There can be a multitude of reasons for people to not be drinking at this (or indeed any) time of the year. Therefore it is really important that we don’t forget to have some low alcohol or alcohol free drinks for them to enjoy.
Seedlip is a staple in our house all year round. Distilled in the same way as gin this is the perfect drink for anybody who loves a gin and tonic but who is the designated driver, or looking to cut back on booze. There are several varieties to choose from and you can buy them in all good supermarkets. I can’t recommend these enough.
Virtue drinks are soft drinks with no added sugar, no calories and no artificial gubbins. They are “clean energy drinks” and come in two flavours, berries or lemon and lime and the energy is derived from a natural caffeine found in green coffee beans. In fact one can has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. Plus every can sold contributes to the conservation of plants, animals and communities in the rain forest. You can buy them online from Amazon in trays of 12 for £14.99.
