Even if you drink alcohol, have you tried the tasty alternatives called mocktails? They’re great just for yourself, but if you’re throwing a party, they’ll keep everybody happy. Plus, there are many healthy ways to fix them. In fact, they’re as easy as 1-2-3.
Step 1: Start with a base
Try one of these:
- Club soda
- Seltzer water
- Mineral water
- Sugar-free tonic water
Step 2: Add flavor
Try a splash or two of:
- 100 percent fruit juice, such as cherry, cranberry, mango or apple
- Herbal tea
- Coconut water
Step 3: Add a good-for- you garnish
Go for fresh or frozen fruit, sliced or whole. Add zest with a citrus peel or two. Fresh herbs are a tasty option too—think mint, rosemary or basil.
For a crowd, try putting out an assortment of ingredients. Your guests will have fun mixing and matching them. Add little paper umbrellas and swizzle sticks for a festive touch.
