a list of non alcoholic alternatives and mocktail recipes

Alcoholic Alternatives

It is always difficult to be the only one who isn't drinking at a party or gathering while all your friends and family are partaking in the refreshments whether you are the DD for the evening, can't drink due to health problems, are sticking to your diet, are pregnant or just don't like to lose control of your inhibitions. I can relate being pregnant at a New Year's Eve party recently, so here are some mocktails and alternatives to alcoholic drinks.

Non Alcoholic Beer and Wine Coolers

'Near Beer' or Non-Alcoholic Beer - if you enjoy the taste of beer but don't want the alcohol you can purchase non-alcoholic beer at the grocery store. There are several different brands to choose from depending on your preference. I personally like Labatt Blue and found I couldn't distinguish between the alcohol and non alcoholic (0.5%) versions.

If you are more into fruity drinks there are also several types and flavours of wine coolers to choose from. If you like coolers then wine coolers are a good alternative choice also with 0.5% alcohol.

If wine is your normal beverage of choice, or even just for a fancier option you can try sparking grape juice which comes in both white and red.

Virgin Ceasers

Virgin ceasers are just as good (if not better) then regular ceasers. A few dashes of Worcestershire, a couple of drops of Franks Red hot (depending on how spicy you like it) and cesear seasoning then top with Clamato juice. I like to add ceaser seasoning to the ceaser as I find its way to salty (and messy) when you line the glass rim. Then top with your favourite garnish - large quarter pickles (my favourite), spicy dilled green beans or a stick of celery.
