Beverages With Benefits: The Rise Of Adaptogenic Drinks

A recent study by Morning Consult reports 30% of drinkers took breaks from alcohol for a month or longer in 2022 – and according to a Forbes study, becoming more conscious of your drinking habits (aka “sober curious”) is a trend that will gain even more momentum in 2023. Not surprisingly, these stats align with the newfound popularity of plant-based adaptogenic drinks. These beverages use natural supplements to boost overall well-being and mood -- helping your body respond to stress and anxiety without the use of alcohol.


So if you were late to “Dry January”, or prefer to wait until February, the shortest month of the year, to do a “Dry” or even “Damp” month – or just want to experiment with home-made adaptogenic drinks that are as flavorful as they are beneficial -- check out two of our favorite recipes below from our friends at Well+Good with herbalist Rachelle Robinett. Infused with herbs, botanicals, and other plant-based ingredients to help you relish relaxation with every sip, you'll see why this "beverages with benefits" trend has moved into the mainstream.
