If you read our blog you know we’re huge Thursday enthusiasts because it marks the start of our weekend with a homemade cocktail! Making a drink or having a glass of wine at home saves money – which we love just as much!
This week though, we want to spend a little time talking about the beauty of a ‘mocktail’ – a drink with no alcohol! It is nice to give your liver a break, as well as your wallet and waistline.. fixing a drink with no booze cuts back on what you’re spending and of course, calories.
But what struck me most about this Thursday’s theme of ‘Mocktails’ what how little I missed the alcohol! Sometimes I think we may order a drink at a bar or restaurant simply out of habit when it’s not even really what we’re craving. So try some of our recipes below the next time you go to fix yourself a drink or order at the bar! Your health and your savings will benefit!
Here is the video, with our go-to recipes below!
