The holidays are a time to celebrate and that doesn't have to include alcohol. This is one of my favorite fall mocktail recipes.
I realize that since it is only September 8th--the holidays are still a ways off. But, it doesn't really feel like that to me. The grocery stores are filled with great fall fruits and veggies, like apples and pumpkin and with school just starting it feels like those fall holidays are just around the corner.
I haven't been drinking much in the past year and don't plan to start over the holidays. But, it is nice to be sipping on something festive when everyone else is. This is a super simple mocktail recipe for any holiday get-together.
Here's what we have:
-a cinnamon sugar rimmed glass: easy to omit if you don't do sugar
-apple cider: try to find something local to you for the best flavor
-ginger kombucha: for a little kick
-splash of orange juice: for your Vitamin C
I highly suggest you add this holiday mocktail recipe to your repertoire. Your guests and your body will thank you!
Although I prepared this one cold, it would be just as good as a warm drink.

- In a shallow bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Dip the rim into the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
