Normally you would not find a Mocktail recipe in our Cancer-Kicking! Kitchen, but 2020 has hardly been normal. There are antioxidants in citrus fruits, of course, but juices allow for rapid sugar absorption and insulin spikes whereas whole fruit consumption avoids those responses.

So while this recipe does not contain the amazing cancer-fighting ingredients we generally include in all of our other recipes, limiting your alcohol consumption is a big enough Cancer-Kicking! reason itself to include them. Not sure about the connection between alcohol and breast health? Read my blog post for all the details about why it matters during Covid (and after). And if you enjoy your wine or cocktail and don’t want to put that glass down, be sure to supplement with Cosmo Companion to counteract the negative health effects.

Now, on to our Cucumber Cooler Mocktail. I love this recipe on hot summer days when I just need something to cool down and water itself won’t do the trick. Sometimes you just need that extra flavor and this recipe does just that. Perfect for the weekend when you would otherwise reach for that Mojito or Pina Colada.

Ingredients

  • 5 slices of muddled cucumber

  • 1 oz of simple syrup

  • 1 oz of fresh lime juice

Instructions
