here’s a good idea for a mocktail

from my inbox:

Trarium:  “Still sober and grateful and a little sore. Moved rock for 8 hours straight, and spent most of yesterday getting seedlings into pots and a new raised bed we built last weekend. The sore muscles feel great! It was warm, almost 80 degrees here. I have to admit there was serious screaming for an ice cold beer (in my head) towards the end of both afternoons. I felt my feelings…. sad that I have already drank my allotment, probably my neighbors, and their neighbors so I’m done.

But then I made a new brew:  1/3 ginger ale, 1/3 blood orange dry soda and 1/3 sparkling water. Delish and refreshing!

I am savoring “Keeping the Wolf from the Door“. It is motivation, encouragement and a treat all in one!”


I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • I have been mixing up homemade Cherry-Thyme Pineapple Lemonade for my Thirsty Thursday. I have to admit it is way better than any wine or beer.

  • 8 months would be a miracle! I’m at day 35 and someone inside my head told me it would be okay to have a beer at lunch! Nooooo. Shut Up! Leave me alone Evil Wolf. It must be the Wolf because I want want want to do the 100 days!
    I will search for Ginger Ale…..

  • I substitute Fever Tree Ginger Beer, light, peppery and fizzles in a pretty glass. NO ONE knows ( or cares) when I’m out to dinner or at a party what’s in my glass, they are concerned with their own glass.

  • “sad that I have already drank my allotment, probably my neighbors, and their neighbors…”
    Ditto that.

    The ginger ale mix sounds great!
