However, children feel left out with their ordinary juice and soft drinks. Why not let them in on the fun by creating some easy and delicious mocktails so your whole family can enjoy the occasion?

Here is a top five countdown of the best mocktails you should try this Easter:

5. Cranberry and Apple Cider Punch

Ingredients

4 cups apple cider

2 cups cranberry juice

2 cups ginger beer

1 cup orange juice concentrate

Orange and apple slices

 

 

 

 

Method

  1. Combine the cranberry juice, orange juice concentrate, and apple cider in a jug
  2. Refrigerate until chilled

  4. Add orange and apple slices to the punch bowl for flavour
  5. Grab a glass, fill it up, and enjoy!

4. Mockmosa

The Mockmosa is a delicious alcohol-free version of the traditional Mimosa. You can serve it alongside Mimosas, or it can be your tipple when you want to socialize with drinkers but not drink yourself.

An alternative option for a traditional Mimosa. All you need is pulp-free orange juice, and a bottle of White Grapetiser.

Pour 2 cups of orange juice into a jug, and simply add 3 cups of Grapetiser to create a refreshing sparkling drink that your kids will love!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Nojito

The Nojito is a mocktail (non-alcoholic) version of the Mojito, which is just as tasty as the original. All that refreshing mint and lime flavor remains, you just lose the alcohol. It makes a great alternative for non-drinking guests.

4 mint leaves

3 tbsp lime juice

4 tablespoons brown sugar

Sprite

 

 

 

 

Method

1. Place 3 mint leaves, lime juice, and brown sugar into a cocktail glass or a tumbler

2. Use a pestle or the handle of a rolling pin to muddle the mint leaves (press down and rub so as to release the flavour)

3. Fill the glass with Sprite and top it up with ice cubes

4. Use the remaining mind leaf to garnish your Nojito

2. Cuddles on the Beach

Cuddles on the Beach is a mocktail version of Sex on the Beach, with three variations for you to try. This is a really delicious fruit juice drink that looks like a real cocktail and tastes just as great.This is a far less-awkward version of the classic Sex on the Beach.
