After indulging in all the drinks, desserts and festivities during the holiday season, Dry January has become a popular way to kick off the new year. Luckily for those who are interested in cutting back beyond January, zero-proof cocktails and spirit-free menus are becoming increasingly popular at bars and restaurants across the U.S. and other parts of the world so everyone can raise a glass, no matter their preferences. Additionally, Hilton has found that travelers also want to keep up their wellness routines on the road. This gives guests the opportunity to make healthy choices in every aspect of their stay, which is why many on-property restaurants and bars offer delicious alcohol-free beverages.
These five Hilton hotels and resorts specialize in carefully crafted zero-proof cocktails that might inspire those looking to book a stay or host a no-ABV happy hour at home.
