11 Mocktails That Prove You Don't Need Alcohol To Be The Life Of The Party

National Sober Day doesn't have to be one day out of the year.

In college, alcohol is so rooted in the culture that it almost seems off-beat to spend a full day, or even a full week, 100% sober. The truth is, earlier this year, I struggled with some health issues. Between getting poked at with needles, changing my lifestyle just to get through the day and medications galore, I had to find peace with being what felt like the only college student who didn't drink.

It turns out, I never needed the alcohol to have a good time anyway. When I did go out with my friends, I offered to drive them home to make sure they got back safely. I always had a great time and actually saved a lot of money in the process.

Whether you're trying to cut some calories, remember what it was like to be sober every night, or you've just never been a vodka-cranberry kind of person anyway, these mocktails are sure to taste better than the overpriced drink you were going to get at the bar.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
