Life Without Alcohol: Great Mocktails and Non-Alcoholic Beer Options

Dry January 2021 is in full swing and you should be feeling the benefits of a life without alcohol.

But it is hard to simply cut out something that may have played a larger role in your life than you expected.

There is a way to ease the absence; enter mocktails and the non-alcoholic option!


Sidecar Mocktail

Brought to you by BBC Good Food, it contains lapsang souchong tea, lemon juice, marmalade and honey. This is a little treat to take the edge off the loss of cocktails in Dry January, with a delicious taste and a deliciously different twist on cups of tea, coffee and water.

Alcohol-Free Passion Fruit Martini

One of the classic alcoholic cocktails, this version contains none of the alcohol but all of the flavour. Containing passion fruit, lemon and sparkling grape juice, it’s a great alternative if you want to make a night a bit more special while avoiding the alcohol content.

Pineapple and Lime Mocktail

A fruity flavour, mixing pineapple juice, lime and a few coriander leaves, this mocktail provides plenty of flavour and can provide a bit of sunshine during these dark winter months.


If mocktails are not your thing then there is a range of non-alcoholic beers to help your transition to an alcohol-free lifestyle. San Miguel and Heineken are some of the options available, with a variety of non-alcoholic beers also widely stocked by supermarkets. These options should help to continue your life without alcohol and allow you to enjoy the health benefits.
