Tropical Mocktail Recipes for Everyone
There are tons of easy mocktail recipes, but we’re going to talk about three simple mocktails that will please everyone: margaritas, pina coladas, and mojitos:
For a margarita mocktail, you’ll need the following for four delicious servings:
- 16 oz. limeade
- 6 oz. orange juice
- 2 oz. simple syrup
- 4-8 oz. club soda
- Sugar and coarse salt
Mix the first four ingredients in a pitcher. Mix the salt and sugar on a small plate. Slice a lime and run it around the rim of your glassware, then dip the rim in the salt and sugar mixture. Ice, pour, and enjoy!
For those who love to put the lime in the coconut, try a pina colada mocktail. Just three ingredients take you directly to the beach:
- 1 c. frozen pineapple chunks
- 2.5 oz coconut cream
- 4 oz. pineapple juice
Blend all three ingredients together. Pour into a glass, garnish with a wedge of fresh pineapple, and serve.
If you’re looking for a mojito mocktail that won’t have you missing the rum, try this recipe for one. It’s easily scaled up, so make a pitcher for your next gathering:
- 10-12 fresh mint leaves (plus more for garnish)
- ½ lime divided into 4 wedges
- 2 T. granulated sugar
- 4 oz. club soda
Muddle the mint and a lime wedge to release both the aromatic oils from the mint and the juice from the lime. Add two more wedges of lime and muddle again. Add ice and club soda and a garnish of fresh mint leaves and the last lime wedge.
With just a few simple ingredients that you might even already have on hand, you can give everyone a reason to celebrate.
