Welcome to our Whole Life Challenge-compliant cocktail series from professional bartender Jenna Gruttadauria. Jenna practiced mixology at some of the most well-known bars and clubs in New York City before joining the Whole Life Challenge team. Now, she enjoys using her knowledge to make healthier versions of classic cocktails.

This berry punch might be the most delicious and easy cocktail you’ll ever make. When you are working with berries, you don’t need to add much of anything else because they are super flavorful and provide great color for your cocktail.

Personally, I like to think of this berry punch cocktail as a “boozy smoothie.”

You can dress up this berry punch cocktail by garnishing with a lemon wheel and a rosemary sprig.

Note: We are not saying that alcohol is “healthy” to consume. (More on that here.) We are acknowledging that there are times we inevitably make the choice to imbibe (and we include ourselves in that “we”), and that there are better and worse ways to go about drinking alcohol when it comes to our health. Our goal is to empower you with lower-sugar, lower-calorie, still-fabulous recipes for these times.
