Mocktails to Try This Summer

Mocktails are almost as trendy as their alcoholic cousins these days and for a good reason! Everyone likes a delicious, refreshing drink that doesn’t skimp on flavor, even if it isn’t non-alcoholic. Plus, “mocktails” have evolved into more than a concoction of sodas and juices. Whether store-bought or homemade, there are many exciting and unusual possibilities today. Discover the ultimate assortment of non-alcoholic cocktails recipes this summer, including a delicious pineapple and lime mocktail and an excellent pear and rose punch.

 

Our virgin mojito is a delicious non-alcoholic take on the classic cocktail; omitting the rum for a refreshingly booze-free combination is perfect for hot summer days. Replace the soda water with lemonade if you prefer your mojito to be a little sweeter.

The green tea base makes the pear and rose punch special, which adds a fresh note that balances out the drink’s innate sweetness. In a stunning mocktail, capture the traditional bitter, citrusy flavors of a Negroni. To make a slow-sipping negroni mocktail, make a simple syrup with grapefruit, orange, and fragrant spices, then combine with white grape juice, water, and ice. This delightful drink tastes exactly like the real thing.

 

Our apple, elderflower and mint sparkle blend to create a fruity, grown-up non-alcoholic punch perfect for a summer picnic. The recipe can be doubled or halved depending on how many people you’re serving. If you don’t have any mint, use fresh rosemary instead. Start the blender and make a fresh Pina Colada! This homemade recipe has only three ingredients: pineapple juice, coconut cream, and ice. It’s a delicious tropical smoothie that tastes better than any store-bought non-alcoholic Pina Colada mix.

Summer parties necessitate sangria. While it’s generally a wine-based punch, a few savvy component swaps can quickly transform it into a virgin sangria. A trio of freshly squeezed citrus juices is crucial in this recipe. The wine is replaced with a blend of red and white grape juices, and the dish is finished off with a splash of sparkling apple cider.
