Thousands of people have ditched booze this month for the annual teetotal health boost, which saves cash too.

So to harden your resolve for the final stretch, try one or two of these non-alcoholic cocktails . . . 

TOM COLLINS: Missing the taste of gin? Tanqueray’s alcohol-free version will help to hit the spot. It is currently on offer at £14, down from £17.50 at Morrisons.

You can use it to mix up a booze-free version of the classic Tom Collins cocktail.

Take 50ml of the spirit and mix with 25ml of lemon juice, 25ml of sugar syrup and 125ml of soda water.

A bottle of Captain Morgan Spiced Gold alcohol-free spirit is £15 at Tesco but you can get it for £12 if you’re a Clubcard holder.

You need 60ml of the spirit mixed with 20ml of sugar syrup and the juice of one lime.

Tear in a few mint leaves and pour over crushed ice.

You could also use the spirit to whip up a guilt-free rum mule.

Simply add 50ml to around 100ml of ginger beer.

NOZECO: If you love your bubbles, alcohol-free Nozeco is down from £3.79 to £3.25 at Morrisons.

You can drink it as it is or add around a tablespoon of peach purée for a booze-free Bellini.

Or Mimosa fans should grab some orange juice and fill half a flute glass, then top up the rest with the Nozeco.

If you have the Tanqueray alcohol-free spirit, add 100ml with 100ml of tonic water to a big gin glass, then top up with Nozeco for a delicious fizzy mocktail.
