Dry January is usually not my cup of tea. In fact, I've never been big on setting sweeping New Year's resolutions; banning something from my diet altogether only makes me want it more.
Moderation is the name of the game for me, so while I abstain from drinking alcohol now and then, I don't see the appeal of staying sober all January long only to hit up a happy hour on Feb. 1. Still, I'm all about finding healthier options I actually enjoy, so I was intrigued by Hiyo, a line of alcohol-free social tonics.
Hiyo infuses each of its three flavors with adaptogens and nootropics like ashwagandha, cordyceps mushrooms, and lion's mane — promising a natural mood-boosting lift instead of a boozy buzz. And at just 25 calories per can, Hiyo is also much lower in calories than a cocktail or glass of wine.
Fresh off a Christmas vacation filled with rich food and plenty of wine, I decided to test out all three flavors of Hiyo. Though I don't see myself giving up alcohol completely anytime soon, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this booze-free beverage. My husband and I both enjoyed the bold, fruity flavors, and sipping Hiyo felt just as satisfying as a cocktail or a glass of wine. Plus, if you order two or more 12-packs of Hiyo by Jan. 31, you'll receive a $22 gift card! Keep scrolling for my review of all three flavors.
