Whether you’re new to the AIP or have been navigating your special diet for a while, it can be disheartening to have to face the holiday season without being able to drink. Everyone else is loosening up, having fun, and you feel stuck on the sidelines.

But, in my experience, indulging in an adult beverage has never been worth the pain it causes my body. With cramping, migraines, and nausea on the table… well, alcohol starts to look a lot less appealing. But that’s what mocktails are for!

With the addition of cherries and sparkling water instead of vodka, these Virgin Cherry Moscow Mules will slake your thirst and make it look like you’re part of the party… without any of the nasty side effects. To your health!

I recommend making your ginger beer at home as few store-bought brands are AIP compliant. Here is my ginger beer recipe. A great alternative is ginger kombucha.
