The Best Drinks for Dry (or Damp) January
It’s that time of year when many alcohol lovers take on the month-long alcohol-free challenge called “Dry January”. However, a new trend called “Damp January” has emerged which is just as it sounds — simply cutting back on alcoholic drinks instead of eliminating them altogether. Whether you’re practicing Dry January, Damp January, or indulging in liquor, we’ve got the drink for you right here in Downtown Roseville!
FOR DRY JANUARY (ALCOHOL-FREE!)
These drinks reinforce the phrase, “No alcohol? No problem!”
A Latte from The Fig Tree Coffee – Their dreamy latte is a top seller and will help you kickstart a productive day. Pair it with their hand pies, which is another best-seller!
Root of Happiness Kava – Kava is alcohol-free but produces a similar sensation. A wonderful choice for those who want to stay true to the mission, but don’t mind a smooth little kick.
A Hot Tea from Shady Coffee and Tea – Tea is great for any time of day. And in this chilly weather, a hot tea will help make your day a lot toastier. They have a variety of black, green, white, and herbal teas to suit every taste.
Also, check out Shady’s new handmade mugs. We think they are among the most stylish and unique mugs we’ve ever seen!
