Putting the brakes on your alcohol intake is great for your health. We salute all the legends doing it dry!
If you’re in the middle of Dry July, here’s a few ideas for getting out and about with your mates, that are also sure to boost your plant life balance.
Brunch at your favourite Plant Life Balance place
Find your fave lush cafe and invite your friends to brunch. May we recommend a few places…
Parks are your new pub
Meeting someone? Make it a date at your local park, or the nearest botanical garden or national park. We’ve started mapping our favourite parks in Australia’s major cities, kicking proceedings off with the ACT and Brisbane, take a peek at the lists here.
Exercise in a park
Taking a break from the booze is a great opportunity to get a fit. Spend some (more) time running through lush parkland or yoga-ing on beautiful sun-drenched lawns.
Try a non-alcoholic spirit
Made from botanicals, these versatile non-alcoholic spirits are growing in popularity due to their refined taste and wondrous bouquet. We like Seedlip, and we’ve also heard good things about Ceder’s Crisp and The Driver’s Tipple. They can be enjoyed with tonic or as part of more-extravagant liquid concoctions, even once your fast has finished.
Soda with mint, lime, rosemary, cucumber, etc.
Adding your favourite herbs and fruits to sparkling water is a great way to enjoy an exciting sip. While you’re at it, why not start your own herb garden? Have a chat with your local Plant Life Balance accredited nursery to see what would work in your space.
