Kick off 2019 with These Tasty Hemp Mocktails Courtesy of Papa & Barkley’s Essentials, Day 6, 12 Drinks of Xmas!

Dry January is almost upon us, but detoxing from an indulgent holiday season doesn’t have to be boring – particularly if you are sipping hemp-infused cocktails.  Wait!! I know you are thinking   “Is she crazy?”  I might be crazy, but when it comes to tasty beverages (note I did not say cocktails), I am game to try just about anything.  Here’s one of the hottest new mocktail products around.

Yes, I know that the holidays aren’t over, but give your wallet – and your liver- a break on the alcohol and prepare for the post-January 1 blues that comes with you – and me– promising to cut off the sugar and the alcohol for the month.  I know it’s not easy. It’s definitely not fun!

BUT who said ditching the alcohol means having boring and blah sips?

Definitely not me! And definitely not Papa & Barkley who can help make the sugar + alcohol detox so much more enjoyable that you won’t notice the lack of spirits!



Hemp-infused mocktails created by Papa & Barkley can help make your detox more enjoyable and relaxing by sipping on The Resolution Recipe or a Hemp Hot Toddy.

Papa & Barkley’s Essentials is extracted from the hemp plant. Hemp contains phytonutrients and naturally occurring phytocannabinoids.
The latter bind to endocannabinoid receptors (ECS) found throughout the human body. Regulating essential biological systems, the ECS is critical in strengthening the mind-body connection. A non-psychoactive plant, hemp addresses exercise-related pain and inflammation and promotes overall therapeutic wellness.

Check out Papa & Barkley’s mocktail recipes below.

Cheers to a Dry January!
