These mocktails for kids are easy mocktails that are great for the whole family. You will love the taste and your kids will love drinking a fancy drink.
First off, what is a mocktail? It is basically a non-alcoholic cocktail; it is the same recipe and has the same flavor as a cocktail but takes out the alcohol.
Mocktails are a good option for special occasions because they allow options for everyone, not just those who are 21+. Non-alcoholic drinks are also great for those who choose not to drink alcohol.
They are great for New Year’s Eve, a birthday party, a baby shower, and many other special events. They are especially a great option for kids’ parties. The kiddos will love having a fun drink to enjoy in a pretty glass.
What are mocktails made of?
Some people wonder if mocktails are just juice, but that isn’t the case! Juices like orange juice, cranberry juice, grape juice, and grapefruit juice can be used in non-alcoholic drinks, but there is much more to it.
