National mocktail week has already begun. Let’s take a break from booze and celebrate this Dry January with the 7 fresh and fizzy mocktails.
A while ago, Christmas and New year were past and we celebrated them with a full blast. Some of us visited a few places and enjoyed it with peace but others did the opposite. They went clubbing, partied with their near and dear ones and drank all night. So, let’s take a break from booze and celebrate this Dry January with mocktails on the occasion of national mocktail week. First, let me tell you about Dry January. It refers to an alcohol-free month which is quite a challenge for booze lovers, not to drink alcohol.
In the month of January, we celebrate a national mocktail week, which is observed on the 2nd week of January. This year, it is taking place from 8th to 14th Jan. As we have a growing number of people who are looking for alternatives for the cocktails. So, the market brought a new kind of drink which is called mocktails. Mocktails are the new cocktails without alcohol for those people who want to enjoy different drinks but are alcohol-free. They have a thirst-quenching quality and come in very interesting flavours. We have curated a list for you to enjoy this mocktail week with different flavours and tastes. So, try them out, you’re gonna love it.
