Mocktails are a great alternative to alcoholic drinks, that you can drink any time of the day and won’t leave you feeling worse for wear when you wake up in the morning! We’ve compiled a varied list of mocktails from classic to sweet to savoury so whatever flavours you are into we’ve got you covered.

Non-alcoholic Mojito

Mojitos are perfect when you need something refreshing for a little pick-me-up. This one is by Colleen Graham and can be found on the spruce eats website. The prep time is 5 minutes, so it won’t take long for you to make this little treat for you and your friends. 

Chocolate martini

If you’re a bit of a sweet tooth this recipe by Savour the Favour is sure to hit the spot. It’s fairly easy to make but does require a few ingredients and contains a lot of dairy, so that might be something to consider. Other than that, this chocolaty concoction would be a great dessert to serve after dinner or a little sweet treat throughout the day. 

Virgin Bloody Mary

This is for all those of you that enjoy a little spice and prefer savoury flavours. Gina Homolka has made the perfect drink for you over on Skinny Taste. The perk of making it yourself is that you can control how much spice you want for the perfect balance every time!

Kissing on the Beach

This now PG-friendly drink is such a classic student cocktail. I’m sure we’ve all ordered a pitcher or two of this in Wetherspoons in the past, and now you can enjoy it only leaving the house for the ingredients.  This one from Always Use Butter is simple and probably the easiest recipe to make out of this list, by just taking out the vodka and replacing the peach schnapps with passion fruit juice. 

Virgin pina colada

Summer is coming and we can’t wait to make this virgin pina colada. This is another one-off The spruce eats recipes and hits the spot every time. Most of the ingredients can be found in your local supermarket but this recipe does require some alteration if you don’t have a blender. 

Any of these are perfect if you’re looking for something to do from your own home with your friends or little ones you might have in your life, or even make them for a simple little date night that won’t break the bank.
