Who doesn’t love a good happy hour after a long day at work? Unfortunately, with work the next day and your goal of trying to stay healthy, traditional cocktails just aren’t on the menu.
Let’s go over some healthy drink options and swaps you can make so you can still have a relaxing happy hour experience without the regret and headache the next day.
1. Mocktails Instead Of Cocktails
Instead of a traditional happy hour drink made with alcohol, try swapping out the alcohol and making it a mocktail instead. You can use fresh fruits, herbs, and sparkling water. It’s a good opportunity for you to experiment with different flavors like a virgin mojito, berry lemonade, or cucumber mint cooler.
2. Sparkling Water
Plain or flavored sparkling water is a zero-calorie, refreshing alternative to sugary sodas or carbonated cocktails you would typically order during happy hour. You can squeeze some fresh lemon, lime, or orange juice into a glass of sparkling water and add a few fresh fruit slices as a garnish.
3. Coconut Water
Not a fan of sparkling water? Try swapping out alcohol for coconut water in your favorite drinks. Coconut water is a natural source of electrolytes and can be a hydrating alternative to sugary drinks and fruit juices. Coconut water is a great option because it adds a natural sweetness to any drink and goes well with various flavors like fresh mint and lime.
4. Herbal Teas
Say no to the sugary cocktails and try out a variety of different herbal teas, hot or iced. You will find they come in a ton of delicious flavors and offer various health benefits.
5. All Phenoms
