23 Mocktail Recipes That Look Damn Tasty
Check out these 23 Mocktail Recipes that look damn tasty. These non-alcoholic beverages are a perfect for a twist on an afternoon sip, kids drinks, or a fancy alternative to liquor for our pregnant friends at a party.
I don’t like the taste of liquor, so when it comes to cocktails I prefer them to either be mixed with lighter options (ie: Malibu with a little bit of the harder stuff) but I much prefer non-alcoholic drink recipes (or mocktails).
What’s a mocktail? mock·tail ˈmäkˌtāl/
- a nonalcoholic drink consisting of a mixture of fruit juices or other soft drinks.
It’s fun to play with juices and sodas for a custom concoction we can call our own. In all honesty, I focus a lot of creating recipes for food that I forget how fun (and easy) it is to create drinks that are fun for the whole family to enjoy. Somedays it’s that little extra effort that turns a typical family dinner into a memory that reserves a special spot in our children’s hearts.
I can still remember, as a child, how special it was when I was allowed to mix ginger ale and pineapple juice together. It was a treat then, and it’s still a treat now (however, I prefer club soda these days). Or ordering a Shirly Temple when we went out for Chinese food, although in a town that was monopolized with Chinese restaurants, it wasn’t everytime we went out.
