It’s the month of mocktails. To start the new year, many restaurants and bars take part in what’s known as Dry January — a challenge that encourages people to refocus, cleanse their systems, and abstain from alcohol consumption for one month.
To make the challenge a little bit easier for you, we’ve rounded up eight places where you can find mocktails and zero-proof drinks around Fort Worth.
Maiden, 1216 6th Ave.
The fine dining restaurant is the newest vegan joint in town and offers two mocktails made with Ritual Zero-Proof Gin.
Proper, 409 W. Magnolia Ave.
Stop into the Magnolia bar and ask for a drink from its list of 0 ABV offerings, including Heineken 00 and Lyers American Malt and Cola.
Blue Sushi Sake Grill, 3131 W. 7th St.
This is City Editor Rebecca’s favorite sushi restaurant. The menu features a long list of vegan and specialty rolls + zero-proof drinks — all for $6.50 each, which are some of the cheapest mocktails we’ve seen.
