3 Mocktails to Rock Your World

Summer is a time for fun, relaxation and refreshing drinks; but they don't always have to include alcohol.

In fact, more and more people are starting to make the switch to enjoying "mocktails"; non-alcoholic versions of some of their favorite drinks.  If you haven't waded into the mocktail waters yet, no worries; we dug up three excellent mocktail recipes that we're certain you're going to love!

Grape & Tonic mocktail

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz of blood grapefruit juice
  • 4 oz of tonic water
  • Ice cubes
  • Slice of blood grapefruit
  • Sprig of rosemary

Directions:
Mix juice and tonic water together. Add ice and garnish with slice of grapefruit and sprig of rosemary.

Something to keep in mind:
Non-alcoholic cocktails made from citrus juices and soda appeal to folks who like drier drinks.

Strawberries & Roses mocktail

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz of fresh lemon juice
  • 1.5 oz of blood grapefruit juice
  • 1-2 oz of strawberry juice concentrate or strawberry cocktail syrup
  • 4 oz of rose lemonade (we recommend Fentimans)
  • Ice cubes
  • A few strawberry slices

Directions:
Mix juices, strawberry juice concentrate or cocktail syrup and rose lemonade together in a glass. Add ice and garnish with slice of strawberry.

Something to keep in mind:
A fresh strawberry non-alcoholic drink is the perfect refreshment for a hot day. It also pairs very well as a starter drink for a barbecue.

Watermelon Punch

Ingredients:

  • 3 small squares of watermelon (about 1" square)
  • 3 orange wedges
  • 1 lemon wedge, peeled
  • 1 oz of sugar, simple syrup
  • 2 oz of cranberry juice
  • 4 oz non-alcoholic white win
  • crushed ice

Directions:

  • Crush watermelon pieces, orange wedges and lemon wedge inside a mason-style jar.
  • Add syrup, cranberry juice and non-alcoholic white wine. Add crushed ice to fill the jar.
  • Place a small fork inside so that you can eat the fruit out once you're done.

Something to keep in mind:
You can make a lot of different mocktails the night before and simply pop a lid on them to make them mobile. However, if a recipe calls for ice, do not add it at this time as it will water-down the drink. Add ice right before you're ready to enjoy.
