Now, for all of us under 18’s or non-drinkers (like myself), mocktails are pretty damn awesome. You can still have all the fancy glasses, flavours and fun with a mocktail, yet they’re half the price of a cocktail and you can keep going all night long! So, for all avid mocktail fans, I’ve gathered 5 ah-mazing recipes from Pinterest. Here we go!
5 Moreish Mocktail Recipes
The Strawberry & Pineapple Shaker
Doesn’t this mocktail already sound to die for? Personally I am obsessed with anything remotely exotic or tropical-like, so this just floats my boat. The recipe is super easy to follow with just 4 simple steps - 4 steps to heaven. And, what’s even better is that it comes out a gorgeous pastel pink color. Instagram ready mocktail or what?

The Italian Cream Soda
Italian Cream Soda was something I’d never heard of before now, and boy have I been missing out. This cream-based mocktail contains syrup(which you can make yourself), ice and sparkling water, so like the first recipe, it’s easy-peasy! This mocktail will be perfect for those with a very sweet tooth. Mmm.

The Roy Rogers Mocktail
If we’re gonna do this, we’re gonna do this properly, so of course I needed to find a tall cocktail look-a-like. This Roy Rogers Mocktail is made purely with Grenadine and Pepsi, yet it still looks the part - so much so that it even has a cherry on the top! What more could you want?

The Ombré Grapefruit Mocktail
Now, if this isn’t the most eye-catching mocktail ever I don’t know what is - who doesn’t love a sugared rim-glass? This mocktail is made up of grenadine, grapefruit juice, syrup, sprite and ice, creating the ultimate fruity yet fizzy mix. The orange to pink effect is due to the different densities of the ingredients (clever, huh?) giving it an impressive appearance. I’m in love.

Piña Colada O' Clock
What do you instantly think of when you taste coconut & pineapple? I thought so. VACAY! This virgin piña colada is the taste of the summer, and even though summer has been and gone, there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of reminiscence. Mocktails which have the consistency of a milkshake or a smoothie are my fave, they just taste so much better! And, you’re not gonna believe this, but, you can make this in 1 step. Yep, you did read that right.
