10 Wedding Mocktails for Summer Weddings by LIQS
Happy first day of Summer! It’s our favorite wedding season, when the days are long, the sun is shining, and love is in the air. Last week, we talked about our favorite summer cocktails to serve at your summer wedding, but what happens when some of your guests don’t drink alcohol? You serve them wedding mocktails instead! They are fun and flavorful like cocktails but without a drop of alcohol.
Here are some delicious wedding mocktails, mojitos and spritzers ideas to add to your drink menu if you’re having a summer wedding.
1.) Cherry-Lime Shirley Temple
Add 12 ounces of lemon lime soda, 4 teaspoons grenadine syrup and 4 teaspoons of liquid from a jar of maraschino cherries in a glass. Then, add maraschino cherries, limes, and ice cubes.
2.) Sparkling Grape Sangria
Blend 4 cups of white grape juice with ¾ cup of blueberries and pour into a bowl. Add 1 cup of orange juice and the juice of 1 lime. Place in a jar and add chopped oranges, bananas, limes, some more blueberries and peaches. Let this sangria mocktail stand in the fridge for about two hours.
3.) Pineapple Rosemary Spritzer
In a pitcher, combine 2 cups of chilled pineapple juice and ½ cup of rosemary simple syrup. Fill a glass half full with the pineapple juice mixture and then fill the rest with club soda. Garnish each glass with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a pineapple wedge.
4.) Pome Blue Mojito
Add 10-11 fresh mint leaves, 10 fresh blueberries, 5-ounces acai roots’ pome blue juice, 1-ounce freshly squeezed lime juice into a cocktail shaker. Mix together and pour into a tall glass over ice. Then add a splash of club soda and garnish with blueberries or a mint sprig.
5.) Southern “Unspiked” Peach Iced Tea
This recipe original calls for some vodka, but it’s not required for this delicious summer drink! In a tall glass filled with ice, blend 3 oz. of peach iced tea and 3 oz. of lemonade.Then add fresh sliced peaches and lemon slices and garnish the glass with fresh mint.
6.) Cucumber Lime Punch
In a large pitcher, add ice, a 2-liter bottle of lemon lime soda and 1 12-ounce can of frozen limeade. Then add sliced cucumbers and lime wedges and stir until the limeade melts. Garnish with lime wedges. For a stronger cucumber flavor, let this punch sit in the fridge for about an hour or two.
7.) Berry Mocktail
Combine 2 quarts of cranberry juice cocktail, ½ can of pink lemonade concentrate, and 3 cans of Dasani Berry flavored sparkling water in a large pitcher. Serve over crushed ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
8.) Lady Lavender Mocktail
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 3 ounces of fresh grapefruit juice, ¾ ounce of Lavender Syrup, and ¼ ounce grenadine and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled glass, stir in 2 ounces of chilled club soda, and garnish with a basil sprig and lavender sprigs.
9.) New Mom Mocktail
Add equal parts of apple juice, cranberry juice and orange juice into a pitcher. To make about 12 servings you will need a total of 96 ounces of juice (32 oz per juice type). Stir to combine, then add crushed ice and garnish with Orange wedges.
10.) Cran-Apple Spritzer
Combine equal parts cranberry juice and apple cider. Add lemon-line soda and apples and fresh cranberries for garnish.
