It is hard to pick just one favorite migraine drink recipe, so here are a few that are the easiest to make. Below are some links and some recipes for you to use this or any festive season to help you steer clear of self inflicted migraine attacks.
Choosing non alcoholic beverages certainly depends on where you live.
Deciding on hot or cold drinks for Christmas is different all over the world.
I know that avoiding alcoholic beverages during the holiday festive season is hard to do.
Hopefully, with this list above and using your will power with these simple substitutions, there will be no reason to feel left out of the party.
So bring your own booze-less party drinks, make sure you use the fun glasses that match your drink and join in the party and have a more fulfilling and memorable festive season. And no migraine triggers - YEAH!
2. Apple juice - my white wine substitute. Mix 1/4 cup of organic apple juice concentrate to 1 liter of filtered, spring or sparkling water. Mix, chill and enjoy. Serve in white wine glass.
For a hot suggestion try - heating up the apple juice (after it's mixed with water) with a cinnamon stick (remove to drink) and add a little honey. YUM!
3. Guava and apple juice - store bought. I buy Phoenix brand (from New Zealand) which is organic. Chill and serve with sparkling water in a long tall glass. Too Easy!
4. Apple cider - also store bought - organic is best. Serve chilled. For hot mulled see recipe below at number 12.
7. Cranberry juice with soda for a fancy mock cosmopolitan.
8. Tonic water and fresh lime juice, or if you prefer something sweeter use soda water and fresh lime juice.
9. Tomato juice with a fresh squeeze of lime juice. Add a piece of celery to garnish. Salt the rim, if it's not a trigger for you.
10. Pomegranate juice spiced with cinnamon, mineral water and cranberries. Or try plain pomegranate juice with sparkling mineral water. YUM!
11. Non alcoholic eggnog with the usual eggs, nutmeg, vanilla, milk and sugar - here's the recipe - Eggnog.
I hope you enjoy printing those out and experimenting. Let me know what you create.
