How Cheers–a post-drink pill–is improving my mindful drinking habits
In this article I explore Cheers, a product that complements my own mindful drinking journey perfectly. After talking to their founder, working with their team, and trying the product for myself, I can say I genuinely love these guys and gals. Their mission aligns perfectly with ours and their product perfectly complements Sunnyside for the Mindful Drinker.
Brands We Love: Probiotic Mocktails from Ferm Fatale
We're always on the lookout for unique non-alcoholic alternatives. While there are plenty that sort of end up like a sugary soda, every now and then we stumble upon brands like Ferm Fatale that are doing something truly unique. Ferm Fatale creates "probiotic mocktails" that are "non-alcoholic social beverages filled with bacteria, yeast, enzymes, vitamins and antioxidants that support a healthy digestive system."

In addition, there is mounting research that CBD — aka cannabidiol — can be a useful tool for practicing mindful drinking.

It may be pretty obvious by now, but here at Sunnyside we love new companies and products that align with our mission to be healthier and drink better. However, it’s no small feat to find drinks that are just as enjoyable as the wines, beers and cocktails that we all know and love. Trying alternative products may feel daunting at first, or even downright inaccessible. Many of us have asked the question, “so, what do I drink now?
Brands We Love: Leilo
The alternative beverage world is teeming with products that replicate the experience of drinking alcohol with flavors and unique ingredients, and deleting the hangover. A new and totally unique member of this growing movement is Leilo, which uses kava, a root found in Fiji, to produce a relaxing effect. At the end of the day when a glass of wine or a cocktail is calling, Leilo offers another option to help you unwind.
