Mocktails might be a better option

For many Christmas is a chance to have fun and relax than a glass of wine or other kinds of alcohol with friends or family. Unfortunately alcohol can interfere with the way some chemotherapy drugs work so best to check with your medical team if you are having treatment.

Generally, having the odd glass of wine or beer is not going to affect you while on chemotherapy but with some drugs it is very important not to drink alcohol as they interact. Mocktails are a huge trend at present and might be a better option. Check out the best alcohol-free drink recipes at has some fabulous suggestions for booze-free drinks. Fancy a Watermelon breeze, Ginger punch, a Frozen apple margarita or a Cranberry sangria?

Remember! Just check with your doctor first to make sure it is okay or your Christmas cheer might make you very, very sick.
