The holidays are a wonderful time of year to celebrate with friends and family. During these celebrations we often find alcoholic beverages readily available. Studies have shown a link between alcohol and an increased risk for breast cancer development. While drinking alcohol does not mean you will develop breast cancer, it just means that there is an elevated risk for developing it.
Whether you are going through treatment for cancer or are being more aware of your health, Colleen Takagishi, Oncology Nutritionist at NorthShore, knows that mocktails are a great way to mindfully partake in the fun.
This recipe can easily be made ahead of time to bring to a party or to check off your to-do list. Ginger beer is a great mixer because it is naturally sweet and bursting full of flavor.
Recipe makes 1 serving
Tip: Strain the muddled mint leaves and remove them. Replace with a few extra mint leaves along with garnished lime wedges for extra flavor.
