Sleepy Girl Mocktail – A Beautiful Mess


When the Sleepy Girl mocktail went viral on TikTok, I immediately wanted to try it. I’m one of the many people who have trouble sleeping, so having a nice mocktail before bed to promote sleep is very appealing.

I tried this recipe and will give you lots of recipe notes and adjustments you can make to improve your own version. We’ll also cover the science behind these ingredients and why they may encourage sleep.

Ingredients in Sleepy Girl Mocktail

For this recipe, you will also need Cocktail shaker. I served my drink in a glass of wineBut you can use any cocktail glass you have on hand.

How to make

In a cocktail glass, combine ice, cherry juice and magnesium powder.

Shake for 10-15 seconds until well cooled.

Pour the mixture into a wine glass or cocktail glass of your choice.

Top it off with a bubbly prebiotic soda or sparkling water like La Croix.

Tips for making

  • A little chalky? I liked my drink, but I think a tablespoon of powder is the absolute maximum. Try it with half a tablespoon if you find it a little chalky.
  • Too much flavour? After trying it with the ingredients specified above (which I already had on hand), I’d probably prefer it Unflavored magnesium powder. I honestly think I don’t like the berry flavor that the Moon Juice brand comes with and maybe others will.
  • Extras -I think a squeeze of lemon juice would be a nice addition against the tart cherry juice. I also think it’s a good idea to try different flavored sodas to find the flavor combination you enjoy the most.
  • Alternatives -If you don’t like tart cherry juice, try cutting it with more seltzer or prebiotic soda. If you don’t like magnesium powder, you can easily skip it and use a magnesium spray or take another supplement (such as pills). I love prebiotic sodas and find them to make a nice mocktail on their own, or they can be added to a recipe like this. Bottom line, any combination of these ingredients would make a great cocktail for your bedtime routine, so feel free to tweak it to suit your taste.

Is he working?

You may be skeptical about this mixture made famous thanks to social media trends. The truth is that there is some science behind these ingredients. Although it may not suit everyone, it is worth a try to see if it works for your nighttime routine. Better sleep is always a worthwhile goal.

  • Benefits of sour cherry juiceCherries (all kinds) are full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Tart cherries are naturally high in melatonin, the “sleepiness hormone” that helps regulate sleep-wake cycles. There was a small Studies show that tart cherry juice can improve sleep. Tart cherries have anti-inflammatory benefits that can reduce stress hormones, making sleep easier and better quality. Having some raw cherries or tart cherry juice before bed can improve sleep, just be sure to choose juice without added sugar.
  • Benefits of magnesium: Did you know this? Half of the US population does not get enough magnesium? Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant. I have used Magnesium spray Before bed for years. Although it does not directly induce sleep, magnesium helps you relax, which may contribute to sleep. Foods that are naturally high in magnesium are pumpkin seeds, almonds, and cashews. Consider those for a nighttime snack.
  • Benefits of prebioticsPrebiotics help improve digestion and metabolism, regulate blood sugar, and reduce inflammation in the body.
  • Ready meals: Even if this recipe gives you a placebo effect, it is more likely to improve sleep quality than drinking any type of alcohol before bed. We recommend trying this Sleepy Girl Mocktail recipe with a healthy bedtime routine. This is not a substitute for medication or a treatment for medical conditions.
