The mocktail–exotic, beautiful, healthy and flavorful!
It is lovely to stand around at a party, sipping a colorful, sweet drink from your elegant glass, without worrying about making it out the door on two feet, or leaving in the same clothes you had on when you arrived. After a sound sleep, you awaken refreshed, rehydrated and with your memory of the evening intact. Ahhh!
The mocktail is not an imitation cocktail. It was inspired by British punch which was served in a large bowl and made of fruit juice, spices, and other flavors, then spiked with alcohol (still a common practice). Take away the alcohol, headaches, dry mouth, and add ice–You have a fun and tasty mocktail.
Avaera Coconut Water and Avaera Cardamom Coconut Water added to a mocktail has the additional benefit of hydrating us during the warm summer months. Enjoy these tasty mocktails this summer.
