All of these Christmas mocktails are sure to make your season more merry and bright!
Christmas mocktails are all the rage because the whole family can enjoy them. I am excited to share a few of our favorites with you!
Who knew Christmas mocktails would become so popular? People really are looking for festive alcohol free drink options this holiday season. We have FIVE festive drinks below for you to choose from.
We are showing you how easy it is to make our apple cranberry mocktail spritzer, candy cane martini mocktail, gingerbread martini mocktail, white Christmas mocktail and cranberry White Russian mocktail!
The days of diet cola, water and plain juice are over. We have the most beautiful and delicious Christmas mocktails to share and we can’t wait to have you give them a try!
No matter what the reason you have for avoiding alcohol, whether pregnant, age or religion, you deserve a pretty drink that everyone else will be wondering where they can find it.
As a hostess, I personally love the idea of Christmas mocktails because I can make one batch of drinks for everyone. The kids can join in with the cheers and festivities and I love that!
I almost always incorporate Dry Sparkling soda into my mocktails. It just works so well in place of many hard alcohols like vodka in traditional cocktail recipes.
For something like coffee flavored liquor, I use Dry Sparkling vanilla soda plus some coffee flavored syrup (that doesn’t actually have any coffee).
I use the vanilla flavor most but I also like the cranberry, blood orange, lavender, cucumber and ginger flavors. The cranberry is fantastic in our cranberry White Russian mocktail and the cucumber is great in our cucumber lime mocktail with watermelon ice. We served it up at the cutest cactus succulent baby shower!
Dry Sparkling has less sugar than traditional soda making it much easier to manipulate and use in mocktail recipes. I feel like I have better control of the sweetness when using it.
Alright, it’s time we share our favorite Christmas mocktails with you. Let us know which one you like best and which ones you want to see in the future.
Don’t forget to check out our Halloween mocktails as well. They are so spooky and fun for the scariest day of the year!
Candy Cane Martini Mocktail- Check out the recipe below…
Apple Cranberry Mocktail- Simply place a sprig or rosemary and 4-5 cranberries in a glass with 1 tsp. cranberry simple syrup or cranberry jam. Then just pour in cranberry or vanilla Dry Sparkling soda. Enjoy!
White Christmas Mocktail- Rim your glasses with simple syrup then dip them into a bit of shredded coconut.
In a cocktail shaker, shake 12 oz. Dry Sparkling vanilla soda, 1 C heavy cream and 1 T coffee flavored syrup. Top with a clear rock candy sucker for the icicle effect! To make this a coconutty summer mocktail, simply switch out the coffee flavored syrup for coconut and leave off the rock candy sucker.
