You don’t have to get merry to have a Merry Christmas!
It’s definitely coming up to that time of year – Halloween, Christmas, New Year… it’s the winter party season! But just because you’re not drinking, it doesn’t mean you should be stuck with lime-and-soda. Here are some fantastic mocktails and non-alcoholic alternatives to get you through.
Mulled Cranberry, Apple & Pomegranate
A perfect alternative to Mulled Wine
Mulled wine is such a quintessential winter drink. But if you prefer your mulled drinks a little more mellow, you can’t go past a lovely warm mulled fruit juice. This one uses a lovely combination of fruit juices and spices that will definitely keep you warm this winter!
Eggnog without the alcohol. Or the egg.
Everyone can enjoy a delicious eggnog with this great recipe! Here Vanilla Pudding is cleverly used in place of the eggs, and if you switch out the dairy milk with your favourite dairy-free alternative, you have yourself a Veg-Nog.
Sparkling Raspberry Mocktail
Raise your glass to this one!
Just because you’re not drinking, it doesn’t mean you should miss out on a lovely glass of bubbly! This easy recipe uses frozen raspberries and a lemonade concentrate, along with sparkling white grape juice, to make the perfect alcohol-free alternative to raise your glass with.
On the sauce, without the spirits
Bloody Mary is a hugely popular brunch cocktail, and most places offering them will also be able to whip up a great Virgin Mary as well! Made with tomato juice and flavoured with Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce, this really packs a flavour punch.
Hot Tea Toddy
A lot less risky without the whiskey…
With a great mix of spices, tea and juices, you won’t even miss the whisky in this fantastic take on a traditional winter classic!
