Easy Mocktail Recipes That Are Perfect For Any Occasion

When done in moderation, drinking alcohol is lots of fun. But not everyone can manage that, and for sure kids shouldn’t be indulging: that’s where mocktails can come in! Just like cocktails but non-alcoholic, they’re delicious and easy to make. Here are some of the best mocktail recipes gathered from crafters all around the internet. Make them for yourself and perhaps you won’t ever go back to cocktails again!

Salted Watermelon Juice

The popular food-and-drink website Bon Appetit posted this mocktail recipe in 2018 as part of its Healthyish Farmers’ Market Challenge. And rest assured that watermelon is indeed an extremely healthy fruit.

Consuming watermelon can give you lots of important nutrients and antioxidants. The fruit also helps keep you hydrated and potentially — research is still being done — contains properties that could help fight cancer. So it’s a great choice for a healthy mocktail.

Salted Watermelon Juice recipe

This watermelon mocktail is easy to create. Simply blend your watermelon and then strain it through a sieve into your pitcher. You might need to press down on it a little to ensure all the juice comes out.

Add some salt, and then pour the combined mixture into a glass filled with ice. For a final finishing touch, add some lime wedges to the rim of the glass.

Blueberry Dragon

This exciting-sounding mocktail comes via the popular Instagram account What’s Marisa Drinking? It’s not only tasty, but very aesthetically pleasing as well. After you make one, don’t forget to snap a photo or two!

As with all mocktails, feel free to embellish it to your heart’s content. Hey, since it’s called “blueberry dragon” you could even stick a little dragon toy on the glass rim!

Making a Blueberry Dragon is super-easy. According to the website, all you need is 2 fluid ounces of dragonfruit syrup, which you can either buy it or make it yourself, 1 ounce of fresh lime juice, and some sparkling coconut water.

Once you have all these ingredients assembled, mix them all together and then add some frozen blueberries on top. The result is a delicious sour drink perfect for any occasion.
