Cheers to Drink Up Week and for those who are looking to steer clear of alcohol, we’re sharing 10 non-alcoholic options around the Holy City.

Camellias | Hotel Bennett, 404 King St.
Grab your besties and head to this pink champagne bar — arguably one of the most picturesque spots in town — to sip on non-spirited cocktails including Mint To Be, with Amethyst Blueberry Mint, fresh lemon, blackberry, and mint.

The Watch Rooftop Kitchen & Spirits | The Restoration Hotel, 75 Wentworth St.
Take in the Charleston skyline view at this rooftop restaurant with a zero-proof drink in hand. We’ve got our eyes on the Slowburn Marg featuring grapefruit, jalapeno, and lime.

Minero | 3140 Maybank Hwy., Johns Island
Minero offers a Margarita Zero made with sparkling water and a Paloma Zero with grapefruit soda — because who says you can’t have your favorite spirits turned spiritless?
