Guys, apologies for the clunkiness here- I'll be making some big-ish changes to this website, so for the next few weeks it might be a little confusing where things are. The cool thing is that the website is changing to reflect Swig and Swallow's changing identity and I'm amped about the new direction!! I'll be migrating all the content over here from my other website, www.aprilwachtel.com, so my classes, Mocktail feed, press, and various projects and services have a single home, as opposed to being scattered as they are now.

First order of business is to get all the Mocktail recipes over here from Instagram. I can see from the metrics that a lot of people are coming here specifically to view the recipes I've been posting each day, and I want to make it easier for you to see everything at once rather than having to flip through the recipes in Instagram.

Comment below if you have a better idea of how to display this (I wanted to also maintain the images in gallery format, as I think they look so nice contrasting each other) but at the moment with this specific site template I can't figure out how to display them in grid format along with the text in a way that still keeps them clean and uncluttered. 

Cool, all the recipes are below... hope you enjoy! :)

Recipes

*All of the fruit/vegetable ingredients listed are fresh juice unless otherwise specified. These are not good- or good for you- with frozen juice, canned juice, or juice from concentrate, so beware the illusion of the shortcut! 

*I prepare these recipes in liquid ounces, though you can easily change the language to 'cups' or 'parts' as long as the ratios stay the same.

*'Fine straining' means to strain a second time, through a tea strainer or chinois.
