A mocktail is basically a version of the cocktail that doesn’t contain alcohol. The alcoholic component is usually replaced with something else that has the same bite like grape juice for wine, or sparkling apple juice for apple cider.

Whether you’re keeping it halal or your new year resolution is to drink less alcohol (or you just can’t drink for personal reasons), you should try one of these 8 mocktails on your next outing.

1. PIÑA COLADA MOCKTAIL

A classic piña colada has one part coconut cream, one part white rum and three parts pineapple juice. Leave out the rum and you have pure, beachy, mocktail deliciousness.

This virgin Pina Colada recipe tastes just like the original–but without the alcohol even Kids will love it.

INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cups frozen unsweetened pineapple chunks
1/4 cup ice
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
Optional: 1 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar

2. STRAWBERRY-BANANA MARGARITA

Replace the triple sec and tequila in a classic margarita with fresh-squeezed lime juice and orange juice, and blend with bananas and strawberries. It might not look like a classic margarita, but it works.

3. MOCKMOSA

If you’re keeping things alcohol-free at brunch, you can still enjoy an alcohol-free mimosa. Mimosas are made with orange juice and champagne, which can be substituted for grape juice.

4. VIRGIN MARTINI/ZOBOTINI

James Bond’s favourite drink can still come ‘shaken, not stirred’ and without a drop of alcohol! Skip the vermouth and gin and substitute instead with tonic water, lemon juice, some bitters and green olive juice. You can add a dash of apple juice to elevate your mocktail to an appletini, or zobo for a zobotini.

5. KITCHEN BUTTERFLY’S AGBALUMO-SOURSOP MOCKTAIL

Kitchen Butterfly’s mocktail invention has it all: it is citrusy, sweet, fresh, sour and has a creamy finish. It’s a combination of her soursop cream and agbalumo lemonade, finished with a spritz of lime juice. This is definitely one of those mocktails to make on a lazy weekend and enjoy with friends.

Where did you try the best mocktail you’ve ever had?
