After a decadent December, many revelers partake in a dry January. Spirit-free cocktails, formerly known as mocktails, are especially helpful to get you through the thick of winter. Detoxing is a top resolution, and there are numerous health benefits like weight loss, better sleep, more focus, and more energy. Plus your bar tab will be at an all-time low!
