10 healthy mocktail recipes for the holidays

10 Healthy Mocktails for the holidays

The holiday season is here again. Happy hours, dinner parties and festivities fill up our calendars. This is a lot of fun, but it also means lots of drinking and hangovers. If you are like me and sometimes prefer non-alcoholic beverages, you’ll be delighted with the healthy mocktail recipes I selected for you.

Alcohol is a toxin that must be filtered by our liver. During the holidays, people often consume an excessive amount of alcohol and have to pay the price later. Weight gain, low immunity, decreased energy levels, and digestive issues are the common side effects of the holiday season.

So why not trade the usual booze with a fizzy and colourful drink that will not make you ill? Mocktails are delicious and refreshing, and do not contain any alcohol. They are super easy to make, and they can also be served to children and pregnant women.

Here are 10 healthy mocktail recipes to keep you in the christmas spirit.
