Begin Your Dry July Off Strong with Tasty Alcohol Free Tipples

Hot girls are sober curious.

When it comes to mid-year, you may be looking for the chance to refresh your body to prepare for the rest of the year ahead. Try your hand at reducing your alcohol intake by partaking in Dry (or damp, we’ll get into that later) July and use it as a chance to reset and experiment with fun drinks and non-alcoholic options.

If you’re sober-curious and are wanting to experiment with alcohol free options, there are endless options available to experiment with. Sites like Sans Drinks are dedicated to creating accessible alcohol free alternatives to your favourite tipples and most bottle shops offer non-alcoholic options. 

Aaron Trotman, founder of label NON who create luxurious and unique alcohol-free beverages, explains it’s never been easier to go sober without sacrificing flavour.

“Be open and get excited, you’re discovering the future of drinking. Your body & mind will begin to change and don’t forget to share your experiences with friends, celebrate the wins and positive experiences with non alcoholic products’,” he says, “Look for original/unique drinks, mimic products may just lead you to want ‘the real thing”. 

Dry July offers the opportunity to take a month to reduce your alcohol intake and experiment with the delicious world of non-alcoholic drinks!

Sobriety has taken the celebrity world by storm. Bella Hadid and Blake Lively are just some of the models, actors and artists to be embracing the sober life, with Lively telling Allure in 2012,It’s just something that I genuinely don’t have a desire for.”
