Dry January Doesn't Have to be Dry in Cherry Creek North

Get Your Mocktail Trail Mix On!

Looking for a January challenge ideas that are anything but bland? You might be wondering - what is the dry January challenge? Ditch the booze and sip your way through a foodie trail to be reckoned as you follow our Cherry Creek North Mocktail Trail. We've scoured the streets to bring you six tantalizing mocktails crafted by the area's best mixologists. Grab your friends who appreciate flavor and get the most mouth-watering 30-day challenge started!

Stop 1: True Food

A neighborhood health-food staple, start your January reset off right with a True Food mocktail and your choice of delicious and nutritious combinations off the ever-rotating menu. For mocktails, we love the Kale Aid for an immune booster during flu season, or the Sparkling Yerba Matte Tea for something different. Pro tip: dine-in during True Food’s new happy hour M-F from 3-6pm and find $5+ bevs!

Stop 2: Machete Tequila and Tacos

Spice things up at Machete Tequila and Tacos with their Strawberry Hibiscus, Blood Orange, and/or Classic Limeade Mocktails. A vibrant blend of mango puree, lime juice, agave nectar, and a pinch of Tajin, find the perfect balance of sweet and spicy, perfect to complement a fiery, authentic taco (or three)! Craving a beer? Try the Cerveza Atletica non-alcoholic beer next time you’re here!

Stop 3: Forget Me Not

Stop by one of the hottest cocktail bars in the neighborhood (just look for the white picket fence!) and find mixologists who can make just about anything you can imagine into a mocktail. Otherwise, try the Forget Me Not mixologist-approved mocktails already on the menu—our team loves the Green Machine and Deep Roots.

Stop 4: Toro Latin Kitchen & Lounge

Every Friday in January from 4-5pm, join a skilled bartender and learn how to craft vibrant, refreshing mocktails like Toro’s Paloma or Mock-arita. After discussing the how-to’s and unique flavor profiles, you will be offered a unique dish from the January Latin Lite menu to complete the 45-minute experience.

Stop 5: Le Bilboquet

The good eats don’t stop coming—order some delicious French cuisine while you sip on mocktails from Le Bilboquet infused with seasonal spices and ingredients including the Rosemary Tonic and the Cerise (made with lavender, cherry bitters and lime juice).

Stop 6: Ay Papi

End your mocktail trail with a touch of vibrance at Ay Papi, a Latin-Cuban inspired cocktail bar nestled between a local flower and coffee shop. With an extensive list of mocktails, we love the Social Contract and No-jito when we’re looking for a refreshing and non-alcoholic bev. The mixologists here are also extremely talented and can make any drink into a mocktail for you!
