“Drinking alcohol can be really hard on your body,” says Serena Poon, a certified nutritionist and celebrity chef. “Studies have shown it can lead to inflammation, destruction of the gut microbiome, liver, and heart, neurological problems, and even cancer.

16 oz. unsweetened pomegranate juice

2 oz. sparkling water
