We all want to feel included in the party… so, whether you are the designated driver, sober for a reason, or just choose not to drink alcohol, here’s some options to keep you in the party atmosphere!
Bartenders are well equipped with options, just ask. Be sure they put your “mocktail” in a cocktail glass and no one will know the difference.
Let’s use our imaginations to see how many “mocktails” a bartender may be able to whip up for you using only the standard contents behind a typical bar, for example:
- Cranberry, orange, strawberry, pineapple, apple, grape, lime, lemon, or coconut juice
- Soda water, sparkling water, or Ginger Ale
- Lemon, lime, or orange wedges
- Ice cubes or crushed ice and a blender
