Christmas is a time of celebration. No matter what is happening in your city, or around the world. It’s a time to be with your loved ones, whether that be face to face or through digital technologies.
It’s a time to share the joy of just being here, and thankful for what we have – and to share that thanks with those who need it most of it.
Depending where you are living right now, parties may or may not be on the cards for Christmas. For Sydney-siders, parties are on (with some restrictions ), which means it’s time to start organising some healthy alternatives for your traditional Christmas recipes.
And mocktails (alcohol-free cocktails) should absolutely be on the menu.
These recipe by Kate, are the perfect solution for celebrating this holiday season without alcohol.
They are delicious and full of healthy ingredients, like Young Living’s NingXia ZyngTM NingXia Red® and a few drops of culinary essential oils to make the flavour really pop! If yo do not have any NingXia ZyngTM on hand, substitute with your favourite sparkling juice.
If you’ll be celebrating the holidays late into the night, here’s a drink to get you through the evening. This fizzy delight contains wolfberries, white tea leaf extract, and green tea extract for a boost of crash-free energy. Whether you’re staying up to wrap presents or ringing in the new year, throw back a couple of these zesty zingers to feel instantly refreshed.
Based on the trendy Moscow Mule, this refreshing mocktail is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next holiday dinner party. Ginger beer, which is a non-alcoholic carbonated beverage similar to ginger ale, lends the drink a snappy flavor with a hint of spice. If you’re hosting a large group of people, you can easily multiply the recipe to make a big batch. For a quick conversion that serves eight, use cups instead of ounces for the first two ingredients and add eight drops of Rosemary essential oil for an herby kick.
In need of a drink that goes well with Christmas brunch? Try our twist on the classic Bloody Mary! Boosted with culinary essential oils and easily customisable to different palates, our version is fun for the whole family. Serve it up with a variety of trimmings so everyone can garnish to their heart’s content. Some of our top picks are celery sticks, olives, lemon wedges, pickles, and jalapeños.
YL tip: The toothpick method allows you to get a more subtle flavour with culinary essential oils. Simply dip a toothpick in the oil and swirl through your ingredients.
Don’t want to be mixing up mocktails all night? Skip the hassle and break out the punch bowl instead. The beauty of this big-batch drink is that you can make it ahead of time, leaving you free to mingle with guests. Our fruity drink packs a *punch* in antioxidants and essential oils. Sweet, fruity, and delicious, our recipe gets your party going with a bang!
Another batch drink that’s easy to prepare is hot apple cider. In this recipe, we used culinary essential oil instead of dried spices for stronger and purer flavour. Fun fact: A steaming mug of cider is the perfect remedy to cold, wintry days. Serve it after a day of sledding or an evening of caroling to warm up guests from the inside out.
