If you’re in the middle of Dry January and are starting to get bored of just drinking seltzer, an alcohol-free spirit can be just the thing to zhuzh up your mocktails. With notes of elderflower, yuzu, fig, rosemary, and ginger, Ghia’s aperitif is one of our favorites. “Ghia is my go-to because I can add sparkling juices and fruit juices, but it can also be more sophisticated and deeper on its own,” says recipe developer Mehreen Karim, who keeps a bottles on hand when she’s hosting events such as Friendsgiving. Ghia tastes great on it own over ice and can be added to alcohol-free cocktails or even as an ingredient in a drink that does contain booze (if you’re Dry January is actually looking a little damp).
Today and tomorrow, Ghia is offering 20 percent off everything on its site for first-time buyers using the code STRAT20. Now is a good time to stock up on a few bottles for your bar cart, snag some canned spritzes, or buy this Dry January pack, which includes both of the brand’s signature products.
