If you are taking a break from drinking or are living a sober lifestyle, your social life can change significantly. So many social situations are centered around drinking, from meeting up at a bar to hosting friends for a party.
Even if you have the most supportive group of friends or family, it can feel awkward to be sipping on water while everyone else is enjoying a delicious drink.
That’s why it’s nice to have a few great non-alcoholic drinks available. Having a non-alcoholic option available makes it easy for all guests to feel comfortable. As a host, you never know who might be avoiding alcohol for what reasons. And if you are the one who isn’t drinking, it’s nice to have a cocktail alternative to sip on throughout the night.
Below, we’re sharing a few mocktail recipes that are flavorful and fun. Read on to learn more.
1. Virgin “Champagne” Cocktail
A champagne cocktail is the go-to drink for any special occasion. At the celebratory brunch party they show up in the form of breakfast drinks, and at night they can make for a festive punch or pre-dinner treat.
For the non-drinkers, you can offer virgin cocktails that take their inspiration from champagne. Swap in sparkling non alcoholic cider in place of the champagne. The bubbly effect is the most important thing to recreate, and you can make the drink special by adding flavored syrups or fresh fruit.
2. Moscow Mule
A classic Moscow Mule is one of the easiest cocktails to transform into non alcoholic drinks. All you have to do is remove the vodka from the recipe. Ginger beer, which gives the drink its signature flavor, is actually already non alcoholic.
If you want to make your Moscow mocktail feel more special, you can incorporate a fresh fruit puree into the mix, or add muddled cucumber for a bit of fresh flavor.
3. Strawberry Lemonade
If you’re attending a brunch event where there will be alcoholic breakfast drinks, it’s nice to have a refreshing mocktail as a non alcoholic option. A homemade, flavored lemonade is a good option because it’s easy to sip on in the morning and it can look beautiful in a glass, just like a fancy cocktail.
Adding a strawberry syrup to your regular lemonade recipe will make this one of the easiest non alcoholic drinks you can have.
4. Coconut Cooler
Tropical drinks are always popular, so it’s nice to have virgin cocktails that incorporate those same flavors. A mocktail of coconut water and fresh fruit does the trick, and feels like an appropriate drink for any party. If you’re wondering how to quit drinking and still be social, this recipe could be your answer.
5. Flavored Soda Spritzer
A flavored soda spritzer is a good mocktail option because it’s an easy recipe to make in bulk. If you are hosting a large party like a backyard BBQ or pool party, you can make a big batch and people can serve themselves without having to worry about calling attention to themselves and the fact that they aren’t drinking.
Simply mix soda water with a fruit flavoring of your choice, and add lots of ice. Some fresh fruit makes for a festive garnish as well.
