One of DFW’s best known happy hour spots, Bar Louie, invites anyone who celebrates Dry January to enjoy one of their two new Mocktails. Both of their colorful concoctions are alcohol free, and designed to look and taste delicious without any buzz.

Pomegranate Paloma: Picture this — Ritual Zero Proof Tequila alternative mingling with zesty pomegranate juice, lime, and a sparkling grapefruit twist, topped with a salty rim finish. It’s a refreshing tequila cocktail celebration without the hangover.

Pineapple Upside Down Margarita: Brace yourself for a tropical fiesta! This refreshing drink features Ritual Zero Proof Tequila alternative blended with tangy pineapple juice, a dash of grenadine and vanilla, and a citrusy splash of both lime and Sprite.

The sensational Mocktails will be available at all of Bar Louie’s locations for $9.50 starting January 1 and all through the month. Prices and availability may vary depending on location. For more info, visit barlouie.com.
