I enjoy the occasional alcoholic drink just like most other people. But there are times when I avoid alcohol, such as while cleansing. And let’s face it, we all get tired of drinking nothing but plain water all the time. For this reason, I enjoy creating different mocktails. Combining various spices, fruits, and even vegetables often yields a refreshing, festive drink without cheating on your cleanse.
Entertaining? It’s simple to mix up a pitcher of this Ginger Lime Mocktail for everyone!
