What is a Mocktail?
Before we start making our own mocktail recipes, let’s go over exactly what they are.
They’re a play on the word cocktail, and mocktails are the non-alcoholic versions. They are made using a range of fruit juices and other soft drinks to create appealing and delicious drinks that are made specifically without alcohol.
They can also contain fruit and other herbs such as mint for extra flavor and garnishing. Mocktails are often made to look appealing and fun and are frequently used in place of alcoholic cocktails to celebrate with.
