Paleo, Whole30 Cranberry Apple & Rosemary Mocktail December 8, 2018

Mocktails are the perfect addition to any diet, especially when completing a round of Whole30. I love developing tasty mocktails that mimic the real thing without all the sugar and unwanted ingredients. Fancy Mocktails always save me when I have hit a wall and need a little something extra.

This mocktail also makes a great date night or party drink. Simply add tequila, white rum or bourbon to make it a full cocktail that still lacks in sugar but not tastes. Sometimes even if I’m living healthy, I need a real cocktail. I compromise by keeping the sugar and carb count in my mixers low so I can enjoy adding alcohol on occasion.

If I am on a Whole30, can I still add the fruit juices?

Yes. While completing a Whole30, fruit juice in moderation is compliant and acceptable. While it would be awesome to drink a whole bottle of apple juice, that, however, is frowned upon and not recommended. It is totally acceptable to use a small amount in cooking and in beverages.

How is this mocktail considered Keto?

This mocktail would be considered Keto due to the low amount of fruit juice that is added. Calorie-free sparkling water is the main ingredient while the fruit juice is minimal just to add flavor. If you are tired of water and needing something else to hit the spot, I would recommend this drink over a diet soda or some other drink that is carb free but filled with artificial sweeteners. This may have a few amounts of carbs but is a much wiser choice compared to the other acceptable Keto drinks.
