10 Delicious Christmas Non-Alcoholic Mocktails
Classic Eggnog: Enjoy this holiday classic without any of the liquor. You can buy your favorite premade mix and simply omit the bourbon or rum. If you’re feeling adventurous, here’s our favorite recipe for a homemade version.
Blood-Orange Italian Soda: Although you do have to make your own syrup, the results are well worth it. Not only does this holiday mocktail taste amazing, but the color is perfect for an all-girls brunch or dinner party.
Cranberry Pomegranate “Bellinis”: This is the perfect option for a Christmas or holiday brunch party! Simply combine cranberry & pomegranate juice, top with seltzer and some fresh lime juice.
Grinch Punch: If your guests have a sweet tooth or there’s kids in attendance this is a must-have Christmas inspired mocktail!
