Go dry this January and toast the savings with these healthier, alcohol-free tipples

HAVE you gone ‘dry’ this month?

2021 may be off to a slightly different start but many of us are still trying to stick to our resolutions.

Last January saw an estimated 4.2 million Brits give up booze for the month and, with reports suggesting that five weeks’ abstinence saves around £218, this can be a big saving.

But whether you’re trying to save dosh or just be healthier, these alcohol-free tipples will save you even more — as they come without a hangover . . . 

Nab Nosecco: I love some fizz, and if you need to raise a glass of bubbly to anything in the next few weeks, you may feel a bit left out.

Thankfully, the supermarkets are chock-full of great alcohol-free swaps that don’t break the bank and taste pretty good.

The Freixenet 0.0% Alcohol-Free Sparkling Wine is currently down from £5 to £4 at Tesco.

Or nab my favourite Nosecco, now £2.75, down from £3.50, at Asda and save even more.

SAVE: £2.25

Wine wouldn’t you?: What’s better than a glass of red at the end of a long day?

But if you’re dry, instead of picking up a bottle of Casillero Del Diablo Malbec, £7.50 at Sainsbury’s, pick up a bottle of their own alcohol-free red wine for just £2.75.

Plus, for rosé lovers, there’s a tasty blush version available too.

SAVE: £4.75

Gins all round: If you love a G&T and miss the taste, you’ll be pleased to know that if you pay a visit to Holland and Barrett you can snap up a 70cl bottle of Seedlip Non-Alcoholic Spirit Garden for £12.99, down from £25.99. It’s delicious paired with ice, a slice of cucumber and your favourite tonic water.

SAVE: £13

Mojito mocktail: Don’t miss out on your favourite cocktail — knock up a home-made mocktail that will taste just as good.

For a mojito, all you need is a tablespoon of sugar, a small bunch of mint (75p for a pack at Sainsbury’s), the juice of three limes (75p for three limes at Asda) and soda water (50p for a litre bottle at Tesco).

You’ll make plenty with these ingredients and save a lot of dosh, as the price of a cocktail normally starts at £7.

SAVE: Around £5

Deal of day

GET Zoom-call ready with the Babyliss For Men carbon-steel multi-groomer, now on offer at Tesco for £30, down from £45.

SAVE: £15

Cheap treat

TWININGS English Breakfast teabags are just £2.65 for 100 at Asda, down from £5.29.
