Non-Alcoholic Cocktails for Dry January

Non-Alcoholic Cocktails for Dry January | Palazzo Kitchens | Glasgow

Have you been taking part in Dry January this new year? If so, you’re in good company – more and more people are choosing to cut back on alcohol, or cut it out altogether. As a consequence, the overly sugary ‘mocktails’ which once saturated the market are gradually being replaced by more sophisticated and complex non-alcoholic cocktails.

So if you’re enjoying experimenting with non-alcoholic mixes (or are struggling through the last week of Dry January and need a little inspiration!) these classy non-alcoholic cocktails are guaranteed to hit the spot.




The Non-Collins is an alcohol-free twist on the classic Tom Collins, replacing gin with Seedlip – the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit. Seedlip Garden 108 is made from a mix of distillates – including pea, spearmint, rosemary and thyme – offering a clean and fresh herbal flavour, which just might satisfy your Dry January gin cravings.



Serves 1

  • 25ml Seedlip Garden 108
  • 25ml fresh lemon juice
  • A splash of simple syrup
  • Sparkling water to top
  • Basil and lime to garnish


  1. Fill a tall glass with cubed ice and pour in the Seedlip, the fresh lemon juice and a splash of simple syrup – then top up with sparkling water.
  2. Stir gently to mix the ingredients together.
  3. Garnish with some basil and a slice of lime, and enjoy.




Add a splash of summer to your January with a refreshing nojito – the non-alcoholic equivalent of the mojito! Agave acts as a deliciously sweet alternative to rum, which tastes just as decadent as the real thing.



Serves 2

  • 10-12 fresh sprigs of mint
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon of agave syrup
  • Sparkling water to top
  • Lime to garnish


  1. Muddle the mint leaves in a cocktail shaker with the lime juice, the agave syrup and a handful of crushed ice.
  2. Pour into 2 tall glasses with crushed ice and top with sparkling water.
  3. Garnish with a slice of lime, and enjoy.



Sparkling Grapefruit & Rosemary

If you’re looking for something sweet and a little bit sour, try this sparkling grapefruit concoction. With the sharpness of the grapefruit and the pine notes from the rosemary syrup, it’s just as complex and flavourful as an alcoholic cocktail.



Serves 2

  • 2 large pink grapefruits, squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons of rosemary simple syrup
  • Sparkling water to top
  • 2 rosemary sprigs to garnish


  1. Split the grapefruit juice and rosemary syrup between 2 chilled glasses with cubed ice – then top up with sparkling water.
  2. Stir gently to mix the ingredients together.
  3. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary, and enjoy.
