I don’t know about you but the best thing on a hot summer day is an ice-cold drink by the pool. I’ve thrown together my favorite refreshing mocktails to drink all summer long. Let’s get started!
1. Non-Alcoholic Margarita
Margarita’s are a classic refreshing summer drink. But you don’t necessarily need alcohol to have a good time. This mocktail recipe is perfect for a fiesta-themed party or just relaxing by the pool. You’re gonna need pineapple juice, lemon-lime soda, and fresh lemons and limes. Are you craving a drink yet?
2. Virgin Sangria
Sangria is another one of my fav summer drinks. It’s so fruity and yummy! To achieve the same delicious flavor, this recipe uses cherry juice and ginger beer. This mocktail is perfect for a dinner party with friends or a night in with bae. The perfect pick-me-up after a long day. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
3. Frozen Peach Bellini Mocktail
This drink is the definition of a refreshing mocktail. I can imagine drinking this on the white sandy beaches of Mexico, getting a fabulous tan. Okay, I’ll stop day dreaming now. To make it extra icy and sorbet-like, use frozen peaches for this recipe. Then mix with sparkling apple juice, lime juice, and Splenda for extra sweetness. You won’t regret it!
4. Blueberry Lemonade Mocktail
This drink is perfect for summer barbeques and is ultra thirst-quenching. It’s made with blueberry lemonade juice, Sprite, blue Curacao, ice, and maraschino cherries. Yum! I can’t wait to serve this to my friends when the temps hit over 90. Plus, this drink totally reminds me of blue slushies from 7-Eleven. Gotta love nostalgia.
5. Blood Orange Mocktail
This one looks horrifyingly scrumptious! Blood orange is such a fresh flavor for summer. All you need is blood orange juice, coconut water, lime juice, and seltzer water. Super simple and perfect for a chill girl’s night. You need this recipe in your life.
6. Virgin Pina Coladas
Pina Coladas are probably my favorite drink in existence. If you are a coconut pineapple person, you will agree. It’s like dessert in a drink, but without the booze. Whenever I order these I feel like I’m on a tropical vacation. All you need for this refreshing mocktail is pineapple juice, cream of coconut, ice and maraschino cherries. So festive!
7. Mint Basil Sparkler
This drink is super light and equally delish! I can picture drinking this while watching the sunset by the lake near my family’s house. So relaxing. To make this mocktail you need mint leaves, basil leaves, lime juice, soda water, and ground kaffir lime leaves. Extra classy and adult.
8. Rose Lemon Spritzer Mocktail
This sophisticated drink is perfect for a bachelorette party, baby shower, or even a “Big Little Lies” viewing party. You will feel like the Queen of England when you are sipping this elegant mocktail. Plus, it’s absolutely stunning with a pink rose petal garnish. Perfect for an Instagram photoshoot. This recipe calls for rose water, lemon juice, honey, pomegranate juice and sparkling water.
9. Refreshing Mocktails: Strawberry Daquiris
If you love strawberries like me, you will be all over this drink. It’s just what you need to satisfy your sweet tooth this summer. All you need is strawberries, lemonade and crushed ice. Too easy!
