3 Fruity mocktails for summer sipping
While the adults have their drinks, the kids can join in too with their colorful fruit juices dressed like cocktails.
Happy hours shouldn’t just be about the cocktails we drink but the company too. Here are three great-tasting mocktail recipes for the kids while we drink our real cocktails. But I think I might want to join in their mocktail party too.
These drinks went through a taste test with my own kids. Who else could say if they are good or not? All drinks were finished quickly in one sitting, and there were favorites and requests for second rounds, confirming that these “cocktails” are very kid friendly.
Blueberry and grapefruit spritzer recipe
Grapefruit soda can stand alone as a drink, but with the addition of crushed blueberries, mint and lime, the overall taste changes to a more delightful combination of fruity flavors. It’s crisp and refreshing.
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- 3 fresh mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- Grapefruit soda, chilled
- In a glass, crush the blueberries and mint.
- Add the lime juice.
- Pour the grapefruit sparkling soda until almost full. Serve cold.
Nonalcoholic strawberry margarita recipe
Who doesn’t love strawberries? We are big lovers of strawberries at home, so I frequently buy them to use in different kinds of recipes. My kids’ favorite is when I chop them up and macerate them with lingonberry syrup sprinkled with chopped fresh mint. That is exactly from where I adapted this margarita recipe, and I’m sure you’ve guessed that this is the big winner among these drinks.
- Colored sugar
- 1 slice lime
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1 tablespoon lingonberry syrup (can be replaced with other sweeteners or berry-based syrup)
- 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- Tonic water
- On a saucer, pour the sugar, and spread it around.
- Pass the slice of lime on the rim of the glass to wet it, and then turn it upside down on the saucer to cover the rim with sugar. Set aside.
- In a blender, place the strawberries, lingonberry syrup, lime juice and ice. Pulse until the mixture becomes smooth.
- Pour the mixture into the glass, and then add the tonic water until full. Stir.
- Garnish with the slice of lime, and serve immediately.
Green apple and pineapple mock mojito recipe

Iced teas tend to get watered down as the ice in your cup melts. Trisha solves that problem by shaking her lemon simple syrup-sweetened tea in a cocktail shaker with ice &mdash and straining the chilled tea into a martini glass for the perfect mocktail.
Ina skips the vodka in this Bloody Mary-inspired mocktail, making it the perfect choice for breakfast or a booze-free brunch.

Calling all chocolate lovers! Bobby amps up classic chocolate milk with extra sweetness and some crushed ice for a drink that&rsquos reminiscent of a frozen mudslide. Best of all, he serves it in a martini glass &mdash with a chocolate sprinkle rim!
This mocktail with homemade cranberry syrup and fresh lime juice is tart, slightly sweet and completely refreshing.
Some of the best cocktails will whisk you away to a sunny island with the very first sip. Why should a mocktail be any different? This sweet and refreshing punch will remind you of the ocean &mdash and a touch of pineapple juice gives it just a hint of tropical flavor.
Turn your favorite coconut-flavored seltzer into a bubbly virgin pina colada.
Mock Grapefruit-Pom Paloma
This refreshing fizzy drink swaps out tequila for the pleasant pucker of grapefruit and pomegranate juices.
Five minutes and five ingredients are all you need to mix up two of these non-alcoholic drinks. Make sure you opt for ginger beer (as opposed to ginger ale). It&rsquos spicier &mdash and the perfect balance for sweet mango.

You'll hardly miss the vodka with this effervescent mock Moscow mule. The candied ginger garnish adds a little sugar and spice.
Blood orange, thyme and ginger beer (it's non-alcoholic) make this mocktail light, bright and refreshing. If you've never tried it, ginger beer is a spicier, more intensely flavored alternative to ginger ale, and is also delicious on its own.
Sunny's Grapefruit-Coconut Cooler
You don&rsquot need a ton of ingredients to make a great mixed drink. Sunny proves it with her 3-ingredient mocktail. She mixes grapefruit juice, cream of coconut and agave nectar for a sweet and refreshing sip that&rsquos sure to please.
Virgin Mango Margaritas
Break out the blender! Ree&rsquos mixing up refreshing, mango margarita-inspired slushies. She uses lemon-lime soda to give this simple, speedy frozen mocktail it&rsquos familiar flavor.

Winter Spice Lemonade
Turn simple, homemade lemonade into an alcohol-free, party-worthy sip by adding fresh ginger, star anise and cinnamon sticks.
Orange Cream Mimosa
When it comes to mixology, it&rsquos good to have choices. And, non-alcoholic mixed drinks are no exception. Grab whatever you have on hand (non-alcoholic sparkling wine, sparkling cider or ginger ale) and use it to top off a simple, homemade orange cream for a fizzy and delicious drink.
GZ&rsquos perfect-for-fall punch is made with apple cider, maple syrup, pear puree and plenty of ground cinnamon. A touch of sparkling cider gives this booze-free beverage a few bubbles, making it feel just like a fizzy mixed drink.
Mock Mango Fizz
Fruity and refreshing, this mango mocktail has all the trappings of a cocktail &mdash except the tequila.
- Don't substitute ginger ale. It will reduce the flavor significantly.
- Does it taste too strong? Add more orange juice.
- Want to use a cocktail shaker? Put all the ingredients in, except the carbonated drink. Shake, then strain into glass.
- Want to make it ahead for a party? Put all the ingredients, except the carbonated drink in a pitcher. See notes for increased quantities.
This was another easy drink to throw together
Although it took a little bit longer to come together than the first recipe, Zakarian's sparkling mocktail was still easy to make.
I filled a cocktail shaker with ice, then added the mango, pineapple, and freshly squeezed lime juices. I shook it all together for about 10 seconds, then strained the mix into an ice-filled glass, leaving a bit of room at the top to pour in the ginger beer.
I garnished the finished product with a pineapple wedge and a slice of mango.
