What Is A Mocktail

What is all this mocktail talk? It’s the non-alcoholic, kid friendly versions of many drinks. It’s a nice drink to have for kids when parents tend to celebrate and drink alcoholic drinks or when they tend to toast. This way those who choose to not drink alcohol or those who aren’t of age have a fun and festive drink to cheers with.

Recipe Variations, Tips And Tricks

  • If kids need a lid, you can buy these amazing Mason Jar lids to keep them from spilling their drink so easily.
  • Opt out of the garnishes if your guests don’t like them.
  • Swap ginger ale for other soda or drink, like Sprite, lemonade or Fresca. These would all make fantastic winter non alcoholic drink bases.

How Long Is This Drink Good For?

Since this drink has sliced fruit it in, but no other alcohol or perishables, this drink is good for a few hours. Once the ice starts to melt it will water down the drink a bit. So we recommend enjoying after you serve them.
