Normally you would not find a Mocktail recipe in our Cancer-Kicking! Kitchen, but 2020 has hardly been normal. There are antioxidants in fruit, 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, and I will keep these going every month until Covid is a thing of the past. 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 Parade Punch Mocktail. This recipe is close to my heart because it reminds me of the 4th of July celebrations we have had at my parents house for the past 40+ years. Every year, friends and family gather together for the local 10K race, followed by sky divers and then a parade. The whole thing has a small town feel to it despite the big city around us, and the Parade Punch is always part of the celebrations and it never disappoints.
