Guilt-Free Cocktails  Cocktail Maker Kit With Fruits

One aspect of the festive season that inspires a little reflection come January is our alcohol intake. There’s certainly the issue of the particularly British penchant for a tipple any time the occasion even partially calls for it. But Christmas and New Year seem to be a perfect storm for having one too many, and January can leave us feeling the need to cut back – hence dry January. So as to not feel like one has to totally abandon the booze – which can be especially tricky when surrounded by others drinking – here are a couple of guilt-free cocktail ideas from some purveyors of fine, alcohol-free and low-calorie drinks that won’t have you feeling left out.”¯

Black”¯Cow”¯Vodka”¯”¯

Whey is an undervalued by-product of the cheese-making process, and one that dairy farmer Jason Barber was familiar with when, in 2012, he decided to make premium vodka from it. Made purely from the milk of grass-fed cows in West Dorset, Black Cow is ‘the world’s smoothest vodka’ and was the recipient of a Gold Medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2015. Its clean, mineral-free composition makes it ideal for sipping, with food or mixed in cocktails. Try this Orange and Star Anise concoction below, which comes in at an astoundingly low 55 calories.”¯
