This mocktail is a great champagne alternative for St Patrick's Day! 

Nutritional highlights

As this is a mocktail it means this drink doesn't contain any alcohol, and none of the drawbacks compared to alcoholic cocktails. Alcohol is a diuretic which means it increases water loss, meaning it can lead to dehydration. This mocktail however does contribute to our total fluid intake of 2L a day. Even if we are slightly dehydrated it can causes dizziness, tiredness, poor concentration and headaches.
