New Year’s resolutions are in full effect, and one of the most common ones is starting the year sober. Dry January, where participants forgo alcohol for the month, can help you lose weight and curb some bad habits. If you’re participating, visit these restaurants for some tasty non-alcoholic options.

The globally inspired Wynwood eatery boasts a short-but-sweet list of non-alcoholic options like the Lyre Liar Spritz, a delicious concoction made with Seedlip, Italian spritz, strawberry, lemon, and soda. There’s also the Aquachile, a margarita-esque creation made also made with Seedlip, pineapple, agave, cilantro, lime, and Togarashi salt. You can also ask the bartenders to make some of the alcoholic options with no alcohol, too—the restaurant is all about flexibility.

Over at TUR Kitchen in Coral Gables, guests can indulge in incredible Mediterranean fare as they knock back the restaurant’s zero-alcohol selections.

The other selection—the Mediterranean flower is made with Ghia aperitif, grapefruit juice, rose water, sumac, and maldon salt—and is perfect for those seeking something on the refreshing side.
