Mocktails Protect Yourself

Just another quick variation on Mocktails guaranteeing satisfaction and thirst-quenching refreshment in place of alcohol, hangovers, and trouble.  I know some folks think that alcohol is "where it's at".  It's not--getting kicked out, paying fines, and living at home...again...have a blast!



This drink is packed with nutrients, Vitamin C, feeling good, energy and flavor.  So, protect yourself from scurvy, a snotty-runny nose, embarrassment,  cold viruses, and living with mama--and I haven't even mentioned the serious stuff.  Why bother with all that crap?  Protect yourself.  Protect a friend. 

Friends don't let friends be stupid!
