Art in the Age's No-groni is a creative non-alcoholic drink. There are other places in Philly serving booze-free cocktails for Dry January, too.

After holiday parties and New Year's Eve, you may want to take a break from drinking to recharge and kick off the new year on a healthier note.

Many embrace that mindset and abstain from alcohol for Dry January.

Giving up booze for a month doesn't mean you can't go out, though. Local bars are offering creative non-alcoholic drinks through Jan. 31.
