Think colorful garnishes and umbrella toothpicks!

1. Honey Blackberry Mint Mocktails

Bubbly, fizzy, and with that delightful blackberry tang, these mocktails are stunning.

They’re the perfect combination of sweet (honey), tart (blackberries, lemon juice), and fresh (mint leaves). 

It takes only 10 minutes to make four of them. And with the blackberries and mint leaves as garnish, they look like drinkable works of art.

4. Blueberry Mocktail With Mint and Lime

This mocktail has so much going on that it’s hard to decide where to start. 

It’s gorgeous for one thing, combining the deep purple of blueberries, the pink of pink lemonade concentrate, and the green of mint leaves and lime.

Plus, it has such a complex flavor, with sweet, sour, and earthy notes all in evidence.

Even the most die-hard whiskey drinker would be hard-pressed to turn down this lovely drink.

5. Lemon Basil Spritzer

If you’re looking for a light, alcohol-free drink that looks festive and exciting, try the lemon basil spritzer. 

It looks amazing, and the basil gives it a little extra something.

Be sure to pick an appropriate glass for this one since it’s clear and doesn’t have many garnishes. In the proper stemware, it’s elegant, classy, and sophisticated.

6. Easy Citrus Strawberry Mocktail

The thing I love most about this pretty-in-pink drink are the chunky, slushy topping and the salted rim. 

This drink is the closest you can get to a strawberry margarita without any tequila on hand.

Dress it up with a strawberry and some lime slices on the side, a pretty umbrella, and a colorful straw. You’ll have the perfect party pleaser.

7. Kiwi Watermelon Spritzer

You’ll love the kiwi watermelon spritzer. It’s delightfully fizzy and insanely easy to make.

It’s made with kiwi, watermelon, ice, and club soda.

The fruits get pureed in a blender, resulting in a creamy, luxurious texture. You won’t be able to resist this one!

8. Blue Hawaii Mocktail

The Blue Hawaii is a delicious tropical mocktail with a stunning blue-green color that’s perfect for the beach.

I can just imagine sitting by the sea, this charming drink in hand, relaxing and sipping on this fabulous concoction.

If this mocktail doesn’t scream summer beach vacation, nothing ever will.

9. Sweet Sunrise Mocktail

The sweet sunrise mocktail truly lives up to its name. The beautiful peach, orange, and pink colors resemble the sun peeking over a mountain. 

It also combines the sweetness of orange-pineapple juice with the slightly bitter tang of grapefruit, orange bitters, and grenadine.

It’s not the real thing, but it’s certainly close.

10. Mango Mojito Mocktail

The crisp freshness of a mojito meets the tanginess of mango in this delightfully yellow mocktail. 

This is the ideal palate cleanser between courses, served over ice with mint leaves and lime slices.

Whatever you do, don’t forget to add the mint leaves.

They look phenomenal against the yellow of the drink.

11. Sparkling Cranberry Kombucha Mocktail

Kombucha already treads that fine line between sweet and bitter. You’ll have a natural mocktail when you add cranberry juice, rosemary, and ginger. 

Of all the drinks on this list, this one was the hardest for me to believe that it didn’t have alcohol in it. 

It’s also a stunning cherry red color, so add a few cranberries. It’s the perfect non-alcoholic Christmas cocktail.

12. Salted Caramel White Russian Mocktail

Traditional White Russians are phenomenal, but when you remove alcohol from the equation, they become pure, sensual decadence. 

And I mean that in the best possible way. 

What more could anyone need for coffee, vanilla extract, sugar, cream, and caramel sauce?

I like to serve this with breakfast on special occasions as a unique, exciting way to start the day.

13. Sparkling Grapefruit Mocktail

The sparkling grapefruit mocktail is light, refreshing, and perfect for brunch or afternoon parties!

It’s also known as “faux rose,” so it looks like you’re drinking wine, even though it’s totally alcohol-free.

This is the perfect sipper to delight and entice your party guests.

14. Virgin Mojito

Mojitos make fabulous mocktails because they have a unique, distinctive flavor long before you add the alcohol. 

Between the mint leaves, limes, club soda, and Mountain Dew, there’s a lot going on in this glass, and it all tastes good.

15. Frozen Lemonade

Nothing quite beats a quenching frozen lemonade on a hot day! And this recipe couldn’t be easier, requiring only three ingredients.

Just blend lemon, ice, and sugar in a blender, and you’ll have a treat to rival the famous Del’s Frozen Lemonade.

This is the perfect sipper to enjoy by the pool!

16. Cucumber Lime Mocktail

I don’t really have a comparison for this mocktail. It’s cool, refreshing, salty, and tart.

It doesn’t taste like any cocktail I’ve ever had, but it’s incredible, nonetheless. 

The lime, mint, and maple syrup add a layer of depth and complexity that plain cucumber water can’t touch.

I love to drink these when I need something fresh and cool that makes my tongue tingle.

17. Non-Alcoholic Moscow Mule

Oh! Earlier, I said the cranberry kombucha tastes the most like the real thing, but I forgot about the non-alcoholic Moscow Mule. 

The heat of ginger tickles your throat, making this drink taste at least as strong as 30-proof liquor.

18. Sangria Mocktail

The trick to making a believable sangria mocktail is using plenty of different fruits and juices. 

This one contains cranberry and pineapple juice, ginger ale, and an abundance of fruit chunks. It has oranges, pears, raspberries, and cranberries. 

Eating the pieces of fruit in the glass is just as yummy as drinking the mocktail itself.

19. Virgin Pina Colada

Take a trip to the islands with this virgin pina colada. It has all the pineapple and coconut flavor you love without the headache the next day!

You can whip it up in the blender in less than 2 minutes. And since there’s no alcohol, it’s a frozen treat the entire family can enjoy.

This recipe is a keeper!

20. Pineapple Virgin Margarita

A thick ring of salt around the rim and a chunk of ginger help round out the flavor of this tropical delight. 

My favorite non-alcoholic drink has always been a bold-flavored margarita. 

This one comes complete with coconut sugar and chunks of pineapple. And every sip helps transport me to an island paradise. 

Plus, it only takes 10 minutes to make four drinks. And yes, all four of them are for me.
