About the Book:

Mocktails & More is the ultimate survival handbook for the hectic Holiday Season!

Julie Elsdon-Height, also know as Sober Julie on social media, is a humorous woman who shoots straight from the hip, sharing about her life of sobriety and looking to experience all of the joys life has to offer.

With Mocktails & More, Julie shares her favorite 24 Mocktail recipes each displayed with professional photography and tidbits of inspiration delivered in her humorous style.

And if this wasn’t enough, Julie has once again decided to step out of the box and invited Molson Coors Canada to come on board providing tips for making Responsible Choices over the Holidays. Molson Coors Canada’s brewmasters have reviewed Julie’s recipes and modified a select few to present Cocktail alternatives.

Mocktails & More is wonderfully thought-out, well written and will inspire you as you entertain over the Holidays.

My Review:

I rarely drink alcohol anymore and I always feel left out when I go to parties or functions and the only thing I can really find to drink is water or pop. I’m envious of my friends with their delicious looking fancy alcoholic drinks, but know that if I have one I will pay for it the next day. I get really sick when I when I drink alcohol so I don’t do it that often. 

Julie Elsdon-Height (aka Sober Julie) knows exactly what I mean! She saw that their was a lack of selection at parties and decided to write a book dedicated to fancy beverages that people like me can enjoy.  Mocktails & More has a selection of 24 creative drink recipes varying from sweet to sour and everything in between! I had a look through and the ingredients weren’t crazy and would be things I can find at our local grocery store.

Along with the recipes you can find a sprinkling of Sober Julie throughout. I subscribe to her blog and love her humour  and thoughful posts. If you don’t read her blog, you should! And she is a fellow Canadian!

Of course, I had to try out a recipe! I made the Candy Cane Warmers which is the ultimate creamy & sweet white hot chocolate with a hint of peppermint. It’s so simple to make and goes down so easy. It’s really yummy! 

Candy Cane Warmer

Other recipes I plan to try are Christmas Chai, Iced Coffee Nutcracker, Mistletoe Mojito, Safe Sex on the Snow and Julie’s recipe for Homemade Eggnog.
