Updated on August 26, 2016

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 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.

Afterglow

You need:

  • 4 parts Orange juice
  • 4 parts Pineapple juice
  • 1 part Grenadine

No, this is not inspired by the INXS song with JD Fortune on vocals. Build the Afterglow in a tall glass. Add ice and serve. This non-alcoholic drink will make you the star of the party. It's not just easy to mix, it’s also light in calories and definitely easy on the budget.

Atomic Cat

You need:

  • 4 oz. Orange juice
  • 4 oz. Tonic water

Experience atomic flavor with an Atomic Cat Mocktail. Combine orange juice and tonic water in a cocktail shaker and mix very well. Strain over a chilled highball glass and the party is on.

Morning Star

You need:

  • 1 tsp. Honey
  • 1 tsp. Sugar
  • 3 Pineapple chunks
  • 10 Pineapple juice
  • Mineral water
  • Vanilla stick

Be blinded by the stellar vision that is the bright Morning Star Mocktail. In a mixing glass, build all ingredients except the vanilla stick. Mix well and pour into a chilled cocktail glass. Finish with a vanilla stick.

Hurricane

You need:

  • 2 oz. Orange juice
  • 2 oz. Cranberry juice
  • 1 oz. Grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz. Apple juice
  • Crushed Ice
  • Orange Slice

Be blown away by this amalgam of fruit flavors. Simply mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake well until the fruit juices are fully infused. Pour into a cocktail glass of your choice and add crushed ice. Finish it off with an orange slice and feel the hurricane of fruit flavors burst in your mouth.

Virgin Mary Mocktail

You need:

  • 4 oz. Tomato juice
  • Dash of lemon juice
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 drops Tabasco sauce
  • Salt
  • Celery stalk for garnish
  • Pickle for garnish (optional)

This drink that can be served as a hangover-free escapade. Indeed, the name speaks for itself. This drink is a lighter and non-alcoholic variation of the Bloody Mary. Mix all ingredients in a highball glass. Use a stirrer and combine thoroughly. Garnish with a stalk of celery and pickles, taste, and say “Hail Virgin Mary— the mocktail”!

Shirley Temple

You need:

  • 4 oz. Ginger ale/Lemon-lime Soda
  • 1/2 oz. Grenadine syrup
  • Twist of lemon peel
  • Thin slice of orange
  • 2 or 3 ice cubes

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.

Baby Orange Fizz Mocktail

You need:

  • 5 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. sweet and sour
  • Soda water
  • Raspberries

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.

Piña Colada

You need:

  • 6 oz. fresh pineapple juice
  • 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.

Mojito

You need:

  • 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.

Mai Tai

You need:

  • 1/2 oz. fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. almond syrup
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. sour mix
  • 3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Maraschino cherry for garnish
  • Crushed ice

Enjoy the taste of a Mai Tai without the rum by simply mixing all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Strain the fruity mixture into an old-fashioned glass filled half-way with ice and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

        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?
