The best non-alcoholic cocktail recipes to see you through Sober October

Because giving up alcohol doesn't mean having to give up cocktail hour...

Britain’s relationship with alcohol is a long and tumultuous one. As we know all too well, it can be challenging to maintain a social life in this country without wetting your whistle. And, even during a quiet night in, many of us will reach to uncork a bottle of wine after a tough day at work.

But this is October 2019, and the times they are a-changin’. Over the past two decades, Britain has experienced a seven per cent drop in alcohol consumption, while the market for low-and-no-alcohol alternatives continues to flourish. And, whether you’re taking up the sober mantel for charity, or simply to give yourself a pre-Christmas detox, there are a handful of brilliant no-ABV alternatives that will ensure you’ll hardly notice the difference on a night out — all with the added benefit of waking up hangover-free.

We asked Dawn Davies, Master of Wine and head buyer at The Whisky Exchange, to share some of her favourite non-alcoholic cocktail recipes that are set to surprise this season.
