Dry January Drinks: Zero-Proof Sippers

Alcohol-free spirits, wine, beer & more….

After over indulging through holidays, many people set a goal to do Dry January.

Dry January—a month-long feat to abstain from alcohol—originally launched as a campaign in 2013 under the organization Alcohol Change UK, though the practice has roots that extend as far back as 1942, when Finland had their own “Sober January” to help in the war against the Soviet Union. Now millions take part in this health challenge every year.

And these days, you don’t have to give up the “drinking” experience for a good resolution. From non-alcoholic aperitivi to canned mocktails, there are plenty zero proof option of options to try whether you are fully committed to Dry January, or just looking to balance your sipping routine. 

Check out some fun alcohol-free drinks that will get you drunk simply on their deliciousness all month long.

Loverboy Non Alcoholic Sparkling Tea

Loverboy, the RTD beverage comapny co-founded by Bravo’s “Summer House” stars Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula, is kicking off 2024 with non-alcoholic versions of two of its original, top-rated sparking tea flavors, Non-Alcoholic White Tea Peach and Non-Alcoholic Lemon Iced Tea. Loverboy leaned into its two original, fan-favorite flavors for its first non-alcoholic teas to give its millions of fans a taste-alike, alcohol-free, better-for-you-ingredients option that doesn’t skimp on flavor or sparkle. Both made with organic brewed tea, White Tea Peach and Lemon Iced Tea each weigh in at a skimpy 10 calories per can.

“Our new Non-Alcoholic White Tea Peach and Non-Alcoholic Lemon Iced Tea flavors are made for people who like to keep the party going…in moderation…and maintain a healthy lifestyle,” says Cooke, Loverboy’s CEO and founder. “While top non-alcoholic beers clock in upwards of 12g of carbs and 50 calories per can, and RTD mocktails regularly exceed 8g of sugar per can, we’re staying true to the Loverboy taste our fans love with clean ingredients, no sugar and minimal carbs.”
