Weekends needn’t be three days long or holiday stuffed to make one feel the need for recovery. Late nights filled with friends, good times and fun memories catch up quickly once Monday morning rolls around. Keep sharing good times throughout the work week with a Monday non-alcoholic pick-me-up Mocktail with friends. The Clear Conscience drink recipe created at Seattle’s Restaurant Zoë is a sure fire responsible choice to meet the work week head on in revitalizing style.
