So this is me, holding a copy of my new book – Teetotal Tipples – in my hand. Obviously, I have a glass of wine in the other. It’s now exactly a month until the book is out but you can pre-order it here! I wrote it because, having done a dry January earlier this year, I realised the hardest part about not drinking wasn’t in fact the not drinking. Rather, it was finding a vaguely grown up soft drink to replace my usual glass of wine. So this book’s full of booze-free drinks to get you through a dry spell whether for a month, nine months or just a couple of nights a week. And at the end, there’s a whole section on what to look out for when you’re back on the wine. All for the price of a decent bottle! Talking of which…

  1. So looking forward to it. I know, me being a cocktail addict but true. I had to make a mocktail for a cooking demo and although quite challenged to start with, I soon got into the whole no alcohol thing. The mocktail demo was more popular that the alcoholic one!! Elinor xx

    • Exactly! There’s lots you can do to make booze-free not quite so dull. And best of all, it makes me really appreciate the wine in my glass when it’s in there!

  2. Hi Helen, Really big congratulations on your new book – your face says it all! Please put a copy on order for us or should I follow a specific route to place an order?
    Due to Steven’s current condition (I am sure you have heard about it), we have both turned (temporarily) vegan – and off the alcohol!! 🙁
    Therefore your book could not have come at a better time – so we look forward to trying out every one of the recipes in your new book. Catch up with you soon and I hope your book flies off the shelves. – ps would you kindly sign it for us please (for when you are REALLY famous!! – or should I add and REALLY WEALTHY – like JK Rowling!!!
    best wishes Alison and Steven Ware

    • Hi Alison, thank you SO much for your lovely kind words. It’s out on the 15th December available online or in Waterstones, Foyles etc. but I’ll have some copies I can sign before then. Emailing you now! x

  3. Ordered, Ordered! May toss in the occasional spirit just to shake it up-as no doubt they’ll make extra-special cocktails too. I(Did I miss something?) n the meantime, the perfect soon-to-be teen stocking filler!

  4. Hi Helen, I was fortunate to join your session at Melrose Book Fayre a couple of years ago and would very much like a copy of your new book (signed if possible). How do I go about it?

    • Hi Maggie, how lovely to hear from you! Loved Melrose always…just drop me an email (knackered mother @ gmail dot com) with details and I’ll sign and send you a copy x
