Dry January in Philly

Advertise with dosage MAGAZINE

Those looking to give their liver a break after a holiday season of libations may consider a Dry January. Here’s how to get started.

Dry January has become popular in recent years as a way to “sober up” after all of the merriments of the recently passed holidays. It’s a self-medicated detox in which you abstain from alcohol to give yourself a break in hopes to flush your system for the month of January.

But Dry January does not mean that you can not quench your thirst. In fact, January is a great month to explore “no proof” or nonalcoholic drinks, better known as mocktails.

In honor of Dry January, two local Philly spots are offering up their finest mocktails to help you get started on your 31 days of sobriety.

Along with freshly squeezed fruit juices, Rex at the Royal at 1524 South Street is offering two signature nonalcoholic beverages for Dry January. The Sorrel Loser’s list of ingredients includes clove-allspice-hibiscus syrup, lime juice, ginger syrup, and club soda. Rex’s Madras Coolers are made with carrot and turmeric syrup, orange juice, grapefruit, lavender, and club soda.

Get over to 1850 Benjamin Franklin Parkway and stop by Urban Farmer for your choice from their year-round variety of mocktails. On the list: Pal-No-Ma (grapefruit, lime, agave, sea salt, and soda), Pomegranate Spritz (pomegranate, lime, rosemary, and soda), Zen Martini (bergamot-fennel tea, lemon, honey, orange, and cardamom), or the No-Groni (with bitter aperitif, verjus, and lemongrass-ginger tea).

If you are a budding mixologist and would like to try your hand at crafting your own mocktails, the good folks at Art in the Age have provided two recipes, both featuring The Pathfinder Hemp and Root nonalcoholic spirit.
