To some, Dry January might sound like another wellness trend, but the truth is that the sober curious lifestyle has grown exponentially since Dry January’s humble beginnings in the U.K.

As Dry January heads into its most popular year ever, we asked The Dry Challenge author Hilary Sheinbaum for recipes that appeal to different tastes. Whether you’re someone who loves wine, looks for fruit-forward beverages or always opts for something more bitter: there’s a mocktail for all.
