This Uptown Canadian import has a lengthy cocktail list, but now that December is over, focus on the “zero-proof” section of the menu. Offerings like rosemary grapefruit tonic offers up a delightful mix of rosemary, grapefruit juice, bitters, pineapple syrup, cold tea and ginger beer.

This Japanese eatery stocks a full assortment of various sakes along with table-side grillable meats and veggies, but for an alcohol-free January, try the Fuji Morada with Calpico (a Japanese non-carbonated soft drink), Peruvian purple corn, cloves, cinnamon, and seasonal fruit.

Tell the expert mixologists at HIDE what flavors you like and let them concoct a drink worth remembering. HIDE uses chemistry lab technology like rotovaporizers and centrifuges to extract the purest flavors from its raw ingredients. Ginger fans, ask for a “mocks-cow mule” – the extracted ginger is extra pungent and delicious. Or take the Yacht Club out for a spin, which blends clarified tomato juice with basil, lime and soda.

With a drink menu as vast as the one at bowling, food and drinking destination Punch Bowl Social, it’s not surprising that there’s a lengthy list of non-alcoholic sips as well. The Florist’s Tonic is one of the most light yet complex, blending non-alcoholic Seedlip Garden 108 with lavender syrup, fresh lemon juice, and elderflower tonic.

Sometimes an alcoholic drink is too hot on the palate, especially after eating spicy Thai food. Pakpao is here to help with a couple of delicious booze-free concoctions that pair quite nicely with noodles. Enter the Dragon’s Lair with dragonfruit, mint, apple juice, vanilla, and cranberry, or visit Panacea with sweet & sour, mint, and elderflower
