Festive Kombucha Mocktails to Bring Cheer to Your Office This Season

Ah, the holidays. When the days get shorter, the weather gets chillier, and the festivities get merrier. Just because you’re still in the office doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be basking in the holiday cheer. Our suggestion? Mix things up with some office-friendly Health-Ade mocktails.

Not only will you raise spirits, you’ll quickly become the office favorite without spending hours baking. So you can get happy while getting your shit squared away before that well deserved PTO.

We also highly recommend Christmas sweaters for enhanced joy.

Here are some recipes you can make with Health-ade’s seasonal Holiday Cheers Kombucha to get lit:
