Are you trying to curb your drinking? With 2020 being the AWESOME year that it has been and now the holidays steadily on their way drinking can become a bit of a vice. Those evening cocktails are nice but no one wants to depend on them or feel their effects in the AM. I have been scouting non-alcoholic drinks out lately and have found my favorites that are low calorie and even lift your spirits and in some cases help you sleep. Check them out!

Seedlip was one of the first non-alcoholic spirits that I’ve ever heard about and so it will always have a special place in my heart. Seedlip creates three different kinds of distilled spirits – the Grove 42, a citrus and lemon flavored drink, Spice 94, an aromatic blend of cardamom and allspice berries, and Garden 108, a floral blend with notes of pea and hay (FAVE). These are great for those that want something to mix with tonic water for a beautiful evening nightcap.
