Stay nonalcoholic this Christmas with mocktails
When getting into the Christmas spirit it can be tempting to have a tipple too many. While the odd alcoholic beverage is fine, overdoing it - even if it is only for one day - can do permanent damage to your health, not to mention leave you feeling somewhat delicate the next day.
Rather than opting for alcohol, why not try your hand at making your own non-alcoholic cocktails? 'Mocktails' can taste amazing, being festive and are much healthier than their alcoholic alternatives. They are also perfect for family gatherings when you want to get children involved in the festivities.
