Mocktails are the New Cocktail.

Mocktails are gaining popularity lately. The booze-free beverages like Frescas, kombucha types, or classic cocktails in a Mocktail form can be just as exciting and refreshing as any cocktail. Like the old and true classic, you grew up with as a kid like Shirley Temples, Arnold Palmers, and Roy Rogers. You can find many popular cocktails that are virgins.

There are many reasons you choose an alcohol-free mocktail drink, whether you’re the designated driver, expecting, dieting, or you don’t drink. You can still enjoy tasty non-alcoholic cocktails that are delicious and complex.

I have some recipes for healthy mocktails for you to try or whip up for someone who wants non-alcoholic mixed drinks that taste just as good without the alcohol. (And you can throw in alcohol to your drink if you wish.)
