Merry mocktails

29 Nov 2023

Keen to get into the festive spirit, minus the booze? Here, founder of Sober Mates Sam Wilson (pictured) shares her two alcohol-free recipes that are easy to make and perfect for summer.

Sam Wilson has been sober for almost four years and says she is “just as social as ever”.

“During my sober journey and socialising, what has made it easier for me is rocking up to a social event with my alcohol-free beverages or, even better, making my mocktails at the [event].

“It helps to bring in conversations around choosing to drink less, and having a mocktail in your hand helps when others are drinking.”

Here, Sam shares her two favourite festive mocktail recipes for those who are keen to cut back or cut out the booze.
