Everybody’s a non-drinker sometimes, and that’s where mocktails come in. Whether you’re the designated driver, an expecting mom-to-be, a dieter or just not a drinker at all, you can still enjoy delicious and gorgeous mocktails and non-alcoholic cocktails.

You need a better plan than leaving the rum out of the Rum and Coke. So we’ve put together this list of mocktails, non-alcoholic mixed drinks, and traditional cocktail recipes that taste just as good with or without the alcohol.

This list also helps hosts and hostesses provide their non-drinking guests with beverages that look and taste just as fun as alcohol-based cocktails.

And if this list isn’t enough for you, maybe you need a book full of 100 Zero Proof Cocktails.

Entertaining with Mocktails

You don’t want to be that host or hostess who offers cocktails for the drinking guests and points non-drinkers to a table with cans of soda. It’s fine if that’s what they actually want, but this makes it visually obvious they’re not drinking.

It can also look like you don’t care whether your non-drinking guests are having a fun time. It’s far more thoughtful and memorable to have beautiful looking, delicious drinks for the non-drinkers, too.

So when you’re entertaining, remember you can also dress up mocktails by serving them beautifully. This gives them a glamorous or fun look for your get-together.

Now for the recipes!

Easy Mocktails

Mocktails are non-alcoholic drinks that look and taste like a particular alcoholic cocktail. They even have names designed to remind you of the original cocktail.

Non-alcoholic cocktails aren't designed to remind you of any particular cocktail. They're just delicious and beautiful beverages someone has created to look like a cocktail.

And then there are the classic drink recipes that taste just great without the alcohol, or just need a single ingredient swap to be non-alcoholic.
