5 Best non alcoholic drinks for parties

1. Mocktail mule

This booze-less twist on the spicy ginger cocktail gets a hint of sweetness from honey. And yes, you can still drink it in a copper mug.

Ingredients:

honey
1 half lime
2 ounces fresh lime juice
3 ounces ginger beer

Instructions:

Make the honey simple syrup: Add equal parts honey and water to a small saucepan and heat until the honey melts completely into the water. Set aside, and let cool. Muddle lime and 1 oz of honey syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the lime juice and shake with ice for 10 seconds. Strain into a glass or copper mug. Top with ginger beer and stir.

 

2.Virgin piña colada

You may be thinking: what’s a piña colada without the rum? Well, it’s still just as delicious, thanks to pineapple juice and coconut cream. Blend this one up for a little taste of the tropics any time of year—even when it’s snowing.

Ingredients:

1 cup ice
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut cream
1 tablespoon white sugar or honey
ice
pineapple slices, for garnish

Instructions:

In an electric blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. Garnish with fresh pineapple slices.

 

3. Virgin french 75

The French 75 is one of our favorite, elegant cocktails, usually made with gin and champagne. This mocktail version imitates the drink’s delicate flavor with a mix of tonic water, citrus, and bitters to create the perfect sip.

A note: there are some varieties of bitters that have a small alcohol content, so make sure to look for alcohol-free bitters if you’re trying to avoid booze completely.

Ingredients:

3 ounces fresh lemon juice
4 dashes lemon or orange bitters
12 ounces tonic water
1 teaspoon sugar
ice

Instructions:

Add fresh lemon juice and bitters to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until frosty then divide into two champagne flutes. Top off with tonic water until it reaches about 3/4 of the way up the glass. Add sugar to taste, up to 1 teaspoon and serve immediately.

 

4. Virgin bloody mary

Just because you’re laying off the booze doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your brunch in basically the same way. This drink tastes just like the real thing.

Ingredients:

8 ounces tomato juice
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
4 dashes hot sauce
celery, for garnish
lemon slices, for garnish.

Instructions:

Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and pour over ice in a tall glass. Garnish with a celery stick and a slice of lemon.

 

5. Booze-less hot toddy

There’s no alcohol in this comforting winter drink, but it’s just as spirited. This is a perfect, heart-warming drink for those freezing winter nights when you want something more than just a basic cup of tea.

Ingredients:

1 black tea bag
1 teaspoon honey
pinch ground cloves
pinch ground nutmeg
1 lemon, halved
1 cinnamon stick

Instructions:

Pour boiling water over 1 black tea bag in a mug and let steep for five minutes. In a separate glass or mug, add the honey and spices. Add the hot tea to the mug, along with the juice of half of the lemon. Stir. Cut the remaining half of the lemon into slices. Add lemon slices and cinnamon stick to the mug, as a garnish.
