Non-alcoholic cocktails – or mocktails – shouldn’t be boring. These alcohol-free festive Christmas cocktails are full of great tasting flavour and safe for the whole family to enjoy, making them perfect for allowing kids and teenagers to join in the festivities.
Non-alcoholic Christmas cocktails
Really easy mulled not-wine
This alcohol free mulled “wine” couldn’t be easier to make. Simply warm up our Totally Fruity Mulled Apple & Cinnamon and enjoy! If you want to add a little sweetness, drop some honey in there too. Many coffee houses that stock our products serve our mulled apple and cinnamon drink warm over the festive period as a little non-alcoholic Christmassy tipple, so why not do the same at home? Many of our customers have tried it too – check out the reviews on the product page.
Zesty, spiced apple juice
This warming drink is Christmas in a glass. Once you’ve made the syrup, you can save it and stir it into hot apple juice, our mulled apple & cinnamon, or even wine to add extra spice.
Simply heat up a 250ml bottle of Totally Fruity Just Apple in a saucepan and add 1 tsp allspice, 1 tsp nutmeg, 2 cloves, a strip of fresh ginger, a cinnamon stick, 100g caster sugar, and the zest of a clementine.
If you finely peel the zest from the clementine rather than grating, it makes it easier to strain. Bring it all to the boil and then simmer for around 10 minutes before removing from the heat and allowing to cool. Once cooled, strain the syrup into a bottle.
Add the syrup to taste to warmed Totally Fruity Just Apple or Totally Fruity Mulled Apple & Cinnamon.
Amaretto sour mocktail
Sweet, sharp, and nutty, just like the real thing but without the hangover.
In a blender, blend 100ml pineapple juice together with 50ml lemon juice, ½ an egg white, 10ml syrup from a can of cocktail cherries, and a few drops of almond extract. Blend until pale and the volume is increasing.
Add some ice, if your blender can handle it, and blend again to chill or just stir the ice until it cools the mixture. Pour into some cocktail glasses and serve with the cocktail cherries, if desired.
If you want to look fancy, you can mix it all together in a cocktail shaker instead of a blender – just shake it very hard without the ice.
Christmas punch without the punch
This non-alcoholic Christmas punch is great for kids and adults alike to enjoy, with a little hint of Christmas spices.
Place 2 sliced pears, 1 sliced lemon, 2 tbsp caster sugar, and 1 tsp of mixed spice in a punch bowl or large jug, ensuring the pears and lemon are nicely coated, and chill for an hour to let the fruit become infused with the sugar and spice.
Add the juice of 1 lemon and 400ml grape juice or our Totally Fruity Just Apple, depending on your preference, and stir to dissolve the sugar and spices. Add 275ml ginger ale and 500ml sparkling water and serve with ice.
Virgin Piña Colada
This spiced, alcohol-free piña colada is great for Christmas parties when you want to serve a non-alcoholic cocktail option. The second part of the recipe, for the actual piña colada, is for each serving.
First make the non-alcoholic mock rum syrup by adding 100g dark muscovado sugar to 200ml water and heat gently, stirring until the sugar has completely dissolved. Once the sugar has dissolved, add 5 black peppercorns, 5 cloves, and a cinnamon stick and bring to the boil. Turn the heat off and leave to cool and infuse. Once cold, strain the syrup into a jug or container and put in the fridge until needed.
To make the piña colada, pour 150ml pineapple juice into a glass along with 50ml coconut milk and 25ml lime juice. Stir before adding a handful of ice and slowly adding 25ml of the mock rum syrup – if you add it slowly, it should sink to the bottom, giving your mocktail a 2-tone effect. Garnish with a cherry if you like and enjoy!
This really simple cranberry spritz recipe is great for serving in a wine glass with dinner or as part of a Christmas party.
Simple and delicious!
Alcohol-free Irish Cream Liqueur
Some people enjoy an Irish cream liqueur at Christmas, and you can buy many different types in a bottle from the supermarkets, but this recipe is great if you want the smooth taste without the alcohol. A smidgen of espresso adds a little boost too.
Put 150ml double cream, 50ml evaporated cream, 2 tbsp maple syrup, 25ml espresso (freshly brewed), a pinch of cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and a pinch of finely grated orange zest in a jug or cocktail shaker and shake or stir until combined. Serve over ice.
