Surprise Saturday — New Year's Eve Mocktails

Saturday, December 31, 2016

Hello my Lovlies. Since it's New Year's Eve I thought I'd share some mocktails recipes with you.  

I found these mocktail recipes and pictures on Hip2Save and Cooking New York Times.

Why not make New Year's eve fun for the whole family by whipping up some of these super easy mocktails.

Cotton Candy Mocktail 


Sparkling grape juice 
Cotton candy (found at the dollar store)


Fill a glass with cotton candy — then pour sparking grape juice on top.  Watch as it fizzes and turns colors depending on the color(s) of the cotton candy. 

Gummy bears in sparkling grape juice are also a fun and yummy combo. 

Raspberry Sherbet Fizz


Sparkling grape juice 
Raspberry sherbet or sorbet
Pineapple juice
Fresh raspberries for garnish


Scoop some raspberry sherbet into the bottom of a glass. Add a splash of pineapple juice — then fill the rest of the glass with sparkling grape juice.  Garnish with fresh or frozen raspberries.

Fruit Fizz Mocktail


Flavored Sparkling Water (such as La Croix or Soda Stream)
Mango orange juice
Garnish with fresh tangerines and cranberries


Add ice to a glass then pour in ½ juice and ½ sparkling water.  Add fresh fruit such as cranberries and tangerines.  Or, experiment with any of your favorite fruit combinations!

Blackberry Cooler 


¾ oz lime juice
¾ oz lemon juice
1 oz orgeat syrup 
4 or 5 blackberries (plus a few for garnish)

Sprig of rosemary


Vigorously shake citrus juices, orgeat and blackberries with ice.  Strain into a Collins glass filled with crushed ice.  Top with sparkling coconut water.  Garnish with blackberries and a sprig of rosemary.
