Mocktails to Celebrate Fitness Milestones

These Better-For-You Mocktails Will Help You Celebrate Those Everyday Fitness Milestones

We partnered with V8® to help you celebrate all your feel-good milestones, no matter how big or small.

Fitness is more than just a thing you do to get muscles or lose weight — it's a method for feeling good. It's a way to boost your mental health, physical health, and long-term health, and it doesn't have to be daunting. Fitness can come in so many different forms, from a high-intensity circuit to stretching between work meetings. And those little accomplishments deserve a pat on the back!

So to help you make every milestone — big and small — a little more special, we tapped cocktail master and owner of beverage consulting firm Spirit & Spoon, Karl Steuk to put together five craft mocktails to help you reward yourself for a job well done. Keep scrolling for a few fitness moments throughout the day that deserve some recognition.
