Cooling Refreshing Mocktails


Have you had enough of the sizzling heat yet? Don’t despair! I’ve created some cooling, refreshing mocktails for you to toast the end of Summer, and welcome Autumn. I predict Summer is going to be slow to relinquish power, and we can expect a few more hot, muggy days, so what better way to celebrate the Autumn Equinox. And besides keeping you cool and hydrated, these yummy, non-alcoholic beverages are loaded with health benefits. Cheers! And please share my blog! You can comment at the end of the blog page. I love to get feedback
