Christmas Mocktail (AIP/Paleo)

Christmas Mocktail (AIP/Paleo)

If you are in the full elimination phase of AIP one of the challenges over the holidays can be a lack of fun beverages. You might have to attend parties that are full of punch, eggnog, and other alcoholic beverages that you are trying to avoid and many “mocktails” can leave you feeling less than impressed. This recipe on the other hand is so pretty and fun that it will be hard not to feel fancy and Christmasy after a glass. I definitely recommend serving it in a fancy glass for the full effect!

If you are looking for more AIP holiday beverages take a look at my wassail recipe, cranberry ginger mocktail and my salted caramel hot “chocolate”.
