SURPRISE! Just for funsies, I’m sending you a bonus drink recipe! My friends, behold THE NO-JITO. It has all the refreshing aspects of a mojito with lime and mint, but without the inflammatory side effects.

Avoiding alcohol

It can be hard to avoid alcohol when everyone else seems to be having a good time with it, but boy, alcohol can be a big ol’ inflammation bomb. Having a few drink recipes in your back pocket can be helpful. No one has to know that your drink is dry.

Something I really like to do is to serve myself a mocktail in a pretty glass with all the garnishes. (I can’t remember where I got these particular glasses, but these Cosmopolitan Martini Glasses are similar.) There’s no reason whatsoever that a dry drink has to be boring! Make it beautiful. Enjoy the experience. Make it a treat. In this way, you may not feel quite so deprived.

And hey, you’ll also be avoiding all the nasty side effects, e.g. headache, belly ache, joint aches, or sleepless nights. Just a lovely, refreshing drink. Ahhhhh… 😌
