The Viral Sleepy Girl Mocktail & How To Make It

BY KRISTEN GARRIDO

If you're having trouble sleeping, there's a viral drink sweeping across TikTok that might help to alleviate that problem. It's called the Sleepy Girl Mocktail and here's how to make it.

What’s In the Sleepy Girl Mocktail?

This cocktail is a pretty simple drink consisting of only four ingredients, designed to give you a good nights rest. 

1 Cup of Ice

The first thing you need to do is grab a glass and fill it up with ice. Cubed, crushed, etc. 

1/2 Cup of Pure Tart Juice

Then you're going to want to get 100% pure tart cherry juice. This means no artificial sweeteners or preservatives, as natural as possible.

1 Tablespoon of Magnesium Powder

You're then going to get any brand of magnesium powder you prefer, and add in 1 tablespoon of the powder into your drink.

Tonic or Sparkling Water

Lastly, top off your mocktail with a pairing of your choice. We recommend something fizzy like ginger ale or sparkling water.

Stir & Enjoy

You're all set: just stir the ingredients and enjoy! Now you have a refreshing solution to your sleepless nights.

How Does It Work?

The key lies in the combination of the two main ingredients in this Sleepy Mocktail: tart cherry juice and magnesium. 

How Does It Work?

The Tart cherry juice contains high levels of melatonin, a natural sleep hormone that can induce feelings of drowsiness.

How Does It Work?

This works alongside magnesium, a natural muscle relaxer to help calm the body into a relaxing rest.

Can I Make It Into a Cocktail Instead?

This is not recommended, as this drink is meant to promote healthy sleep and alcohol can actually cause the opposite effect, disrupting your sleeping pattern.

It can be difficult to find a quick fix for good sleep, but with its growing popularity and rave reviews, this might be the secret you've been waiting for.
