Cherry Sour Mule Mocktail

An amazing way to celebrate cooler weather and earlier nighttime hours is to combine tart cherry (for its sleep-inducing properties) with a Moscow mule to make this delectable Cherry Sour Mule Mocktail.

Although this mocktail is technically sugar-free, it does have tart cherry juice in it, which is basically straight fructose. Tart cherry juice does have less sugar than other cherries, so pay attention to the type you’re buying (it will say Montmorency cherry juice).

So if you’re able to have a bit of sugar and need a boost in sleep, this Cherry Sour Mule Mocktail could be the perfect warm-weather after-dinner beverage!
