Happy Friday ! I hope it’s been a rather quiet and uneventful week for you as we wrap up the year.

Thanks so much for reading this newsletter. We've been writing this thing since 2017 and we wouldn't be here without you and our lovely community of readers. There's so much more in store for you in 2023, but for now, we’ve rounded up some of our readers’ favorite newsletters from 2022, down below.

Happy new year! (We’re all spending NYE in a sparkly outfit at home, right?)

— Alisha & the GNI team

Thinking about trying out a dry (or just dry-er) January?

Then you’ll want to get acquainted with cult-fave non-alcoholic spirits brand, Ghia. Just because you’re taking a pause or a total step back from alcohol doesn’t mean you don’t deserve something delicious and complex to sip on at dinner. Ghia keeps you clear-eyed and high-minded with no alcohol, added sugar, or artificial ingredients—just botanicals. 

Some of Ghia’s elevated (and delicious) ingredients include: Riesling grape juice, lemon balm extract, yuzu juice, elderflower extract, and fig concentrate for a well-rounded sip. Drink it as you would your favorite aperitif—shaken with citrus, splashed into bubbles, or stirred on the rocks and then garnished with your favorite herb and zest of choice. Or, opt for one of Ghia’s ready-to-drink, canned spritzes which balance the nuanced, slightly bitter aperitif with bubbly soda.

If you’ve been meaning to try Ghia or been thinking about a life with less alcohol, take 20% off your first order with code “GHIAxGNI" or get 1 month free when you sign up for 6 months of Ghia.
