The best part of a good mocktail is that it can be served anywhere and to anyone!
If you want something to quench your thirst for a hot summer day or maybe even something just for a Netflix kind of night, these mocktails will be just the thing to hit the spot.
Below are the top choices for the very best of our favorite mocktails!
1. Shirley Temple
I remember as a kid I would always order a Shirley Temple every time I went to a restaurant! I thought I was the absolute coolest when I had this delicious mocktail in my hand!
This drink is a simple combination of grenadine (cherry-flavored syrup) and sprite or 7-up, but the maraschino cherries are my favorite part!
2. Virgin White Peach Sangria
Virgin white peach sangria sounds fancy, doesn't it? It looks fancy, too! This virgin sangria is made by mixing white grape juice, orange juice, a little peach nectar, and an assortment of colorful fruit!
Virgin white peach sangria can easily be made in a pitcher if you want something that will quench the thirst of your guests! Pair this drink with a nice steak, and you will be talking about it for weeks!
3. Virgin Peach Daiquiri
You can't go wrong with peach-flavored mocktails, right? Another must-try mocktail is the virgin peach daiquiri!
This frozen blended drink includes fresh peaches, simple syrup, fresh mint, lemon, and rum extract (though it’s still tasty without it).
4. Cherry Mojito Mocktail
I love all things cherry! The cherry mojito mocktail is a beautiful drink that will truly impress everyone.
Made with muddled sweet cherries, lime, fresh mint, and soda water, this colorful drink is one of my favorites.
Whether made with fresh or frozen cherries, this drink is perfect either way! I'll take two, please!
5. Apple Cider Margarita Mocktail
Fall is the best season of the year, don't you agree? The cooler weather approaches, and I always get a craving for apple cider. Why not try an apple cider margarita mocktail?
I love this spiced margarita because it only requires 2 ingredients- apple cider, and limes! Best of all, it only takes about 10 minutes to make!
This mocktail would be the perfect addition to your next Halloween party!
6. Cherry Lime Sparkler
A cherry lime sparkler just screams 4th of July to me! This bold and refreshing carbonated drink will cool you off in the hot summer sun.
A little seltzer, sugar, lime, and cherries are all you need. I'm convinced that this is the perfect Independence Day mocktail!
7. Watermelon Breeze
Watermelon breeze, please! Nothing is better than a fresh slice of watermelon, so imagine how incredible it would be to drink it!
This drink is made with coconut water, so be cautious if anyone has a coconut allergy. Then you just add some chilled watermelon, lime, and a sprig of mint!
The watermelon breeze is a must-try!
8. Strawberry Mint Soda
Mocktails are great for adults, but what about the kids? Strawberry mint soda is a great drink for children and adults alike.
This refreshing drink is extremely similar to the cherry mojito, but with strawberries instead!
Make it in a punch bowl to serve a large crowd!
9. Sour Cherry Fizz
The sour cherry fizz is a very unique drink because it includes egg whites!
Shake up a little sour cherry puree, egg white, lemon, and cherry soda for a frothy and fun mocktail!
The sour cherry fizz is not only unique, but it is delicious and easy to make!
10. Cranberry Orange Mocktail
Cranberry orange mocktails remind me of the Christmas season! The citrus flavor and the deep red color of the cranberries will make your next holiday party festive and bright!
The cranberry orange mocktail is one of the easiest on this mocktail recipes list because it’s made with a simple combination of cranberry cocktail, orange juice, and club soda. There may not be much to it, but it is so full of bright, fruity flavor!
11. Salted Watermelon Juice
Salted watermelon juice may sound like something that your child mixed together when they were making new creations in the kitchen. But don't be scared of this healthy and nutritious mocktail!
This refreshing drink is perfect for a picnic outing or for relaxing at home!
12. Chile Lime Pineapple Soda
I love a little spice in my life, and the chile lime pineapple soda always hits the spot!
This citrussy mocktail is a little more complex with crushed pink peppercorns and dried chilis, but the extra effort is more than worth it. Create a nice big batch of chili lime soda and serve it to your guests the next time you have a party!
13. Turmeric Spritzer
We all love a good health tonic, right? Well, the turmeric spritzer will not disappoint.
In this soothing mocktail, ginger is muddled with a variety of herbs before being mixed with orange juice, club soda, and honey!
This health-packed spritzer is great for digestion and overall wellness.
14. Spicy Citrus Refresher
The spicy citrus refresher is just what you need after a long day of hard work. This drink has just enough ‘zing’ with a mixture of fresh citrus juices, ginger, jalapeno, and a delicious Tajin rim!
Have the spicy citrus refresher ready and waiting for you when you walk through the door and relax while having a sip!
15. Pina Colada Mocktail
A pina colada is a tropical classic, and a favorite of coconut lovers everywhere.
My love for pineapple and coconut really collide in the best way with this delicious frozen mocktail! Top it with a maraschino cherry, and you’ll feel like you’re in paradise.
16. Mimosa Mocktail
Enjoy a not-so-boozy brunch with a tasty mimosa mocktail recipe in hand! Sparkling apple cider, orange juice, and cranberry juice come together in this bubbly and refreshing mocktail.
