4 tropical mocktail recipes

Going for drinks with friends, but not keen on drinking alcohol? In these instances, you may find yourself reaching for a cocktail or glass of wine simply to “fit in”, or to appease those around you. Other times, you might want something with a little more flavour or fruitiness than a basic soda water and lime. Regardless, these 4 tropical mocktail recipes have you covered for all these occasions!

The truth is, alcohol can interfere with your health and nutrition goals in various ways – particularly if you overdo it. Alcohol “takes over” your body’s metabolism when you drink, meaning your body essentially pauses its burning of fats, protein and carbs in favour of metabolising alcohol when it’s in your system. This can interfere with fat loss goals. Alcohol can also encourage poor food decisions – because we’ve all reached for a greasy burger after a big night of drinking, even if that wasn’t in the plan! Plus, if you’re feeling dusty or hungover the day following a drinking session, you’re likely to experience increased hunger levels, again struggle to make healthy food choices, and you’ll likely skip the early morning gym session you had planned too. So while it’s completely fine to enjoy a few drinks with friends sometimes, do so in moderation – and save these delicious mocktails for those days you feel like giving the hangover and its associated side effects a miss!
