If you've committed to Dry January this year—or you're just cutting back on alcohol indefinitely—you might be feeling a teeny bit anxious about the adjustment, and understandably so. But luckily for anyone who's abstaining, there are now a number of tasty bottled non-alcoholic drinks out there to replace your usual beer, wine, or cocktail. Think lightly-carbonated "elixirs," alcohol-free craft pale ale, even an award-winning chardonnay. We can thank the sober curious movement for these fun new options: Trend reports show that people of all ages (especially millennials) are drinking less to get a taste of what life is like off the sauce. You'll find some of these bottles in bars, but you can also stock them at home, and take them along to parties. (If you're into mixology, check out my favorite mocktail recipes, all packed with antioxidants!)
