My old friend and drinking partner Helen writing a book on teetotal tipples! Whatever next? But she does it with great wit and common sense, and almost persuades me that a booze-free January is a thing of beauty. Almost.
The mocktails and infusions are savoury rather than sweet, and the recipes rely on ingredients with plenty of falvour (...) these are drinks you can make and enjoy the ritual of making, a little bit like opening a fine bottle of wine or mixing the perfect G&T.
An engaging new book . . . [Helen's] clever mocktails should get you through a dry January without too much pain.
I loved McGinn's The Knackered Mother's Wine Club, inspired by her award-winning blog. Here she explains how not to drink, suggesting mocktails, infusions, cordials, non-alcoholic beers and wines, and other adult soft drinks to help you actually enjoy Dry January . . . and any other dry spells you choose to embark on. Having just completed a very dull and dry August, I'm sold on this already.
