Marvelous Mocktails ~ Red Apple Delight non-alcoholic drinks recipe

When you cut alcohol out of your life you quickly find that there aren’t many options at social events. Sure, non-alcoholic drinks such as coffee, tea and pop are usually served but let’s get real, if you’re like me you’ve always associated special drinks with having fun.

I’m happy to introduce my newest endeavor here on Sober Julie Doing Life, I aim to provide fabulous non-alcoholic mocktail recipes to the World!!!

Once a week I will provide recipes for Marvelous Mocktails, these will be drinks we’ve compiled here at our house and actually enjoy!!

As a host you must provide alternatives for people who don’t drink alcohol, there are countless reasons why people abstain and having a non-alcoholic choice will allow the guest to feel included in your event.

  1. I was thinking about this actually at the conference. Sure there are the usual drinks as you mentioned but they don’t readily make available the non-alcoholic versions. You can ask for them without alcohol however but you have to pay to same price which hardly seems right. Thanks for the tasty looking recipe; I’ll have to try this one. :) Shared/tweeted!

  2. Yum! I might try and make this tonight, I still feel a little flat sometimes on a Friday that there’s no ‘drinkies’ to look forward to like there used to be. Having said that I DO NOT miss Saturday hangovers! Will have to hunt out the grenadine syrup. I went to a hotel bar for cocktails last Saturday and had the most delicious mocktail..makes me want to experiment more! Cheers xxx
