Summer is right around the corner! And you know what else is…Cinco de Mayo! And that means margaritas and chips and dip and tacos and all the things!! I legit love Cinco de Mayo. I’m not sure why…maybe it’s my love for a spicy margarita or the endless amount of chips I can eat. Either way, it’s a fun holiday.
As of right now, I am currently on the Whole30 though! And that means no alcohol. But I’m totally okay with that as there are a bunch of fun alternatives you can do to make you feel like you are part of the fun, like a mocktail! When I first heard the term mocktail, I had no idea what it meant. After a little research, I figured out it was a alcohol free beverage!
You can pretty much make any cocktail recipe a mocktail with a few substitutions. You can also get creative and add whatever you like to them!
To be honest, I wasn’t about mocktails when I discovered them a few years ago. Why would you want to drink a fun drink without alcohol. Well times have changed and I am embracing them more and more. I don’t need alcohol to have fun and if you have specific health and fitness goals, alcohol just adds on excess calories and carbs that could be hindering getting to your goals.
Now I’m not saying you can’t enjoy it every once in awhile, but you don’t have to be drinking it every weekend (like I used to do). I like to preach moderation and balance with everything in life.
