Clean eating mocktails

Clean eating mocktails

It’s almost Christmas so my whole family is getting very excited about the extra treats and presents that will be coming their way very soon. I know myself how easy it is to get carried away when you’re surrounded by festive goodies at home and in the office, and everyone encourages you to ‘treat yourself’ throughout the day.

Going out for Christmas drinks or opening a bottle at home is another easy habit to slip into, and again, we often treat ourselves to more exciting drinks like Christmas cocktails to celebrate the party season. I would be the first to say that I love the fruity flavours in cocktails (pina colada somewhere on the beach is my favourite) but all that sugar and alcohol combined means I start giving in to cravings for foods I don’t usually eat, which doesn’t make me feel very good the next day! I don’t want to miss out though so I was really excited to hear from Feel Good Drinks who offered to send me some bottles and their tasty new mocktail menu and take a  part in their latest #SpreadFeelGoodness campaign, which is all about partying but still being health conscious.

The best thing about these is that the whole family can enjoy them together. I know my Sofia feels very grown up when she is holding her special drink just like mummy! We had a look at the menu together and she helped me choose which ones to try out.

The first one was The Marvellous Mojito which was 275ml of bubbly Cranberry and Lime Feel Good poured into a glass, half a lime squeezed on top, mint sprigs and decorated with raspberries. It was a beautiful colour as you can see and the raspberries gave it that little extra twist. The cranberry flavour instantly shouts “Christmas” so this one would be great for adults and children during Christmas lunch.
