So you’ve almost made it all the way through Dry January. Way to go! How are you feeling? Refreshed? More flush with cash? Like you could do this a little longer?
Whether you want to close out the month with a bang, continue your streak into February or just temper your booze intake going forward, here are five recipes from our archives that give nonalcoholic beverages a good name.
Orange Honey Ginger Ale, above. Loads of fresh ginger combined with freshly squeezed orange juice helps make for an aromatic, refreshing riff on the typical canned soda. You’ll have lots of flavored syrup, which can keep in the refrigerator for up to two months, for whenever the craving strikes.
Summer Fruit Punch (Kompot). Don’t be fooled by the name. Using frozen fruit or fresh fruit available year-round at the grocery store means you can enjoy this Russian beverage any time you please.
Rhubarb Rickeys. Vivid flavor and color are the hallmarks of this adaptation of the lime rickey.
Sangrita de Fruta. While normally served as a chaser with tequila, you can enjoy this refreshing concoction on its own, too.
