Let’s celebrate! There are many celebrations this throughout the year and chances to raise a glass with loved ones. We have pulled together some delicious fancy mocktail recipes for you to try! These are fantastic on their own or easily made into a cocktail.

What is a mocktail?

A mocktail is a celebratory “fancy drink” without alcohol.

Mocktails are perfect for including the kids into the celebrations, for designated drivers, pregnant guests and non-drinkers. There is no reason why you can’t be festive and inclusive (and healthier) without being boring!
