    4 fun and cosy ways to unwind without drinking alcohol this Christmas

    ‘Tis the season to get merry, but that doesn’t necessarily have to mean overdoing it on the vino and waking up with the mother of all hangovers. The lead-up to Christmas is, traditionally, a bit of a heavy one on the old drinking front: mulled wine, Prosecco, rum and coke, Baileys, gin and tonic, bucks fizz, brandy… by the time we get to the other side of Christmas lots of us will have made a hefty dent in the bar cart. 

    But, if you’d rather swerve vomcanos and sore heads, there are other ways to capture the spirit of Christmas without resorting to err, actual spirits (so vodka, you can sit this one out). 

    DITCH: A pub meet-up with friends

    SWITCH: Catching up over ice-skating and a hot chocolate

    We love a pub at Christmas, but more often than not it means that the next day is a write-off. Instead of getting steadily drunker, spilling secrets then stewing in the fear the next day, try a group activity like ice-skating that’s fun, festive, adorably wholesome and only low-key dangerous if you’re wiped out by your wobbly friend. And, swap the beer jacket for a hot chocolate.

    Try: Luxury Hot Chocolate, £12, Whittard

    DITCH: A cheese and wine night

    SWITCH: A cheese and alcohol-free cider night

    Having a gathering? We’re all for the melty camembert with chunks of baguette, or brie and stilton with crackers. But rather than washing it down with a glass of wine, we heard a cheese board pairs rather well with cider. Even better, Drynks have created a Smashed Apple Cider that’s completely alcohol free, but tastes like the real deal. Winning.

    Try: Smashed Cider, £23 for 12, Drynks

    DITCH: A cold glass of champers in a hot bath

    SWITCH: A chilled glass of kombucha in a hot bath

    When it’s this cold outside, we fully support a steamy bubble bath to warm your cockles. If you want to go boujee, chuck in your favourite bath oils or salts, light up a festive candle and treat yourself to a glass of chilled bubbly. Nope, not talking about champagne… or Prosecco.
