If your New Year’s resolution included less (or no) alcohol, or you simply need a break from the booze, these Valley mocktails will do the trick.
Electric Sapphire at Giving Tree Cafe
This beautiful drink derives its bright blue color from the superfood spirulina, which is packed with antioxidants and supports a healthy inflammatory response. It also packs ten times the Vitamin A concentration of carrots for healthy eyesight looking into 2020. The mocktail is mixed with hydrating coconut water and aloe vera with a touch of Stevia for healthy sweetness.
Desert Smash at Blue Clover Distillery

HK Virgin BYOBM at Hash Kitchen
As home to the state’s largest Bloody Mary bar, it only makes sense for brunch favorite Hash Kitchen to offer an alcohol-free version of the beloved Bloody Mary. This build-your-own Bloody Mary might not have any vodka, but you can top your creation with more than 70 topping options — from the classic like celery or bacon to the more outrageous like corn dogs and mozzarella sticks.

This warm, spicy mocktail features Mediterranean fig jam, blood orange juice and a non-alcoholic Seedlip Spice 94 spirit shaken over ice and garnished with pink peppercorn blossoms.
Swipe Right at CRUjiente Tacos
The award-winning cocktail program at modern taqueria CRUjiente Tacos has healthy mocktails for Dry January including Swipe Right.
