Spice up your Dry January with these mocktails from around the globe…

It seems as every month is getting its own cause these days, and why not? We like a good Movember and stand by Awareness August, but January as we all know is all about Dry January – Dranuary if you will. Or perhaps you won’t? Either way, the road to February is paved with good intentions, be them new years resolutions that last all but a month or the no alcohol month that is Dry January. Albeit because you went a bit mad at Christmas, or you just need to take it down a notch or two, dry January doesn’t have to be all bad and certainly not as dry (boring) as the name makes out.

It doesn’t all have to be water and J2Os. So here at Beaumont, we have put together a list of three exquisite mocktails (as well as all the tools you will need to make it happen of course!) from around the interweb to make sure your dry January is a little tastier:
