Mocktail Madness

By Kelly Navarro ‘19

Sparkling water fanatics rejoiced when we got the new flavored water dispensers, but many of you may not know how to take full advantage of our new options.

On Wednesday, February 24th, HUDS Dietetic Intern Kathleen Flynn, a 2016 graduate student from Framingham State University’s nutrition MS/CDP Program, brought a little sparkle to our dinner with new mocktails that provide a great alternative to more sugar-laden sodas or juices.

These mocktails are an easy way to liven your evening and feel a tad classier after a long day of lecture.
