What to drink when quitting or taking a break from drinking


Taking a break from drinking or doing a “Dry Month Challenge” can be a good thing for your mental and physical health but sometimes you still might crave that beer on a Saturday at a braai or the Mojito when you go out with the girls.

For the beer lovers there are a few options like Becks, Castle Free and Heineken Zero. And on those warm days you can still enjoy a Beer Shandy with Sprite and a slice of lemon with your alcohol-free beer.

If you love a Mojito, you can try a Mint Mojito Iced Coffee. It’s a bit of a spin on the normal Mojito but definitely a try.


What you’ll need:

¼ cup coffee grounds

20 large mint leaves, divided

2 tablespoons demerara sugar, divided


½ cup whole milk, divided 

Mint sprigs, for garnish

Another amazing mocktail is the famous Shirley Temple. This one is also easy to make and cools you right down on those warm summer nights. The best thing is that they are easy to make and the barman at your favourite pub or restaurant will put his or her own spin on it.

But if you make it at home, this is what you’ll need:



3 c. lemon-lime soda 

Juice of 1 lime 

4 tsp. grenadine 


Maraschino cherries, for serving
