Time for a Detox?

The holidays have come and gone and most of us have done our fair share of celebrating and imbibing. If your body is begging you for a detox but the arrival of the weekend tempts you to sip on something jovial, we’ve compiled a list of enjoyable non-alcoholic alternatives to savor without risking any of those pesky hangovers. 

(Note: FDA guidelines state that products can be considered non-alcoholic with less than 0.5% alcohol by volume so while these follow suit, read the fine print before consuming.) 

Wine

A sparkling chardonnay hailing from California, this zero-alcohol wine is crisp, refreshing, and perfect for any celebration. semblance.com

Ôpia

Domaine Pierre Chavin debuts a sparkling chardonnay alongside its signature chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and rose wines. Plus the French producer is certified organic. opia-organic.com

Giesen

These New Zealand wines are made in the same way as Estate wines with the alcohol removed after fermentation. They boast no added sugars and about 19-27 calories per 5 oz. pour. giesen.co.nz

Co-founded by songstress Katy Perry, the non-alcoholic apéritifs are made with natural ingredients and botanicals like maca, mushroom and tulsi. There are three options depending on your palate from citrus to vanilla and they come in bottles or cans. drinkdesoi.com
