You can still try these mocktails during 'Dry January'

Dry January is a post-holiday trend in which consumers stop drinking alcohol for the entire first month of the year.

Chicago's Gage Hospitality Group has created several "mocktails," made with fresh juices, syrups and sodas, all created with the same care and attention to detail as the standard cocktail for those trying out a sober month.

Gage Hospitality Group Beverage Director and Sommelier Torrence O'Haire joined ABC7 to mix up some drinks.
