As the Christmas period gears up, it’s a time of year where lots of alcohol is in many circles. If you don’t enjoy alcohol, or just fancy an alternative, it can be good to have some drinks that you will enjoy just as much. Here are three alcohol-free drinks that you’ll love.
Virgin Pina Colada
A virgin pina colada is a delicious and tangy ‘mocktail’ (alcohol-free cocktail) that does away with the rum and focuses on the strong pineapple flavor. To make one, you’ll need a cup of pineapple juice, 1/2 a cup of coconut cream, some crushed ice, pineapple slices, and optionally a Maraschino cherry. This drink is so sharp and tangy and may even be improved without the rum flavor.
A mojito is a cocktail with rum, soda water, and a strong lime and mint flavor. A virgin mojito takes all the good flavors minus the rum. To make it you’ll need the juice of one lime, a handful of mint leaves, some ice, soda water, sugar, and some extra lime slices. This will give it a refreshing and sharp taste that will be just as, if not more, delicious than its rum-based version.
This isn’t a mocktail per se, but it will certainly hit the spot if you’re looking for a sophisticated drink without alcohol. To make one, you’ll need a cup of mixed berries, two tablespoons of honey, the juice of two lemons, some sparkling water, ice, and some extra lemon slices and berries. This will be so drinkable that it might be worth making a big batch so that you can keep coming back for more!
