PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Dry January has become a thing and for various reasons, a lot of people have decided to keep that vibe going, cutting out the booze. But you don't have to completely give up the sophistication and sociability of a cocktail.

In this week's Top 6, Action News' Jessica Boyington sips on hand-crafted, zero-proof beverages that taste just like the real deal.

HARPER'S GARDEN - Center City

Center City's Harper's Garden is best known for its seasonally changing menu with inventive cocktails, gourmet salads, and burgers...all made with thoughtful and locally sourced ingredients. The juices and syrups are made right in-house too, which means you're getting the freshest mocktails around. Pair one then with some salty parmesan fries or their 13 Spice Wings.

Mocktails I Loved:

-Plum Chai Palmer

-Blackberry Ginger Soda

WILDER - Rittenhouse

A bright neon sign off Sansom Street will lead you to Wilder, an American restaurant with some Italian influence on the menu. They specialize in entertaining groups of all sizes with their eclectic decor and lively atmosphere. Come during brunch for the chicken and waffles, or spring for some pizza or pasta at dinner, the Malfadine Alla Vodka being the most popular.

Mocktails I Loved:

-Doctor's Orders (Tea, Lemon, Honey, Ginger)

-Berries & Cream (Strawberry, Pepita, Sunflower, Lemon)

-Bitter Symphony (Alcohol-Free Negroni)
