After a long day, it’s tempting to hit a happy hour or head home and mix up a cocktail. The growing trend towards non-alcoholic options along with studies around the impact of alcohol, has given us more reasons to find great alternative options to unwind. Here are some tasty alternatives to help you skip the cocktails and indulge in some healthier stress relief.
1. Herbal Tea
Now we’re not talking about your grandmother’s chamomile here. In recent years, herbal tea has gotten a facelift. This is thanks to a renewed interest in how the natural properties of herbs, flowers, and mushrooms can support our health. Herbal teas now support brain health with nootropics and stress relief with adaptogens. Some really amazing options can make you feel great.
Juice has also gotten a facelift in recent years. Rather than just sipping on some store-bought orange juice, consider making a fresh pressed juice. Don’t be afraid to experiment either. Fruits pair wonderfully with vegetables, herbs, and even spices. We love funky combinations like chile lime pineapple, hibiscus orange vanilla, and strawberry mint lemonade. Making a juice from scratch has the same feel as a well-crafted cocktail, just without the booze.
3. All Phenoms Functional Water
We recommend Superboost in Sparkling Blueberry Mint. Stress can have a very negative impact on our immune systems. We can combat the damage by providing our immune system with the key nutrients it needs to stay strong. Superboost contains immune system support with vitamin C, zinc, and elderberry. It also has probiotics for gut health. Made with coconut water and a dash of pink Himalayan salt, it will not only hydrate you, it tastes amazing!
Mocktails are great because they are as luxurious as a cocktail but without the alcohol. They are also very aesthetic. All Phenoms also taste great in a mocktail. Try adding your favorite iced herbal tea or punch. Then add herbs or cut-up fruits for garnish. We love making a cooler mixing equal parts Superboost and sparkling limeade and garnishing it with some mint, fresh blueberries, and 2 drops of Meyer lemon bitters. Serve over ice and you have a great way to unwind.
These four options will help you unwind and indulge after a stressful day. The best part is they are so good, you won’t miss the alcohol. Make sure to try all our flavors so you can craft the perfect All Phenoms mocktail. We make it simple with our variety pack. Enjoy!
