January is the month we all associate with starting things afresh, trying something new (even if we only stick with it for a month or so) and also we associate it with an alcohol-free lifestyle for 31 days. Some want to compensate for the Christmas and NYE food (and drink) binge, some want to save themselves from expensive nights out before the long overdue payday. Either way, January is usually not the month we see ourselves enjoying too much!
With slimline soda or juice on a standard Dry January menu, I can't blame anyone for dreading the month without the excitement of their usual drinks repertoire. However we're now in 2019 and things have changed quite dramatically in the past 12 months or so. Not drinking is now picking up momentum and spending every Sunday with a heavy head and no recollection of the night before is just...not cool.
At Nauteas we agree. Not drinking doesn't mean fun is off the menu and we've partnered up with some amazing people to bring you a range of NoLo (no or low alcohol) Nauteas-infused drinks, which will make your drinking buddies look sideways with envy...
