I have kids and unfortunately they are not old enough to drink beverages with alcohol nor do I really want them to be old enough yet or drink. We developed these Cocktails and Mocktails Recipes for them and myself. I do not drink but I hate going to a party and being the only one that doesn’t drink. I am a girly girl and I love a good looking drink without alcohol. I am the kind of chick that drives people to drink. HA, HA, HA, what I love about this recipe is you make up the recipe and then you can add a shot of rum or vodka to the drink to make it a cocktail. I find it to be refreshing and lovely without the vodka or rum but others like that extra bit of courage or as my friend calls it “relaxing juice”.
Cocktails and Mocktails Recipes
The difference between a cocktail and mocktail is leaving out the liquor.
This is how you create our fancy lemonade mocktail:
Gather a nice glass, a pitcher, 4 cups of water, Frozen lemonade, bottle of Lemon Lime soda, and a handle full of fresh berries for a garnish. We like strawberries the best. Then of course you need a lemon because lemonade without a fresh lemon isn’t lemonade. I have made this fancier by dipping the rim of the glass in sugar. I used this technique in my cheap cake decorating post.
We are not big drinkers in my house, but there are some special occasions where we like to break out the mixers and create a fun drink! New Years eve tomorrow is one of those occasions where we like to have a fun drink. My 5 year old often asks why she can’t have the fun looking drink that the rest of us are drinking, and it’s hard to explain to a 5 year old why she can’t. So instead of leaving her out, we like to come up with fun mocktail recipe for her on holidays! This year she has loved all things cranberry, so we decided for New Years eve we would make her a Kids Cranberry Mocktail Recipe for her to drink when the ball drops! This mocktail recipe is super easy to make and your kids will love being able to have a special drink along with the adults! Continue reading
