Whether you have guests coming over who don’t imbibe, kids who want to partake in the fun, or you’re just looking to cut back on your alcohol consumption, these holiday drinks are for you. They’re more special-feeling than a soda or iced tea, and everyone in the house can enjoy them without worry. What better holiday gift is there than that?
Here’s a party drink that’s adult enough to please the grownups, but without the headache-causing alcohol. It’s ideal mixed with just a little club soda.
Slow Cooker Pear Cider
This from-scratch recipe uses a variety of kinds of pears for a super delicious, comforting, and well-balanced warm winter drink.
This spritzer combines the tastes of the cooler season with the refreshing fizz of warmer weather drinks.
Sparkling Pear & Orange “Champagne” Punch
A non-alcoholic sparkling cider, such as Martinelli’s will sub in all the fizz and flavor you need when making this recipe alcohol-free. But it’s the iconic fruit-filled bundt-pan ice ring that really makes it festive.
Warm Tea-and-Cider Punch
This combo of tea steeped in hot cider is both comforting and reviving. To keep it family-friendly, simply skip the suggested bourbon. If you like, add a teaspoon of alcohol-free vanilla extract to the pot, to replace.
Slow-Cooker Apple Cider
Sometimes the best drink is the simplest. Steep this easy apple cider in your slow cooker and let guest scoop out a cupful on their own.
This easy-but-elegant drink can be tossed together out of ingredients you might have on-hand. But it’s also just a little classier than a can of soda water. Don’t forget the garnish!
Sparkling Honey Vanilla Blood Orange Mocktail
This combo of honey, alcohol-free vanilla, and fresh-squeezed blood orange is guaranteed to brighten any evening, no matter how dark and cold outside it is.
