Entertaining requires plenty of advance preparation and making sure all your incoming guests have what they need is the key to a successful event. However, accommodating everyone can be near-impossible with the ever-growing list of dietary restrictions and preferences. Drinks can be especially tricky, but non-alcoholic drinks that can be prepared in big batches can make things much easier.
No host has time to play short-order bartender while entertaining guests, which is what makes big-batch, non-alcoholic mocktails a must for any party. Non-alcoholic drinks, or mocktails, are an easy way to make sure that no matter your guest list, everyone will have a delicious drink to sip on throughout the night (or day!). If some prefer to add a boozy accompaniment to their glass, so be it — and others will be pleased as punch without.
Here’s a list of our favourite big-batch non-alcoholic drinks we’ll be mixing up before we host!
Caramel Apple Mocktail
If you like caramel apples, you’re going to love this festive beverage. We’ll tell you upfront, there’s a bit of legwork that goes in to crafting this gorgeous drink—but if you’re game… it might just be the crown jewel of your affair!
You don’t need to celebrate Christmas to enjoy this non-alcoholic riff on mulled wine. In lieu of wine, grape juice is warmed with delicious spices to create a stunning, yet simple drink for a crowd.
Non-Alcoholic Winter Sangria
This sangria is the perfect crowd-pleaser for your next gathering. Not only is the beverage stunning, but the citrus and cranberry flavours are hard to pass up.
White Chocolate Peppermint Mocktini
Few flavours go together quite as well as chocolate and peppermint. This non-alcoholic twist on a decadent martini is a fabulous and festive beverage to offer your friends and family.
Grapefruit Ginger Lemonade Mocktail
The flavours of citrus and ginger go perfectly together in this deliciously bright beverage. Everyone will enjoy this effervescent drink that is simple to prepare. Our tip? Make two batches.
