Cocktails and Mocktails Recipes

mocktails for kids

   I have kids and unfortunately they are not old enough to drink beverages with alcohol nor do I really want them to be old enough yet or drink. We  developed these Cocktails and Mocktails Recipes for them and myself. I do not drink but I hate going to a party and being the only one that doesn’t drink. I am a girly girl and I love a good looking drink without alcohol. I am the kind of chick that drives people to drink. HA, HA, HA,  what I love about this recipe is you make up the recipe and then you can add a shot of rum or vodka to the drink to make it a cocktail. I find it to be refreshing and lovely without the vodka or rum but others like that extra bit of courage or as my friend calls it “relaxing juice”.

Cocktails and Mocktails Recipes

The difference between a cocktail and mocktail is leaving out the liquor.

This is how you create our fancy lemonade mocktail:


Gather a nice glass, a pitcher, 4 cups of water, Frozen lemonade, bottle of Lemon Lime soda, and a handle full of fresh berries for a garnish. We like strawberries the best. Then of course you need a lemon because lemonade without a fresh lemon isn’t lemonade. I have made this fancier by dipping the rim of the glass in sugar. I used this technique in my cheap cake decorating post.

Finally, you will need to pour the fancy lemonade mocktail into a glass.Then garnish it with a little fruit.

If you want to make this a cocktail instead of all the water you can add 2 cups of rum or vodka.
