When you cut alcohol out of your life you quickly find that there aren’t many options at social events. Sure, non-alcoholic drinks such as coffee, tea and pop are usually served but let’s get real, if you’re like me you’ve always associated special drinks with having fun.
I’m happy to introduce my newest endeavor here on Sober Julie Doing Life, I aim to provide fabulous non-alcoholic mocktail recipes to the World!!!
Once a week I will provide recipes for Marvelous Mocktails, these will be drinks we’ve compiled here at our house and actually enjoy!!
As a host you must provide alternatives for people who don’t drink alcohol, there are countless reasons why people abstain and having a non-alcoholic choice will allow the guest to feel included in your event.
