Cranberry Agua Fresca Mocktail

This Cranberry Agua Fresca Is Fresh, Light, and Actually Good For You

With the holidays happening right now, we called on the Paleo goddess Cassy Joy Garcia, holiday hostess, blogger, and author of the healthy cookbook Fed + Fit, to give us her favorite healthy holiday cocktail. And as per usual, she definitely did not disappoint.

This lighter take on a holiday-themed cranberry cocktail has no alcohol, uses fresh, simple ingredients, and is perfectly Paleo. With mint, cranberries, and water, you'll whip up a healthy drink that's refreshing and bursting with flavor — perfect for sipping before, during, or after that big meal.
