Day 2: Mocktail Hour

We knew that one of the most difficult parts of the 30 day elimination challenge would be not drinking alcohol, and that Friday evening would probably be the hardest time. So, our first Friday on the plan, I mixed up some "mocktails." The fact that we also weren't eating sugar made things a bit challenging, but that's what creativity is for. I minced up some fresh ginger, zested and juiced a Meyer lemon, added those to sparkling water and mocktails managed. It was pretty tasty, with the ginger adding a very refreshing sweet heat. It would never be a substitute for that happy hour pint, but it was a fun and refreshing sipper.
