The Proxies Guide to Dry January: Week 4

Week four of Dry Jan is upon us! The lack of sunlight up here in Toronto has made the first three weeks feel like an eternity, but I’ve been compensating by making my drinking a little more fun of late. No more nights of Lacroix or water—we’re pulling out the fancy stemware every night, and even mixing up some simple drinks with those dusty bar tools. 

This past week I turned to some of our earliest sparkling Proxies, checking in on bottles of Bulle and Tart stashed away at our production facility. I warmed up with our latest big red—stay tuned for more on this one very soon— and a bottle of our André Mack collab, AHM paired with some old-school spaghetti and meat sauce. I played mixologist with fresh fruits, bitters, and some fun ingredients from our friends at Acid League and their much-lauded cocktail kit from a year ago, and I even turned some still Proxies into spritzes with some soda water, Wilderton Bittersweet Aperitivo, and the zest from a sumo citrus. Side note: sumos, or dekopons (shout out to an old limited edition Proxies blend, Dekoponzi Scheme) are the best oranges around and they’re just coming into season—find some and thank me later. And, yes, I had some wine too with a can of an unnamed and amazing orange wine that might just have something to do with a future release over here.

So for your week four, embrace the fun and the fancy at once. Pull out the Zaltos, mix up a spritz, warm up with some red and red sauce, and just enjoy what’s in your glass. Summon your inner André Mack and pair your Proxies with chips (you should know that I love chips so much that for my birthday we did a blind tasting of 18 different crazy chip flavors). And mark the last weekend of the month by making a reservation somewhere special be it casual and delicious like one of our newest partners and longtime favorite, Roberta’s in NY or the amazing Anajak Thai in LA, or the fanciest of them all like The French Laundry, Alinea, Boka, or Oriole.

See you next week for one last installment. In the meantime, we have a lot more news coming this week including an amazing giveaway with countless NA brands, another chance to win dinner on us, and more.
