10 Delicious Go-To Mocktail's To Order Next Time You're Out

Everyone deserves to feel special and enjoy a delicious drink, even those on the road to recovery. While alcohol-free bars have steadily risen in popularity, mocktails are still a relatively unknown option for many. This drink can offer the same taste sensation as traditional cocktails without any of the booze. This is also a great deterrent for those of us who choose not to drink and would like to avoid the “why aren’t you drinking” questions that come with attending an event with a glass of water in hand.

Below are ten delicious and trendy drinks for those looking for a tasty night out at a restaurant without drinking alcohol. Each of these recipes is sure to keep your friends and family sipping happily all night long and is excellent for anyone trying to stay sober to recover from alcohol addiction.

1. Virgin Mojito

A virgin mojito is a refreshing and flavorful drink that is perfect for people who are looking for something light and refreshing with a more “adult” vibe. This beverage contains fresh lime juice, sugar syrup, mint leaves, and soda water. This delicious concoction packs all of the zesty and refreshing goodness of a regular mojito without the alcohol content. In addition to being an excellent alternative for those who choose not to drink alcohol, this drink is also incredibly versatile as it can be made with different types of fresh fruit. So whether you're in the mood for a citrusy drink or something sweeter, the Virgin Mojito has you covered.

2. Virgin Bloody Mary

A Virgin Bloody Mary is a nonalcoholic cocktail traditionally made with vodka, tomato or clamato juice, and other savory flavors with options for a spicy kick. It is perfect for those who want to enjoy a delicious and filling drink without alcohol. This drink is ideal for brunch or a midday cocktail and is made with tomato juice, Worcester sauce, Tabasco sauce, celery salt, pepper, and fresh lime juice. Make sure to find a reputable place that makes great Bloody Marys so you can enjoy the perfect balance of flavors in every sip.

3. The Shirley Temple

The Shirley Temple is a classic nonalcoholic drink that has been a favorite with mocktail enthusiasts for years. The drink is named after child actress Shirley Temple and was traditionally made with ginger ale and grenadine. These days, there are many variations of the Shirley Temple, but the original remains the best. The drink is simple to make and only requires ginger ale and grenadine. The ginger provides a fiery kick, while the grenadine gives the drink a smooth, sweet taste. Play around with ginger beer or 7-Up as substitutions to make it your own. It's the perfect balance of flavors for those who love carbonated, sweet beverages.

4. Abstinence On The Beach

The Sex On The Beach is a classic cocktail that everyone can enjoy, regardless of their drinking preference. By omitting the vodka from its recipe, Sex On The Beach becomes Abstinence On The Beach. This mocktail still retains its iconic fruity taste, making it a great choice for those looking for a delicious non-alcoholic option. It is almost like an actual cocktail, made with cranberry juice, orange juice, and a bit of peach puree. You can expect a tasty non-alcoholic cocktail and an outstanding bartending performance because of the peach purée, which requires the bartender to shake it up. Pro tip, add a splash of soda water for a carbonated kick!

5. The SHAMpagne Mimosa

The SHAMpagne Mimosa is an excellent substitute for a simple glass of Champagne or the classic mimosa. With a combination of apple juice and ginger beer, it's a close alternative to the famous French drink, without the alcohol. Not only is it sparkling but it also holds that famous Champagne tartness. Add a splash of orange juice and make is a mock-mimosa, or for a more tart and acidic taste, add a bit of lemon juice. You don't have to have the 'proper stuff' to have fun and this is a great go-to for weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, and brunches.

6. The No Tequila Sunrise

No Tequila Sunrise is a fantastic alternative to the classic tequila sunrise cocktail. It is made with fresh orange juice, grenadine syrup, and club soda and is sure to tantalize your taste buds. The orange juice provides a refreshing sweetness, while the club soda gives it a bubbly kick. The orange slice garnish adds a beautiful pop of color and an extra zesty flavor.

7. The Roy Rogers

The Roy Rogers is a super sweet drink that is perfect for anyone who loves Coca-Cola. It is made with cola and grenadine syrup. It is garnished with a maraschino cherry and is a great alternative to sugary sodas. The Roy Rogers was created as an alternative to the Shirley Temple, which was seen as a “girly drink”. To differentiate the Rogers from the Temple, they used Coca-Cola, which is a famously “manly” drink. If you love sweet drinks but hate the color pink, the Roy Rogers is perfect for you.

8. The Rosemary Maple Sour

The Rosemary Maple Sour is a perfect beverage for anyone who loves herbal flavors. It’s unique combination of soda water, tart rosemary syrup, lemon juice, and maple syrup creates an irresistible flavor profile that will make you want to keep making it all summer long.

10. Arnold Palmer

Arnold Palmer is a non-alcoholic drink made with iced tea and lemonade. The drink is named after Arnold Palmer, a professional golfer known for his love of iced tea and lemonade.

The Benefits of Nonalcoholic

There are many benefits of nonalcoholic beverages, especially for those who are recovering alcoholics, because they can help to:

  • Curb cravings for alcohol
  • Avoid triggers that may lead to relapse: For those in recovery, avoiding triggers is essential. Alcoholic beverages can be a trigger for some people, so avoiding them altogether can be beneficial.
  • Promote sobriety: When consumed instead of alcoholic drinks, it promotes sobriety and allows people in recovery to maintain their commitment to staying sober. It’s also a reminder that you can still have the same fun as those who drink when you’re out on the town or at an event.
  • Be social: Just because someone is in recovery doesn't mean they have to miss out on social gatherings. Mocktails allow people to still participate in events without being tempted by alcohol with people questioning why they aren’t drinking or offering them al alcoholic beverage.
  • Enjoy a tasty drink: Nonalcoholic drinks are beneficial to those in recovery. They provide a delicious and refreshing alternative to alcoholic beverages that everyone can enjoy.
  • Promote healthy living because they are typically made with healthier ingredients than alcoholic drinks, so they can help promote healthier living. This is especially beneficial for those in recovery, who might be more vulnerable to the health risks of drinking. And so goodbye forever to hangovers - you’re in the clear!

Mocktails are a delicious and trendy way for people recovering from alcoholism to enjoy a night out at a restaurant. Many different nonalcoholic recipes can be made to suit any taste, and they are a great way to show that you're still enjoying life while abstaining from alcohol. Whether you're looking for a refreshing drink to enjoy on a hot summer day or a cozy drink to warm up with on a cold winter night, there is sure to be a recipe that will fit the bill.

So next time you plan a night out with friends, remember to include some of these delicious and trendy drinks in your arsenal and remember to be creative! Bartenders are usually more than happy to make something special without the alcohol. You can easily create your own after you figure out your favorite flavor profiles.
