5 Alcohol Free Cocktails To Make During Dry January

5 Alcohol Free Cocktails To Make During Dry January

At Caleño, we love a good party. After all, it’s in our Colombian routes. And just because it’s Dry January, it doesn’t mean the enjoyment has to stop. 

To help you stay motivated and inspired throughout the month, we’ve launched our fun-filled campaign to help you Shake Up Your Dry Jan. If you follow us on social media you may have seen that we’ve even gone as far as to get our own Caleño double decker bus, and we’re currently on a road trip, bringing Caleño joy to as many people as possible – if you’re lucky, you may even find a bottle on your doorstep. If not, you can stock up in Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Ocado, and Amazon. You’ll need one (or two) for these delicious cocktails…

You may be asking “How do you sober up in a month?” – our answer is to stir a little joy into your month of sobriety. Here are our Dry January alcohol free cocktail recipes to help you shake up your Dry Jan:
