Essential Oil Infused Cocktails and Mock-tails | Happy Hour with doTERRA

It is summertime, which means long days outside, outdoor celebrations, and time spent by large bodies of water. Pretty, delicious drinks are just a summer accessory. Let’s learn how to make some essential oil infused cocktails and mock-tails. 
Welcome to happy hour with doTERRA! 
All of these drinks are super fun and easy to make. The only special kitchen appliance you will need is a blender. All of these drinks can be made into mock-tails by leaving out the alcohol. 
Many of these recipes are crowd sourced from other essential oil users. 
You will notice that the essential oils give each drink a burst of flavor that you can’t get with just the citrus rind.
