Fun mocktails are here to help you survive dry January

Are you giving up the booze for January, but struggling to find non-alcoholic alternatives? Look no further – we’ve got the six perfect mocktails for you.

This mocktail has tonnes of fresh mint, so much so it could almost be mistaken for the Cuban favourite

After a fortnight of prosecco-fuelled festivities and gin-drenched indulgence, the new year provides a welcome opportunity to give our poor livers a break.

Avoiding alcohol during the week is easy enough, but come the weekend the challenge really begins. Sticking to your guns is so much harder when everyone around you seems to be enjoying a cold glass of white wine, or a crisp G&T.

Feeling left out? Treat yourself with these fun and tasty mocktails, perfect to enjoy with friends or by yourself after a long day at work.

Ginger Lemonade

Spicy, refreshing and simple this homemade lemonade is great hot or cold. Plus it uses fresh ginger so will give you that warming feeling you need from a winter drink! What more could you want?

Kiwi, Lemon and Lime Fruit Punch

Have the cold winter evenings got you craving long summer days spent in the sun? Us too. Fast forward straight to July with this zingy summer punch, packed full of fresh kiwi.

Elderflower Fizz

Hawksmoor mixologist Mimi Lorandova’s favourite drink is Champagne, of course. “If I was only allowed to drink one drink for the rest of my life, it would have to be Champagne. Give me fountains of it, please!”

Although Champagne doesn’t quite qualify for dry January (sob), this elderflower fizz is bubbly, sweet and nearly as tasty. Perfect after a long day at work, simply replace the gin with Extra Special Sparkling Grape Juice.

Raspberry and Mint Punch

Craving a mojito? This mocktail has tonnes of fresh mint, so much so it could almost be mistaken for the Cuban favourite. Plus, it only has three ingredients! Mix it up a little by swapping the apple juice for Extra Special Sparkling Grape Juice.

Blueberry lemonade

Sweet, refreshing and rose pink in colour, this citrus-based mocktail is ideal for January. Pack them to the brim with fruit for a drink the whole family can enjoy. Yum!

Fruit Farm Fizz

This is a twist on the classic gin fizz (minus the gin of course), as it's easy to drink and seriously tasty! If you love pink grapefruit juice, raspberries, elderflower and rose pressé - this is sure to go down a treat!

Ditch the alcohol this January and make sure you head to your local Asda store or online to stock up on all the ingredients you'll need to create some refreshing mocktails this month!
