Don’t mock the mocktails. It seems we’ve all experienced one too many hangovers and have decided overindulgence is not an option. Still, socializing with friends sometimes requires a drink or two, and we cheer the existence of non-alcoholic cocktails. Here’s a list of some Non-Alcoholic Cocktail recipes that you can make at home:

1. Ginger Calamansi Cooler

This soft cocktail is a great option for those looking for a spicy kick in their drink. The ginger provides a soothing element apart from the spice that can cool you down. The non-alcoholic bitters provides another layer of flavor while balancing the sweetness of the Sprite. You can use the candied ginger as a stirrer to add more spice and sweetness to the drink.

2. Virgin Salcedo Ave

Cilantro might be offputting for some people. But this drink is a perfect marriage between the cilantro and caramelized lemon. The sweetness of the caramelized lemons balances the distinct flavor of cilantro, and the ginger ale adds bubbliness, resulting in a layered, well-balanced drink. For those that can’t be swayed to get on the cilantro bandwagon, you can substitute it with parsley.

3. Four Berry Iced Tea

A refreshing replacement for high tea, this mocktail reminds us of afternoons in the country, watching the setting sun and relaxing with a good cup, or in this case, mug of cold tea.

4. Pineapple, Mint, and Cucumber Cooler

This is a refreshing mocktail that can be enjoyed at any time of the day, though it’s great to drink during those hot, humid afternoons. The cucumber and mint will cool you down and the pineapple will wake up your palate.

5. Watermelon-Ginger Cooler

This delightful mocktail brings together the juicy watermelon with a slight kick of ginger. Good to serve during afternoon gatherings. We can almost imagine enjoying it in an outdoor BBQ on a warm breezy day.

Suggestion: if you don’t have ginger syrup you can muddle fresh ginger and use simple syrup instead. The syrup measurements for these drinks are just a suggestion. Sweeten your drinks to your own preference.
