We know many of you are giving your liver a break after a year of drinking heavily—2020 was tough on all of us, no judgment. Fortunately, some of Boston’s top bars are making it easy to enjoy fanciful, booze-free cocktails at home in order to have a Dry January.
Last year was unsustainable for so many of the city’s restaurants and bars, so do the right thing and support these establishments by ordering treats to-go or for delivery. Just take these homemade potions, syrups and mixers, maybe add a bit of club soda and/or citrus, pour over ice, and fill your fanciest cocktail glass.
Citrus and Salt: Order the Beautiful Liar mix (prickly pear, lime, agave, orange flower water) or Tequila Take the Wheel (coconut and pomegranate puree, lime, agave) and have your own fiesta en su casa.
Highland Fried: Order from this fried chicken purveyor and enjoy virgin painkillers (pineapple, orange, Coco Lopez) or a sinful Tiki Coffee Batter (island spices, butter, brown sugar, molasses—just add hot coffee) in the comfort of home.
Celeste: Order the chicha morada (purple corn drink home-brewed with apples, pineapple, cinnamon, clove, molasses, lime) from this Somerville gem, and enjoy an exotic, flavor-packed taste of Peru in your finest martini glass.
