Here's the thing: I'm a social drinker, and I love nothing more than letting loose with my friends, especially after a long work week. But as I get into my late twenties, I just can't handle a second glasses of wine like I used to. What this means for my impending thirties, I'm not sure… But in the meantime, you can imagine my excitement when I heard about a brand making alcohol-free beverages specifically for socializing. Among Kin Euphorics's offerings are the High Rhode, a concentrated elixir for adding to juices or sodas, and the Kin Spritz, a carbonated canned drink, that each boost your mood and your brain. Drawing from rhodiola rosea and nootropics like caffeine and tyrosine, these drinks balance cortisol (lowering your body's stress) and boost serotonin and dopamine (the feel-good neurotransmitters), creating a really light and energetic sensation without any of the… less than glamourous elements of drinking alcohol.

And honestly, the best part to me is that Kin Euphorics drinks taste like their own thing: they're not trying to mimic the flavor of alcohol or mask what they are. They're herbaceous and funky and tart, and they lend themselves well to incorporating additional flavors like citrus, ginger beer, pomegranate juice, and, for the evening brew, milk. Oh yeah, Kin Euphorics's PM offering! Dream Light is a blend of melatonin (the sleep signal to your brain), calming reishi mushroom caps, white passion flower for reducing restlessness, and a mix of botanicals (warm spices and chili) to regulate your digestion while you sleep. Mixing a shot of Dream Light into a cup of warm milk has replaced my bedtime camomile routine, and I'm not upset about it. Keep scrolling to shop the Kin Euphorics drinks that suit your needs.

Copy Editor, Branded Content

Aralyn Beaumont joined Who What Wear as the copy editor for branded content after a career in food media. Years of poring over intricate recipes with a fine-tooth comb and working with high-profile chefs has prepared her well for working with fashion's top brands while honoring Who What Wear's voice. Her background as a research editor makes her a finicky editor who will probably care too much about making sure all copy is as factually accurate and aligned with the house style guide as can be. Maybe it's because she's a Gemini, but her personal style is impossible to pin down: One day you'll see her in a turtleneck sweater tucked into a midi skirt with heeled boots, and the next, she'll be wearing mom jeans, a white Hanes tee, and classic Vans. At the end of the day, her style reflects her various moods. Sometimes it will be feminine and elegant, and others it will be grungy or androgynous. Certain things will always remain constant, though. She'll forever be on the hunt for the perfect pair of high-waisted jeans.
