Want to celebrate your big day to the fullest but not all your friends drink? Don’t worry, we have a solution to your problem. Now, you can celebrate without worrying about cocktails or other alcoholic beverages. Here’s a list of the top 10 non-alcoholic beverages that you can include in your menu. Mocktails delight everybody!
Pineapple-Orange Sherbet Punch
Sherbert is not just a dessert, but a refreshing drink that will satiate your taste buds. You can serve this mocktail with cute little paper umbrellas. The punch is sort of a distant cousin of the root beer float—or maybe a distant aunt who never leaves the house without a thick layer of pink lipstick and pristinely feathered hair. But unlike the root beer float, which came out of the soda fountains of the 1890s, rainbow sherbet punch’s history is somewhat mysterious.
Blueberry Moscow Mule Mocktails
In addition to having an exotic name, this mocktail tastes heavenly. It will definitely make people ditch good old alcohol. It’s a lively combination of blueberry, sugar and ginger beer spells fun, add a wedge of lime and you are good to go. Moscow mules are really easy cocktails that have been around since about the 1940s. For this version of a flavoured Moscow mule, I made an easy blueberry-ginger simple syrup to add to that great spice in the ginger beer. The end result is something that everyone loves sipping on since it’s literally so hot here in Florida it feels like your covered in baby oil and wrapped in foil and standing on the surface of the sun.
Summer can be extremely uncomfortable, especially in places like India. That is when nature’s gifts come to our rescue. Watermelon and Coconut water is a boon during such times. In India, the roadside would be filled with vendors carrying a tender coconut. They would slice and put a straw in it for you to enjoy the coconut water. This accentuates the watermelon breeze actually! We love the idea of offering up virgin frozen drinks, as they’re perfect treats for kids—and help to beat the heat at outdoor summer weddings. To make this mocktail, simply blend together: 3 cups cubed chilled watermelon, 1 cup coconut water, 1 tsp fresh lime, 1 sprig of mint and ½ cup ice.
Basil Lemonade Punch
When life throws you lemons, make lemonade, they say. So, why not add a dash of basil and make a lip-smacking mocktail that packs a punch. The lemonade is perfect on its own (feel free to omit the basil if you want to Rage Against The Prep.) The secret’s in the syrup. You boil the sugar and water together to make a simple syrup, ensuring that the sugar is completely dissolved. It’s just perfect. The basil honestly doesn’t complicate things too much. Just gives it a lovely aftertaste. This would be the perfect make-ahead drink for your wedding guests. It goes extremely well with brunches and lunches!
Minty Tea Punch
This is for all those who love their cuppa tea. Chai lovers are surely gonna ask for more. Chai is love! In a large saucepan, bring 3 cups water to a boil. Remove from heat; add mint and tea bags. Steep, covered, 3-5 minutes according to taste. Discard mint and tea bags. Stir in orange and lemon juices, sugar and remaining water. Transfer to a pitcher; refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice; add orange and lemon slices to mocktail if desired.
