Mocktails Three Ways

Mocktails are one of the biggest trends in beverages. As noted by the Washington Post, Yes, mocktails are having their moment. And while it’s hard to take faux anything seriously, this latest trend isn’t as trivial as it may sound. Sales of non-alcoholic beverages spiked 33%, to $331 million in the last year, NielsenIQ reported this fall.

Unique, refreshing, and alcohol-free drinks are perfect for parties, happy hours and family dinners. From fruity to savory, there are so many options when it comes to mixing up a mocktail. We recently mixed up three mocktails using some unique drink mixers from Tastefully Simple. Check ‘em out.

Watermelon Strawberry Slush Mocktail 

This mocktail was made using Strawberry Breeze Margarita Mix, fresh watermelon, ripe strawberries and ice. Frosty and frozen, this mocktail is reminiscent of a smoothie, but with a bit more sophistication. Your friends will love it. Your kids will love it. You will love it.

Citrus Margarita Mocktail 

This classic-inspired drink was mixed up with the sugar-free, super-low-calorie Margarita Mixer and juice, topped with sparkling water. The squeeze of fresh lime juice makes this drink SO refreshing. Try this on taco night or with a weekend brunch. Yum!

Bloody Mary Mocktail 

So simple and so amazingly delicious. This classic bevvie, made with Bloody Mary Mixer, tomato juice and a dash of hot sauce (we recommend Jalapeño Lime Hot Sauce), is the tastiest savory beverage you can enjoy any time of the day. It’s so good you won’t even miss the vodka used in a traditional Bloody Mary. You can even add garnishes like olives, pickles, celery and cubes of meat and cheese to make a snack in a glass.

Tip: Don’t forget the garnishes. Make your mocktail extra special by rimming the glasses with sugar or salt. Add thin slices of melon, berries or citrus for a professional finish that makes the mocktails fun to drink.

Bonus Tip: You can easily mix up a flavorful mocktail using Tastefully Simple drink buckets. Each bucket includes a mocktail (alcohol-free version) recipe right on the label.
