My Mocktail Forest – My Why

Being able to enjoy delicious and fancy drinks is something everyone should be able to do. Even those, for whichever reason, cannot or choose not to have alcohol. Personally, there isn’t a medical reason I cannot enjoy an alcoholic beverage, I simply choose not to.

As someone whose seen the awful sides of alcohol abuse, domestic abuse, and alcoholism within my family I’d love to offer those who still want to enjoy a delicious boozy flavored beverage or a fizzy drink that is alcohol-free and safe for the whole family.


Hi, I’m April!

I completed high school in 2005 and went on to get my associate’s degree in Business Management. While life started to happen and my biggest littles were born. I was blessed enough to be able to stay at home with them until they started middle school. Life was happening once again and I found myself needing to find a job. I was a bank teller for 3 years after that! I loved it and I miss it often.

Guess what! Life started happening again and I had another beautiful baby girl with my new husband. I am a stay-at-home mama once more and finally finding that thing that fills my cup. I truly enjoy creating, making, and sharing my recipes with you. Learning new things and meeting so many lovely people along the way.

I currently work from home on my site levelupbakes.com where I share recipes from my baking journey. Now I’m happily spending my time sharing tasty mocktails for you to try!

Fun facts: (I love fun facts btw) My husband and I were married in 2021 in our backyard. We met in 2014 playing a video game, Destiny. We started dating in 2017 and finally met each other in person a few months later. Crazy huh! We lived 700 miles apart!
