Cranberry Moscow Mule Mocktail

1 serving Prep time: 5 min

Enjoy a drink over the holidays without the alcohol or loads of extra sugar. This delicious Cranberry Moscow Mule Mocktail has the tangy, spicy taste of lime and ginger, along with probiotic-rich kombucha. 

Lime juice is rich in vitamin C which increases white blood cell production for a robust immune response. Lime juice and ginger both stimulate the digestive system, making this drink a great aperitif.

Cranberries and basil offer polyphenols and other antioxidants to offset oxidative stress and support optimal health. 

With ingredients like this, you can truly drink to good health for the coming year. 

Wishing you health and happiness,

Dialing in our fluid-to-electrolyte ratio is crucial for sleep, energy, performance, and so many biological functions—but typical electrolyte drinks aren’t designed for the challenges of cold, dry weather. That’s why I’m really enjoying staying warm with LMNT this winter. Their new LMNT Chocolate Medley packs are designed to be enjoyed hot, combining their science-backed electrolyte formula with the cozy flavors of Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Chai, and Chocolate Raspberry. They’re made without sugar and other dodgy ingredients, can really help counter the fluid loss from dry air and perspiring under heavy layers, and are only available for a limited time. Give them a try, risk-free, and get a FREE LMNT Sample Pack when you use this link.
