Milo’s Famous Tea Mocktails to Help You Celebrate ‘Dry January’

(BPT) – After the indulgence of the holiday season, many New Year’s resolutions revolve around healthier choices from creating a gym schedule to cutting back on alcohol consumption. Over the last several years, thousands of people worldwide have cut their alcohol consumption by participating in Dry January — a resolution to abstain from alcohol for the month of January.

Dry January has grown in popularity, even becoming a national movement in the UK in 2013. This year, nearly one in five adults say they plan to give their livers a break from booze and participate in Dry January.

Not drinking alcohol, even for just a month, can make a noticeable difference in your health. Within a month of going dry, you may find yourself feeling happier, less anxious and more clear-headed. People who participated in a study on the topic reported better sleep, more energy and even weight loss.

Just because you abstain from alcohol doesn’t mean you can’t partake in some delicious non-alcoholic drinks. In fact, experts say it’s fine to reach for a substitute if you crave a cocktail.

Milo’s Famous Tea has turned some of your favorite cocktails into mocktails to help you re-center and recharge throughout January.

Known for its iconic sweet tea, Milo’s Tea also brews fresh, all-natural lemonade that tastes just like homemade. With simple, all-natural ingredients, Milo’s has been a trusted name in the beverage space for over 76 years.

These recipes are so good, you won’t even miss the alcohol!
