Today I have a little secret to share with you.
It has everything to do about holidays and drinks.
Can you guess what it is?
The secret is that I have the biggest love-hate relationship with any drink that’s spiked with alcohol.
** Please note that this post may contain affiliate links which means that I can receive a small payment if you make a purchase through my links.
I love the taste or red wine, but I find that even just a few sips can give me an awful headache and make me feel sick all through the next day.
I believe in eating healthy food as much as possible and anything that makes me feel so sick and miserable the next day can’t possibly be healthy or good for you.
The difficult thing about this is that I often feel left out during the holidays, when everyone is enjoying warm wine, hot punch, or tons of spiked cocktails.
I find that just raising my glass with water or juice to toast feels a bit lackluster.
Can you relate to this?
If the answer is yes, I have some very good news coming your way!
This year I decided to play around with mocktails so that I can actually enjoy drinking something special during the holidays and without risking a potential hangover waiting to happen the next day.
All of these mocktails are also fairly healthy and made with clean ingredients, so you can truly sip on guilt-free!
I’ve been trying out lots and lots of different recipes and I’m happy to report that I have gathered quite the collection of delicious, festive drinks.
From mock sangria and margaritas, to non-alcoholic cinderellas and mojitos, I’ve found the perfect recipes for whatever healthy mocktail your heart desires.
Here is my list of the top 10 non-alcoholic cocktails you can enjoy this holiday season.

The Cinderella is an easy mix of three juices, grenadine, and ginger ale. The fruit juices create a tart base that is mellowed by the sweetness of the grenadine and you can adjust it to make it as sweet as you like.

It is a twist on the Virgin Sunrise, with peach instead of orange juice and a little soda added to liven up the drink.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
