Disney Pixar’s Inside Out is an incredibly done story. It follows Riley as she flips through different emotions from a baby until her preteen years. While the first emotion she sees is Joy, it is quickly followed by Sadness. The movie begins with Joy always having to cover for Sadness.

Things seem to start going wrong for Riley after having some major lifestyle changes and when Sadness starts to touch those pivotal memories that make Riley who she is today. Sadness seems to turn everything blue, just like her character’s color when she interacts with things. And while Joy intially things Sadness is the problem to the question, she quickly learns that sometimes the solution is right in front of you the whole time.

Get ready to feel all the things with this Inside Out’s Sadness Inspired mocktail to go along with catching all the emotions on the big screen!
