Local mocktails + non-alcoholic drinks in Chattanooga, TN

Editor Brianna's homemade mocktail, thanks to a recipe from Bitter Bottle Owner Kaleena Goldsworthy-Warnock

We’re currently 10 days into Dry January — a campaign that encourages individuals to voluntarily live sober throughout the month — and listen, if you’ve voluntarily lived sober for approximately zero of those 10 days thus far, we get it.

Engaging with the sober curious movement opens the door to a slew of health, financial, and social benefits, but especially these days, it can be hard. That’s why we’re helping out those who choose not to booze this month with a variety of local non-alcoholic offerings, from mocktails to bar drink alternatives.
