If you’re not familiar with the concept, a Mocktail is basically all the fun flavors of a mixed drink without the alcohol. Get it?  Non-alcoholic Cocktail = Mocktail.

Mocktails are a great way to experience the unique flavor combination of an adult beverage when you don’t want to drink!

Here are some great non-alcoholic mixed drink ideas for the rest of summer

Alcohol Free Mint Julep

We apologize for being too late for the Kentucky Derby with this one!  This recipe from allrecipes.com is the perfect drink for relaxing on your back porch on a hot summer afternoon.

Sparkling Rosemary Limeade

This unique recipe definitely packs a punch. Its creator says that unlike many limeade recipes that are overly sugary and syrupy,this one hits hard with a bold citrus flavor. Best enjoyed sipped out of a mason jar.

BlackBerry Lavender Lemonade

This mocktail has been described as a “Fancy Arnold Palmer” by its creator, but it’s much more than just lemonade and iced tea. One of the more interesting parts of this recipe is using Maple Syrup as the sweetener!Screen Shot 2014-08-08 at 12.02.18 PM

Virgin Cucumber Mojito

The name says it all, what’s more refreshing that a delicious mojito on a summer evening?  Be sure to use fresh cucumbers for the best results!
