need:

1 lime (1-2 tablespoons of juice, fresh is better)

1 tablespoon of simple syrup

¼ cup soda water

4 mint leaves

180ml cup of ginger beer (we suggest Galvanina from our MM Grocery)

Crushed Ice


How to Make it:

  • In the bottom of the cup/mug, add the lime juice, syrup and soda water.
  • Add the mint leaves.
  • Fill about the cup/mug halfway with crushed ice.
  • Then, fill ¾ of the cup with ginger beer.
  • Garnish with a few mint leaves and a slice of lime.
  • Enjoy your non-alcoholic Moscow Mule!
