With self-care as popular as ever, one major trend in the realm of mental wellness is sleep. From professionals on the go to teens to stay-at-home moms, everyone is looking for ways to sleep easy and well. That’s why we’re jumping on this Sleepy Girl Mocktail trend!

This viral sensation was originally shared on TikTok by Grace Norton (@gracie_norton) and has more than 1 million views. The recipe is simple, with just four ingredients, but it’s packed with sleep-enhancing properties—and it seems everyone, from Women’s Health to Mattress Online, recommends it.

According to expert James Wilson, also known as The Sleep Geek, tart cherry juice contains the sleep hormone melatonin, which can help the body fall asleep more easily. Meanwhile, magnesium is often used to fight insomnia and can be effective for supporting longer, better quality sleep.

Measurements can be adjusted to taste, but Mattress Online experts remind imbibers to be careful not to ingest more than 400 mg of magnesium per day (including from other foods and beverages).

So, you can enjoy your coffee or tea to wake up in the morning, then wind down before bed with this sleep-supporting mocktail. It’s a self-care routine that’s enjoyable for anyone!
