8 mocktails recipes for the holiday season

Mocktails

I love looking up new mocktails recipes and experimenting with the mouth-watering ones I adore. Mocktails are fun, refreshing, aesthetically pleasing, and most importantly, inclusive.
They’re great to have at brunch, lunch, or dinner. They’re also a great alternative to sipping on water on a fun day or night out if you’re the designated driver, pregnant, on a diet, or just not in a mood to have an alcoholic drink.

Check out these easy to make recipes below and have fun adding your own twist and creative touch.
