We’re almost halfway through Dry January. Bodies are starting to feel better and minds clear and refreshed, yet this is where some people start to crack. To help keep avoid the January Blues, Caleño is here to help you shake things up. You’re doing so well, and we truly believe that staying sober for a whole month will really change your outlook on how you consume alcohol and when you consume it.
So, to shake up things in your final couple of dry weeks, we want you to find a new way to enjoy your alcohol-free drinks, by pairing them with food! After all, drinking – whether it’s alcohol or alcohol – is all about enjoying the entire experience. We’ve been busy curating some delicious cocktails, made using exciting mixers from Double Dutch, and pairing them with some vibrant flavours like sweet pineapple, fresh watermelon, spicy chilli jelly, and fiery chocolate covered ginger.
Try serving the food as canapés, using these brilliant edible (and sustainable) spoons from Stroodles. They also make edible pasta straws, which we can’t get enough of. January is of course a time to try new things, and food and drink pairings aren’t about the alcohol, they are about how the flavours work together.
Here are a few to get you started…
