Virgin Drinks, Anyone?
I decided to put together a set of cocktail drinks that will fill your glasses or mugs. The twist is that these drinks are 100% alcohol-free.
Making drinks that are alcohol-free is easier and cheaper. They're also healthier, whether you're trying to lose weight or just don't want the alcohol in your body. If you think that no alcohol means no fun, check out this list! You might be pleasantly surprised.

For those of you who don’t know, Shirley Temple was a famous actress who started her career at a very young age. She is famous for her role as Sara Crewe in the movie A Little Princess, made back in the late 1930s. No wonder this sweet and non-alcoholic drink is named after her. How we can taste Shirley Temple’s sweetness? It's easy. You just have to mix all ingredients in a tall glass, add ice cubes, and garnish with a slice of orange and a maraschino cherry.
7. Baby Orange Fizz Mocktail

Who says that mocktails can’t be fizzy? You can try it by coupling orange juice, sweet and sour, and soda water in a highball glass. Your Baby Orange Fizz is conceived. Last, drop in raspberries and indulge.
8. Piña Colada

- 2 oz. coconut cream
- 1 cup ice (crushed)
Get a load of Mexican goodness by taking your piña colada to the next level. Take the light rum out and combine fresh pineapple juice, coconut cream, and crushed ice in a cocktail glass. Mix well and top off with a slice of fresh pineapple. Use a uniquely shaped straw to sip the creamy goodness.
- 1 1/2 oz club soda
- 3 fresh mint sprigs
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Delight into the minty taste of Cuba, minus the kick of the white rum. Muddle the sugar, mint leaves, and a little club soda in a highball glass. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice, club soda, lime wedges, Angostura bitters, and ice cubes. Mix with a stirrer and garnish with mint sprigs. You have created the heaven called Havana.
10. Mai Tai

Thanks for the recipes and ideas. Just curious, but doesn't the angostura bitters have alcohol, 44% in it? I realize that it is only a few drops called for, in the recipes, so would it still be considered non-alcoholic?
