While July for a lot of us means a few beers up the mountain or a mulled wine by the fire, for many others it means a month off alcohol - otherwise known as Dry July. Dry July raises funds for New Zealanders affected by Cancer, something each of us has our own unique family or personal experience with.
For those of you who’ve taken the plunge and had a dry or “dry-ish” July, we have some excellent news for you! Firstly, you’re nearly there - just one week from the finish line! And secondly, we’ve got some delicious Seedlip cocktail recipes for you that will get you through your final alcohol-free weekend.
Seedlip were the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirits, and was born from the desire to create a truly tasty and herbal alcohol free beverage that would put the sickly-sweet “Mocktail” to shame. Since then it’s developed into a globally recognised brand, with three unique and complex blends to choose from - Grove 42, Garden 108 and Spice 94. Here we share two unique takes on popular cocktails that are perfect for a winter’s evening and will make you forget you’re not actually drinking!
