Summer’s finally here, and with it come the beach hangs, garden parties, picnics and festivals that give us a good reason to bring our friends and parties outdoors! Looking for a refreshing non-alcholic alternative to the standard summer cocktails? Here are 11 of our favorite summer mocktails!
What is a Mocktail?
A Mocktail is simply a non-alcholic cocktail! Much like their alcoholic counterparts, mocktails are made by blending juices, syrups, spices, herbs, fruits, teas, coffee and much more into entirely new drinks. The major difference between the two is that a mocktail uses no alcoholic ingredients whatsoever, making it a great alternative for those who don’t wish to drink, but still want the experience of a great cocktail.
Which is the best Mocktail?
It’s difficult to say that one drink is better than the other, since all it comes down to is personal taste. However, the mark of a great Mocktail is very much the same as a great Cocktail. By using the best ingredients, and pouring a lot of care into how you mix them, you can elevate the simplest mixture of syrups, spices, juices and herbs into something more than the sum of its parts.
Are Mocktails Healthy?
That depends on what you put in them! For example, ingredients like Simple syrup can be replaced with agave to lessen sugar content in your drink!
