Whether things got a bit too silly over the silly season, or you’ve set yourself a high bar with your New Year’s resolutions, a little time off the sauce is a great idea to discover the world of non-alcoholic drinks. Because being booze-free no longer means you have to give up fizz or flavour.
Low or no-alcohol versions
If what you’re really craving is a light version of your favourite alcoholic tipple, you’re in luck. Beer and wine that is lower in alcohol, or ‘light’ has been around for some time. But now, there’s a new emphasis on health and wellness, and drinking less aligns perfectly to these ideas. Not wanting to miss out, alcohol brands are scrambling to provide options to cater to this new market. So, the low alcohol versions are turning into no-alcohol versions, without compromising on taste. And best of all? They’re increasingly widely available.
Choosing a fizzy drink no longer means heading for a lemonade. It’s easy to select a sophisticated and healthy option. Kombucha is one choice that has quickly moved from underground favourite to something you’ll find at the supermarket. The fermentation gives this drink a natural fizz and with flavours ranging from ginger and lemon, to hibiscus, to seasonal cherry or apple, there’s something for every taste.
