Let's bring our summers forward a little bit. Have one of my healthy non-alcoholic cocktails after a long day at work. Pick one or two, or take this list of the best mocktails for spring and pre-summer.
Try a different one every day and have a few minutes of relaxation on your couch.
Ginger pineapple cocktail
Here's a recipe for the perfect pineapple mocktail at home. It's very simple and delicious. Only a few ingredients are needed. There is something marvelous about this sparkling, gingery pineapple mocktail, a tropical taste that won't let you forget it any time soon.
Sparkling watermelon limeade
This Watermelon, pomegranate, and lime drink will refresh you. It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite drinks. The refreshing and juicy watermelon certainly comes to mind when we all think of summer fruits. What better way to evoke summer than with this non-alcoholic cocktail?
Cucumber juice limeade
When I served this mocktail to friends, they weren't quite sure about it. Cucumber? Well, they were pleasantly surprised. It's a tasty and refreshing drink with all the properties of cucumber. Try it first, and then let me know what you think.
Iced kiwi starfruit refresher
This is the perfect refreshing and revitalizing mocktail at the end of a busy day. Beautiful to look at and fruity to taste, it will surely make your list of favorites for the season.
Easy, creamy, cold chocolate drink
This mocktail is a perfect choice if you are a chocolate fan. Try this creamy and refreshing chocolate with its extra spicy aroma.
Coconut pineapple limeade
What a beautiful tropical blend! Grab your hat and sunglasses because we're going for a tropical beach vibe with this fruity icy mocktail.
Virgin piña colada
Puerto Rican piña colada is the quintessential tropical cocktail and so easy to convert to a mocktail that it already appears on menus worldwide. Feel like a tropical summer breeze is cooling you with this magnificent mocktail.
Milk and orange juice drink
To stay in the neighborhood, I bring you Morir soñando, the quasi-national drink of the Dominican Republic. With a poetic name that means "to die dreaming," this lovely, silky combination of milk and orange juice is one of my all-time favorite mocktails.
Natural fruit punch
The classic completely spike-able summer drink can also be enjoyed without spirits! Check out this tropical drink combination with bits of fruits afloat. Perfect for celebrating summer.
Pineapple and rice drink
I've left the pera piña, the most unusual drink, for last: a creamy concoction of pineapple rind and rice! A classic children's drink, this is refreshing, nourishing, and a great way of reusing pineapple core and rind in a lovely summer drink.
