I love a mixed drink as much as the next broad, but the last thing I need when I’m sweating on the beach is a dehydrating alcoholic beverage. My solution? Mocktails! Sure, mocktails might seem childish to some, but they can also be refreshing, tasty, and even healthy (if you play your cards right)! Last year at the beach, Danielle and I made a couple of Safe Sex on the Beaches (initially attracted to the clever name) using this simple recipe. They were mega delicious, and we both felt fancy while drinking them. We liked them so much that we made several subsequent batches throughout the week. Here’s a picture of us looking classy and enjoying our creation:
Interested in making your own mocktail or virgin drink? Here are a few recipes I’ve had my eye on:
I’m sure I will be making (and have probably already made) at least one of the above on this year’s family beach vacation.
Do you have a favorite mocktail recipe to suggest? If nonalcoholic isn’t your cup of tea, then what’s your favorite grown folks mixed drink?
