Memorial Day Mocktails
With Memorial Day in full swing, what better way to celebrate than with some Memorial Day Mocktails! I personally don’t drink, so I prefer mocktails over cocktails, though most people I know prefer beer for an outdoor BBQ and with all the nice weather we’ve been having, I don’t doubt many of you will be grilling.
I’ve scoured Pinterest for some yummy looking mocktails that I wanted to share with you guys!
Pineapple Cobbler Mocktail
- 1 oz strawberry juice
- 0.5 oz of lime juice
- 3 oz pineapple juice
- club soda
Directions: In a mixing tin, combine the lime and pineapple juice. Shake well. Strain the contents into a highball glass over clean ice. Top with club soda and float the strawberry juice on top. Lastly, garnish with strawberry.
Pink Panther Mocktail
- 4 oz. pineapple juice
- 8 oz. pureed strawberries
- Lite Whipped cream
- Splash of Club Soda (you can substitute diet Sprite or 7-Up)
La Croix Mocktail
- 2 cans of Lime LaCroix
- 12-15 frozen Strawberries
- 2 sprigs of Fresh Mint
- 1 freshly squeezed Lime
- 2 fresh Strawberries(optional)
Directions: Place 6-8 frozen Strawberries in each cup.(This acts as your ice, so it cools and flavors the drink at the same time!) Add leaves of mint from one sprig in each glass. Add 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice to each glass. Top with Lime Lacroix. Add a fresh strawberry to rim if you want to go the extra mile, add a pretty straw, and ENJOY! (this is my “skinny” version. To make sweeter add agave or simple syrup.)
