Brilliant Non-Alcoholic Cocktails Everyone Loves

Non-alcoholic cocktails don’t have to be a bummer. And, there
are an increasing number of reasons to enjoy them over their boozy
counterpoints. For example, if you’re pregnant, if you’re
attempting to improve your health overall, if you’re taking a
break from alcohol, or if you’re just tired of waking up a bit
groggy.

Winding Down with a Drink

That said, having something special to drink at the end of a day
is a favorite ritual. A celebration of sorts, and a way for to
transition from to-do list mode, into a more relaxed frame of mind.
I’m hoping these will provide some booze-free inspiration. Play
around with aqua frescas, shrubs, kombuchas, and fresh fruit
syrups. All can be fun components in mocktail type drinks. I like
to keep the components in nice jars and decanters, and serve in
pretty glassware. Enjoy!

1. Rose &
Rhubarb Soda
– (QUITOKEETO) Keep blushy pink
rhubarb syrup on hand, and you’re just a splash away from a
special soda. Love this for brunches, and if you serve the syrup on
the side everyone can sweeten to their liking. Get the

Hibiscus, Lemongrass, Basil, and Honey Sweet Iced Tea

– (Half Baked Harvest)
If there’s hibiscus being brewed, I’m drinking it. Especially
if something like this! I love the tangy sourness of this flower,
and the incredible saturation of (anti-oxidant-packed) color.

3. Beet-Sumac
Soda
– (Healthyish)
Just look at that color! Fresh beet juice is paired with a quick
syrup made from tangy sumac. Then you have bit of spritz from soda
water, and a jolt of fresh lemon. Love this for autumn. Get the recipe

4.
Homemade Tarragon Soda
– (101 Cookbooks)
This is what you do with any leftover tarragon you find in your
refrigerator. When you steep sprigs of it, the scent is like
falling into a cloud of anise, and fennel, and green-ish black
licorice. Making a syrup from it is simple, keeps well
refrigerated, and makes a beautiful soda.Get

6. Tangerine
Rosemary Mocktail
– (The Merrythought)
Herbal citrus drinks are a weakness, and I love the unexpected use
of tangerine juice here. The rosemary syrup is made separately,
which is nice because you can sweeten to taste easily. Get

soda. Get
