I know the holidays are a time for indulgence, but you don’t need booze to make it festive. And these non-alcoholic Christmas drinks are proof.
From dreamy hot chocolate to fun and fruity mocktails, you won’t miss the booze one bit.
As much as I love some bubbly on Christmas morning and a tipple after dinner, I don’t always enjoy the feeling the next day.
And between the festive feast and all those sweet treats, I wouldn’t blame you if you decided to stay sober this holiday season.
Luckily, whether you’re trying to avoid a hangover or just want something bright and sweet everyone can enjoy, these non-alcoholic Christmas drinks are perfect.
Easy Christmas Mocktails and More!
Everyone thinks of pumpkin pie as a Thanksgiving dessert. Fortunately, it tastes just as good on Christmas as it does on Turkey Day.
This year, save yourself a few calories and put your pie in a glass.
It’s a sweet, delicious drink full of pumpkin spice yumminess.
Hot chocolate has always been a holiday staple in my house. And this rich, peppermint version is one of my faves.
Made in the slow cooker, this makes the whole house smell like Christmas.
And the blend of sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, vanilla, milk, cream, and crushed candy canes is to die for.
This five-minute drink has all the yummy adjectives. It’s bright, light, sweet, tangy, tart, zingy, creamy, and more!
It’s unbelievably simple to make, too.
There’s even an adult version with vodka if you want to indulge. Honestly, though, it doesn’t need it.
It’s delicious and decadent, just the way it is. And you can’t deny it looks beyond impressive.
These elegant white cocktails are sweet, creamy, and delightfully minty.
Better still, you can whip them up in just five minutes with five simple ingredients.
As long as you like peppermint, you’ll enjoy them.
Fruity and bright, this Christmas punch is fun, festive, and ready in a flash. And like most punch recipes, it’s super easy to leave out the alcohol.
In this case, you’ll omit the white rum and add extra lemon-lime soda instead.
It’s a fizzy, bubbly drink with a tart and tangy taste the whole family will love. Load it with as much (or as little) fruit as you like and enjoy!
If you want to get really creative, add pomegranate arils to your ice trays. That way, every chunk will have a couple of bright, shimmery red arils inside.
It’s a lovely addition to the already pretty punch.
You won’t need a stick for these s’mores! Instead, you get all the campfire goodness in a hot mug of hot chocolate.
These gorgeous drinks take just 10 minutes to pull together. And they’re perfect for sipping around a blazing fire.
Typically, sangria starts with a bottle of wine. To that, you add lots of fruit and sometimes extra booze.
But this one calls for non-alcoholic red wine. (Certain fruit juices would also suffice.)
Sweetened with maple syrup, you’ll throw in a sparkling beverage to give it some pep.
It looks and feels just like the real thing. And according to some people, it tastes even better.
I like anything I can whip up in a snap.
Of course, that’s not all these one-minute mocktails have going for them. They’re also lovely, bubbling, and delicious.
Their elegant appearance makes them perfect for any holiday party – formal or not.
Drop in a rosemary sprig or some cranberries to make them even more festive.
Orange and cranberry is one of my go-to holiday pairings when baking. And in this mocktail, they’re tart, tangy, and deliciously citrusy.
It’s impossible not to love this one.
There’s also a generous amount of apple cider to round out the fruity taste. It’s light, bright, beautiful, and just fizzy enough to tickle your nose.
These stunning, hot pink drinks look like the perfect summer cocktails.
Surprisingly, they’re neither summer-only drinks nor cocktails. Instead, they’re mocktails with pomegranate and mint flavors that are ideal for winter.
If you decide to make these, be sure to whip up enough for the whole party. Anyone who sees them will want to try one.
This simple, four-ingredient drink is full of sparkly cranberry goodness.
It’s tart, tangy, and not overly sweet. The zingy flavor gives the mocktail a delightful kick, but there’s no booze in sight.
Make these for Christmas, or anytime you want a classy mocktail. You won’t be sorry you did.
I don’t care what anyone says; apple cider isn’t just for fall.
The sweet and fruity flavors with delicious, warm spices are perfect from September to March (maybe even April if it’s still chilly!).
Between the cinnamon, ginger, star anise, and cloves, it’s a beautiful hot drink to keep you cozy.
You’ll also add a dash of orange juice to help lighten the overall flavor. Fall or not, it’s divine.
You can’t have a list of Christmas drinks without eggnog. So, here’s the obligatory thick, creamy, vanilla-flavored, and gently spiced recipe.
There’s no alcohol in it, but it tastes perfect. And it’s so good, you can use it to make any eggnog cocktail – with or without the booze.
This pumpkin milkshake is the same as the one at Aunty Gravity’s in the Magic Kingdom. And it’s absolutely enchanting.
Cool, creamy, and sweet as sin, I won’t say it’s the best pumpkin milkshake you’ll ever drink, but…
No, you know what? I will say that. It’s the best pumpkin milkshake you’ll ever drink.
Do you love the fruity, spiced taste of Christmas pudding? Then you’ll love this Christmas pudding mocktail.
It tastes exactly like holiday pud, only it’s lighter, brighter, and even fruitier.
It needs several hours for the flavors to infuse properly. So, it’s best to make this one a day ahead of time.
And hey, that leaves you with one less thing to do on the day of your party. Sounds like a win-win to me!
We talked about non-alcoholic sangria earlier. Now we’ll look at a recipe for non-alcoholic mulled wine that’s just as delectable.
It’s a warm, spiced, and exquisite drink the whole family will adore. It tastes so good that your guests won’t even care that there’s no alcohol in it.
It’s the kind of drink that simultaneously warms your heart and belly.
Best of all, you can make it on the stove or in a slow cooker. Either way, it’s a straightforward recipe to follow.
Remember: the slow cooker takes longer, but it’s also less hands-on work.
I love a good Moscow Mule. They’re crisp, icy cold, and invigorating.
This one doesn’t have any alcohol, but it’s still all three of those things.
The ginger beer makes an excellent fizzy base (and you can use alcoholic if you like).
Meanwhile, the cranberry juice adds a tart tanginess that pairs well with the zippy lime juice.
Roll the cranberries in sanding sugar or edible glitter for an extra festive treat. It makes them even more sparkly and lovely.
Forget the whiskey because this spiced Christmas coffee is the only thing you’ll want this season!
Robust, earthy coffee that’s sweet, spiced, and topped with whipped cream is about as dreamy as it gets.
It’s one cup-a-joe that tastes so good even the kids will want to try it. If cozy, comforting coffee is your thing, you’ll love it.
Ruby red mocktails are ideal for Christmas – especially if you make them with cranberry juice, orange sugar, and ginger beer.
I’m not sure why, but these always give me serious Harry Potter vibes.
And since we watch Harry Potter every Christmas, these fit right in with the fun.
Wassail is one of those quintessential drinks we all love – even if you’ve never heard of it.
It’s a mixture of hot mulled cider and spices that’s perfect for holiday gatherings.
Served warm, it’s sure to get you into the Christmas spirit.
It’s impossible not to enjoy this colorful, fruit-filled mocktail.
It takes just five minutes to make and combines three simple ingredients in equal measure: Winter Spiced Cranberry Sprite, Simply Apple, and Simply Cranberry juice.
Mix them, add your garnishes and fruit, and it’s ready to serve.
*Note: You can make this one with regular Sprite, but it’s not as good. It loses a little something when using a plain lemon-lime soda. Still, it’s pretty tasty, even without the special Sprite.
Are you looking for a fizzy, bubbly punch that isn’t too heavy? Then this is the recipe for you.
It’s easy to make, and it’s sure to please everyone at your party.
Plus, it’s packed with antioxidants, making it a healthy choice, too.
I mean, raspberry sherbet is fruit, right? It has raspberries right there in the name!
There’s nothing wrong with good, old-fashioned hot chocolate. But look how much prettier this white version is!
It’s also creamy, minty, and chock-full of yummy flavors.
You can’t beat it if you want a more elegant, formal drink.
Ever dip a gingerbread cookie into a warm latte? This slow cooker drink tastes a lot like that.
Full of warm spices and plenty of milk, this latte recipe is a must-make.
It takes some time, but most of that is hands-off. The slow cooker does most of the work once you’ve added the ingredients, so you can sit back and relax.
Try this recipe if you need a caffeinated pick-me-up that’s also sweet and spicy.
This lovely Christmas punch has a unique flavor that’s somewhat hard to describe.
It’s like apple cider, chai tea, fruit juice, and ginger ale, all rolled into one.
There are plenty of bold ingredients that shouldn’t pair well together. But, somehow, they do, anyway.
This recipe is an excellent option if you want a refreshing, fruity fall or winter punch.
