Cheap Alcohol Free Drinks and Samples to try this Dry January
After a boozy December in the lead up to the big day, plus the Chrimbo limbo period with plenty of prosecco and baileys hot chocolates, you might be ready for a reset.
Enter, Dry January. Research shows that one in four people are looking to take a break from drinking alcohol this month, and adopting alternatives.
You might want to go the whole hog, by joining a gym and also giving Veganuary a go. Others might not want to give up their trips to the pub and opportunities to socialise, and therefore may want to sample some of the alcohol free options available.
Alcohol free drinks have become increasingly popular over recent years, and there are a significant variety now to choose from; I’ve listed six different ways you can grab a free or discounted low or non-alchoholic tipple this month.
