THANKFUL COCKTAIL

​Mindfulness is deliberately paying attention, non-judgmentally. Mindfulness promotes balance, choice, wisdom, and acceptance of what is. It is the holidays. Mindfully indulge in a cocktail (or beverage of choice) or two, enjoying every sip and every conversation with friends and family. Try to avoid the sugary mixtures and syrups, instead choosing naturally sweetened beverages. The frozen cranberries and rosemary create deliciousness to both the eyes and tastebuds in this thankful cocktail.
