Are winter drinks popular during the holidays?

The holiday season is a time to gather with friends and family inside. Many people enjoy spending time with their loved ones during this time of year, and often participate in traditions that are associated with the holiday season, such as decorating the home, watching holiday movies, and especially baking and mixing drinks while staying cozy inside.

There are many different cocktails and mocktails that are crafted around this time of year, often made with seasonal ingredients, such as pomegranate. Winter drinks are fun to serve at holiday parties and gatherings around the holidays.

What is a good alternative to soda and alcohol?

Depending on your lifestyle choices, you may be looking for soda alternatives or non-alcoholic drinks that can be both refreshing and enjoyable with friends. Some alternative options in place of soda and alcohol include water, flavored water (try our Water Boosters), unsweetened iced tea, sparkling water, and fruit juice. Benefits from drinking these is that they can provide hydration and essential nutrients without the added sugar and calories often associated with soda or alcohol. It is important to choose a healthy alternative when maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet, especially during the holidays when you are surrounded by delicious meals and desserts.

There is no reason to miss out on enjoying a delicious beverage. Mocktails are becoming increasingly more popular to enjoy with friends.

What is the meaning of mocktail? How does it refer to cocktails?

A mocktail is a non-alcoholic mixed drink. It is a drink that contains no alcohol but is typically made with the same type of ingredients that are used in cocktails, such as fruit juice, soda, and bitters. The name "mocktail" is a combination of the words "mock" and "cocktail," and is used to describe a drink that looks and tastes like a cocktail but does not contain any alcohol. Many people enjoy mocktails to enjoy the flavors and experience of a mixed drink without the effects of alcohol.

We have a pomegranate cocktail recipe using our green tea, that is hydrating, tasty, and best of all, non-alcoholic.
