3 Mocktail Recipes for New Year’s Eve

It’s mocktail time!

Today we are whipping up some delicious cocktails that mimic the taste of a cocktail without the alcohol. The push towards healthy, yummy things to consume is not just on plates. It also happens in glasses!

Fruits, vegetables, fresh herbs… All of them mixed to deliver us some exciting flavors.

Taking care of yourself obviously involves our consumption choices. We have never needed and wanted to heal our body and mind so much as we move into 2021. And for that, a mocktail is the perfect choice when you want to enjoy a fun drink but might want to skip on the alcohol.

Alcohol-free drinks have proven to satisfy a large audience who no longer hesitate to switch to “mocktail” mode after two cocktails. This allows us to limit our alcohol consumption if we wish, without sacrificing the pleasure of taste.

The great thing about mocktails is that you don’t have to drink them in moderation, and you won’t end up with a headache the next morning! Of course, you can always add your alcohol of choice to any of these three recipes as well.

Let’s get to it!
