Virgin drinks are becoming more and more popular so it’s always nice to have a go-to list of drinks on hand. Whether you’re an expecting mother (here are our favorite mocktails for pregnancy), designated driver, or choose not to drink, non-alcoholic beverages are a great option.

Some of my favorite virgin drinks include a shirley temple, virgin mojito, virgin mary, ginger beer mocktail, and a pina colada mocktail! Those drinks are super easy to make and also great options to order at a bar.
Most of the mocktails I make are made with a variety of simple syrups an other ingredients that are great for any occasion! I especially love making virgin drinks for christmas and even Valentine’s mocktails.
