Brilliant Non-Alcoholic Cocktails Everyone Loves

Non-alcoholic cocktails don't have to be a bummer. Seriously, I mean that. And there are a lot of compelling reasons to enjoy them over their boozy counterpoints. For example, if you're pregnant, if you're attempting to improve your health overall, or, if, you're twelve years old ;)...Having something special to drink at the end of a day is a favorite ritual, though. A celebration of sorts, and a way for to transition from to-do list mode, into a more relaxed frame of mind. I'm hoping these will provide some inspiration. Play around with aqua frescas, shrubs, kombuchas, and fresh fruit syrups. All can be fun components in mocktail-type drinks. I like to keep the components in nice jars and decanters, and serve in pretty glassware. Enjoy!1. Rose & Rhubarb Soda - (QUITOKEETO) Keep blushy pink rhubarb syrup on hand, and you're just a splash away from a special soda. Love this for brunches, and if you serve the syrup on the side everyone can sweeten to their liking. Get the recipe here.Eleven Brilliant Non-Alcoholic Cocktails everyone Loves2. Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Basil, and Honey Sweet Iced Tea - (Half Baked Harvest) If there's hibiscus being brewed, I'm drinking it. Especially if something like this! I love the tangy sourness of this flower, and the incredible saturation of (anti-oxidant-packed) color. Hibiscus, lemongrass, lime and basil, in one electric iced tea.

Fresh beet juice is paired with a quick syrup made from tangy sumac. Then you have bit of spritz from soda water, and a jolt of fresh lemon. Love this for autumn.

When you steep sprigs of it, the scent is like falling into a cloud of anise, and fennel, and green-ish black licorice. Making a syrup from it is simple, keeps well refrigerated, and makes a beautiful soda.Get the recipe here.Eleven Brilliant Non-Alcoholic Cocktails everyone Loves5. Pineapple Coconut Water - (101 Cookbooks) Fresh pineapple juice is one of life's simple pleasures. Enjoy it like this, spiked with fresh ginger juice, and rounded out with coconut water for a fragrant tropical refresher. Get the recipe here.Eleven Brilliant Non-Alcoholic Cocktails everyone Loves6. Tangerine Rosemary Mocktail - (The Merrythought) Herbal citrus drinks are a weakness, and I love the unexpected use of tangerine juice here. The rosemary syrup is made separately, which is nice because you can sweeten to taste easily. Get the recipe here.Eleven Brilliant Non-Alcoholic Cocktails everyone Loves7. Cranberry Rosemary Refresher - (In Sonnet's Kitchen) The rosemary makes this refresher. Add it to your holiday repertoire this year!

Perhaps the most vibrant, refreshing thing you can do with chai spices, lime juice, and club soda. Get the recipe here.Eleven Brilliant Non-Alcoholic Cocktails everyone Loves9. Louisa Shafia's Watermelon, Mint, and Cider Vinegar Tonic - (Food52) A beautiful summer option here. And, you can totally switch up the melon based on what you have on hand.
