The Sleepy Girl Mocktail is trending again on TikTok. Touted as a drink that induces sleep, the mocktail is a mix of magnesium with pure tart cherry juice and fizzy soda. The recipe was first uploaded by wellness enthusiast Gracie Norton (although it is reputed to have been made by Calee Shea) in March 2023 when she tried it and got amazing results. Norton suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome and has problems sleeping. The concoction worked wonders for her and she shared it on TikTok. It was an instant hit. People tried it and vouched for its efficacy in inducing sleep. Since then, many variations of her original recipe have found way on social media. But pure tart cherry juice should not be replaced as cherries contain melatonin which regulates the sleep-wake cycle.

This year, the Dry January (January as a month in which one refrains from drinking any alcohol as a personal challenge after the excesses of the holiday season) is back with a vengeance and groups have been formed on social media to promote healthy drinks. People are choosing to avoid alcoholic beverages and are consuming non-alcoholic substitutes. Mocktails have been gaining prominence in this drive and The Sleepy Girl Mocktail is trending fast.

MedicalNewsToday says that "researchers believe magnesium may promote better sleep in various ways, such as reducing the stress hormone cortisol, increasing a sleep-promoting hormone called melatonin, and helping to regulate neurotransmitters for the central nervous system (CNS)". Hence, people have been trying magnesium tablets and supplements for long to get some sleep. Calee Shea worked on this to create an easily consumable drink that included magnesium and Gracie Norton popularized it. Now it is a hit.

As more and more people share their experiences in getting good sleep after drinking The Sleepy Girl Mocktail, it seems that we may have finally found the wonder drink to cure insomnia.
