The holiday season is associated with constant snacking and alcoholic beverages. However, this time can be difficult for a person who is recovering. Attending countless dinner parties and gatherings and refusing a drink every time may not be to your liking and cause you to break your resolve, requiring professional help in the form of a quick detox.
One of those ways is the choice of soft drinks. If someone is hosting, you can offer these drinks to your guests and set an example. Also, if you go to someone’s house, you can ask them to make these Non-Alcoholic Drinks since they are easy to prepare.
Here is a list of soft drinks to get you started.
- The cold drink can be made with soda and lemon wedges. You can add some sugar for a sweet taste, and for a salty touch, you can choose rock salt. Top with mint leaves and a few ice cubes, and voila.
- Orange punch. Add orange-cherry jelly with sugar to boiling water. After boiling, add orange juice. Freeze overnight and serve the next day.
- Sparkling pear punch. The drink can be made by adding pear, lemon, sugar, and ginger ale. It can be garnished with freshly cut pear slices.
- Glazed lemonade. Mix lemon juice and sugar in a blender. Add vanilla ice cream. Garnish with fresh lemon wedges and serve.
- Watermelon lemonade. Mix the watermelon pieces with the sugar and lemon juice. Serve with lime wedges, mint, and ice.
- Purple punch. Add mint, blueberries, and lemon wedges to a glass. Cover with Red Bull purple edition and ice. Enjoy!
- Citrus Strawberry, orange juice, sparkling water, and lime juice. Add some ice. Cover the glass with powdered sugar. To do this, sprinkle some powdered sugar on a plate. Moisten the rim of the glass where you want to drink a cocktail. Drain excess water and roll in powdered sugar. Pour over the mocktail and serve with lemon wedges.
- Carbonated Honey Lemonade. Mix some sugar and water in a pitcher. Add a tablespoon of honey and stir again. Add lime juice, soda and stir. Serve with ice.
Drinking alcohol can have a lasting impact on a person’s life. It can lead to drunk driving, accidents, relationship problems, financial problems, performance problems at school, college, or work, and violence. Excessive alcohol consumption can also damage important organs and lead to mental disorders. Therefore, a person needs to try to abstain.
However, not everyone can follow self-help strategies to stop drinking. Therefore, they must seek support from professional detox centers. The first step in quitting alcohol is often a detox, in which the body cleanses itself of toxins accumulated from years of alcohol abuse. At the same time, the body is enriched with essential nutrients to prepare it for the subsequent treatment program.
