Alysia and Sarah share a love of motherhood, cocktails, and sitting down for some real talk. They host the Hitting the Bottle Podcast to have candid conversations for parents who need to be reminded that they’re not alone. Join us as we talk parenthood while making some fun cocktails & mocktails together.

What you’ll need…

  • Mint
  • Simple Syrup
  • Rum (just for parents!)
  • Lime 
  • Pomegranate Juice
  • Club Soda
  • Cups

Before making drinks, let’s talk about why Hitting the Bottle exists. Destiny loves this podcast because they are honest and dynamic while talking about the real struggles of parenting. Sarah is a single mother who felt like she was feeling alone, didn’t know what she was doing and was inspired to create this safe space for parents to be able to say the things that we so often internalize. Alysia talks about a safe space is a place that is free of judgement, where nothing is off the table and you can freely talk about the things that you feel like you have to hold inside. And hey, we are women who like a beverage, so Hitting The Bottle was born. It’s about the right bottle for the right moment (thank you Lita!).


Kids always want what mom is drinking, and cocktails are so pretty who can blame them! So in this episode we decided to make a cocktail & mocktail from the same ingredients (minus obviously the alcohol for the little ones). 


Cocktails (2 servings)

  • Slap the mint! It brings out the fragrance  
  • Add 10 mint leaves to shaker
  • Add a lime wedge and muddle together
  • Throw in 2 tbsp of white sugar and a couple more lime wedges
  • Muddle muddle muddle!
  • Fill the shaker with ice
  • Pour 2-3 ounces of rum
  • Pour equal parts club soda
  • Add a splash of pomegranate juice
  • Shake it up and pour.
  • Garnish with a lime slice and sprigs of mint

Mocktails (1 serving)

  • Add a handful for mint leaves to shaker
  • Add a lime wedge and muddle together 
  • Add 1 tbsp of honey
  • Muddle it all together
  • Add ice and top with club soda
  • Shake it up and pour in a fun smaller cup 
  • Garnish with a fun straw! 

Watch for Destiny’s reaction (ACTUALLY that’s really good!), it’s priceless.
