Help me replace my evening drink with something similar, but not. I very much enjoy dark beer and red wine, but I'm looking for options that aren't alcohol. Something sip-able.

I'm not a heavy drinker, but I find that I'm drinking more than I'd like to. Basically, if I'm out with friends, I'm probably a 2 beer guy. On a date, we'll probably split a bottle of wine. I'm ok with that.
The problem is when I'm at home, alone. I still enjoy having something to sip on. I'd like to find a beverage without alcohol that I can enjoy the same way I'd enjoy a dark beer or glass of wine. Something to sip over a period of time. For example, if I were to pour myself a glass of wine, I could easily sip that glass for an hour, especially if I'm watching a movie or working on a project.
I'm not worried about becoming an alcoholic or anything like that. I've probably been drunk fewer than five times in the last decade. It's just that I'd rather not be a 2 drinks a night, every night, guy. I really do like to drink - to taste - to sip - to savor - and, for evenings when I'm at home, I'd like to have options that aren't alcohol.
