Virgin Sangria Mocktail | Thyme + JOY

2018 was the year that I decided to stop drinking. It was never something that was out of control for me, but as I got older I REALLY hated the way any drink made me feel. Every time I would consume even one alcoholic beverage I would wake up at 1 am like clock work with heart burn and night sweats keeping me awake making me feel like I’ve lived another life before my alarm went off.
Those kinds of feelings really take a toll on the next day!
Since we did the January Whole30 and drinking was out, I decided I wouldn’t have a touch of alcohol unless it was worth ruining the next day. I’m pleased to say that so far there has been no good reason to ruin a perfectly good next day.
I still love the aesthetic of holding a drink in my hand and the crispness of something cold and bubbly. Usually I settle for some kombucha but I’ve been on a mocktail kick which I’m not mad about!
This virgin sangria mocktail is made with pomegranate juice and some simple fruits for a cocktail-like flavor without all the heart burn and fatigue. It also uses some plain sparkling water. Feel free to use an orange or lime flavored seltzer or sparkling water for an extra flavor kick!
