Try a Non-Alcoholic Roy Rogers! Just Cola & Grenadine!

Virgin Margarita

For those who love a festive cocktail that bites back a little, but prefers to forgo the tequila, virgin margaritas are the perfect choice! If you are making these yourself, be sure to check the label on pre-made, store-bought margarita sour mix. Some products contain a minimal amount of alcohol. If you want a true virgin cocktail, choose a sour mix that is 100% non-alcoholic. You can also make your own sour mix with fresh limes, lemons, and simple syrup. To make a virgin margarita, simply replace tequila with club soda or lemonade, and combine with margarita sour mix. Don’t forget the salted rims!

Recipe:
⇀ 2 oz. Lemonade
⇀ 2 oz. Virgin Sour Mix
⇀ Salt Rim of Glass
Garnish with Lime Wheel!

Virgin Cosmopolitan

The classic comso contains citrus-flavored vodka and orange-flavored liqueur (triple sec). If you prefer a virgin version of this popular cocktail, simply replace the citrus vodka with lemonade and the orange-flavored liqueur with orange juice. Then add the fresh squeezed lime juice and cranberry juice to finish it off! If you want to add some flair, serve it in a martini glass!

Recipe:
⇀ ½ oz. OJ
⇀ 1 ½ oz. Lemonade
⇀ ½ oz. Fresh lime juice
⇀ 1 oz. Cranberry juice
Garnish with Lime Wheel!

Shirley Temple

This is a delightful drink because of its pretty color and sweet flavors. The alcoholic version of this mocktail is called The Dirty Shirley, which contains vodka or white rum. But if you would like the alcohol-free version, simply combine grenadine (non-alcoholic sweet and tart bar syrup), cherry juice, and clear soda together for a delicious sweet treat. Clear sodas that work well in Shirley Temples include lemon-lime soda, ginger ale, and club soda. For a boy version, combine cola with grenadine to make a Roy Rogers!

Recipe:
⇀ Glass of Clear Soda
⇀ Splash of Grenadine
Garnish With a Maraschino Cherry!

Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri

Daiquiris are popular blended drinks that can easily be altered and enjoyed without alcohol. They come in all sorts of flavors, but strawberry seems to be the most popular. Traditional daiquiris are made with rum or vodka, but you can forgo the alcohol and simply enjoy the frozen strawberry slush instead. Virgin daiquiris are probably the easiest and most versatile mocktail to make since they are essentially smoothies.

Recipe:
⇀ ½ oz. Simple Syrup
⇀ 1 oz. Lime juice
⇀ 1 Cup Strawberries or Strawberry Puree
Blend With Ice Until Smooth! Garnish With Maraschino® Cherries

Virgin Mary

While many might assume that a Bloody Mary without vodka is just tomato juice, this is far from the truth. You can create a non-alcoholic version of this classic morning cocktail without sacrificing flavor! A Bloody Mary contains many other ingredients aside from alcohol and tomato juice, so it is the perfect virgin drink if you are looking for great taste. Just like a daiquiri, all you have to do is forgo the vodka to create a delicious Bloody Mary mocktail!

Recipe:
⇀ 3 oz. Tomato Juice (Sub vegetable juice for added zest)
⇀ ½ oz. Lemon Juice
⇀ Dash of Worcestershire Sauce
⇀ Dash of Hot Sauce
⇀ Dash of Celery Salt
⇀ Salt & Pepper
Garnish With a Strip of Bacon, a Shrimp Cocktail Skewer, Celery Stick, and Green Olives!
