Whether you just finished a luxury detox program or you have been sober for years now, the holidays can be a bit overwhelming for a recovering alcoholic.
There are plenty of end-of-the-year parties and even more opportunities to drink.

Don’t worry; at Seaside Palm Beach we are sharing our favorite virgin holiday drinks so that you can still enjoy a special holiday-themed beverage.

The holidays are a time for celebration and that means getting a little fancy with your choice of beverage. Here are the virgin drinks for every holiday this season.

Don’t forget some cranberries from dinner, pomegranate seeds, or mint leaves for garnish to elevate your drink to the next level. With a drink this delicious, everyone will want to try it.
Virgin Hot Toddy
Hanukkah may be 8 nights long, but you won’t get sick of this drink, especially if you live somewhere cold. This virgin Hanukkah drink is made with apples, apple cider vinegar, sugar, water, cinnamon tea, and apple shrub. This drink takes a few days to get it just right, so start early.
Virgin Mulled Cider
