Thanksgiving mocktails are the go to drink this harvest season! Our fresh and gingery non-alcoholic Thanksgiving drink is easy to make and embodies all the best fall flavors.
Thanksgiving Drinks Non-Alcoholic
When it comes to Thanksgiving mocktails, this drink is so simple and yet tastes fantastic! Hints of fall spice like cinnamon and nutmeg marry perfectly with ginger, pomegranate and fresh citrus making this one of the beset fruity mocktail recipes.
The result is a very refreshing mocktail that still has the warmth you want in your Autumn beverage. It’s perfect for serving on our outdoor Thanksgiving dinner table.
And just like with our Halloween mocktails, Christmas mocktails, Valentines mocktails, ginger beer mocktail, and blue lagoon mocktail, there is none of the alcohol, so it’s also family friendly! They are also great if you are pregnant this year at Thanksgiving (here are our favorite mocktails for pregnancy).
What you need
- Ginger beer
- Pomegranate juice
- Pomegranate arils (here is how to cut a pomegranate properly from my friend London from Evolving Table)
- Cinnamon sticks
- Agave syrup

Step 3: Squeeze each cup with half lime and stir gently to combine
Step 4: Top with a dash of fresh ground nutmeg, cinnamon stick and drizzle of agave syrup if desired for more sweetness
Can you add other non-alcoholic spirits?
Definitely! We have a great non-alcoholic gin and tonic that uses a fantastic botanical based spirit that would go great in this recipe.
You could also add non-alcoholic prosecco drink to it as well for a sweet and bubbly addition! And the 0.0% tequila we use in our virgin margarita mocktail would also go great with this Thanksgiving drink non-alcoholic.
While I would recommend our non-alcoholic vodka, it does make a great addition to the drinks you are serving up.
