Five Festive Holiday Cocktails

To celebrate the holidays, I want to share with you my FAVORITE healthy cocktail hacks. Because we all know that while cocktails may seem like a good option, most are usually LOADED with sugars and sodas and syrup, ew. The actual alcohol is not too bad for you, (all in moderation of course)! In fact some alcohols have health benefits like heart health, soothing muscles/sore throats, and gut regulation.

Here are five of my favorite concoctions that help me be kind to my health.
