Episode 6: Fun facts
I'm drinking a Heineken 0.0 today and will try a few different non-alcoholic beers in the next few episodes. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this beer, it's very smooth and tastes very close to the real thing. In this episode, I wanted to talk about the evolving trends in the marketplace, the biggest alcohol companies are offering more low and non-alcoholic options, showing how the Sober Curious movement is growing and how consumers are more aware and informed about their drinking habits. The $90 billion a year alcohol beverage industry is most definitely taking notice.

Episode 5: And the party don't stop
My drink of the day is another glass of alcohol-removed Merlot because it's so good! I then talk about Daybreaker, a morning dance party that starts with an hour of yoga and then everyone gets their dance on. It was my first time attending this event and although I highly enjoyed it, I also have some thoughts about the execution and what I expected before attending. I really liked the energy and a space where no one is drinking alcohol and also dancing their socks off without the typical social lubricant. Will continue on my quest for more sober-free events, spaces, and people!

Episode 4: Ghost me maybe
I found an awesome sangria recipe on thekitchn.com and that is of course, my drink of the day. After I thoroughly describe the recipe and how much I want it to be summer to enjoy it the way it was meant to be enjoyed, I talk about my outing at Listen Bar, a pop-up booze-free bar that has been hosting monthly events until it finds a permanent home. It was such a unique experience to be able to order any drink on the menu, listen to great music, and be surrounded by awesome people that share your philosophy. The band that was featured is called Savoir Adore and they were serving drinks and had a killer playlist. It gave people not only the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals, but also interact with up-and-coming artists that were having a blast behind the bar. In this episode, I talk about how much I enjoyed this space and how this community is increasing and finding each other. It's been quite a ride and I can't wait to see what's next!I would love to hear your story and why you're sober or sober-curious. Email me at email@example.com if you feel like sharing!

Episode 3: Marijuana
Although this podcast as a whole focuses on the consumption of alcohol and our society's relationship to it, I thought it would be interesting to lay the consumption and perception of these two drugs side-by-side and discuss how marketing can often manipulate public opinion and social behavior. There are no mocktails in this episode, but I do enjoy a delicious glass of Fre alcohol-removed Merlot. PSA: the Merlot was not chilled when I purchased it and I didn't enjoy the taste at first, but after being in the fridge overnight, the Merlot came to life and my tastebuds were pleased.

Episode 2: Virgin mojitos are the best mojitos!
In this episode, I dive into my thoughts about our drinking culture and society’s collective mentality that alcohol should be viewed as a reward rather than seeing it as the inhibitor that is it. It’s a mindset that is difficult to change individually and even that much harder collectively as a society, but like anything else, it has to start with the individual and then create a wave and then a movement to the point where the norm will be non-alcoholic bars and sippin' on a well-made non-alcohol mojito. In case it wasn’t clear from the episode’s title, virgin mojitos are my fave and that’s my drink of choice today, because nothing beats the right amount of ginger ale with fresh lime juice and some raw sugar!

Episode 1: Trading in my beer for a cranberry orange juice
In this episode, I explore a few of my personal reasons for choosing not to drink, how it has impacted my life, and why I think everyone should consider embarking on this journey, even if just for a short period of time. I also enjoy my go-to drink, a half cranberry, half orange juice concoction!
