On the wagon: 10 best non-alcoholic drinks

What do you serve all those who’ve given up the booze this January? We think these virgin tipples won’t look out of place on a dinner table

January, the month where scores of us up and down the country turn our nose up at the strong stuff in favour of healthier alternatives. But there's only so much orange juice and sparkling water you can stomach. Luckily there are plenty of alternatives out there. We’ve sipped our way through the options, from warming Rochester ginger ale to light and fragrant Belvoir organic elderflower and rose.

If you're on the wagon yourself this month, or pulling your hair out for what you can offer sober dinner-party guests, then here are our 10 favourite non-alcoholic drinks for grown-ups.

Verdict:

We think Peter Spanton's acai berry port-alternative will wow dinner guests, while Luscombe offers a great variety for you to work your way through. But the Feel Good mocktail range is brilliant for injecting a bit of fun into dismal January – and you can enjoy knowing you won’t have the hangover the next day.
