So I’ve rounded up 10 mocktails to put the Jolly in your Holly Jolly Holiday this year. Use it as inspiration for your next party or mix up a batch and bring it to the next soirée. People appreciate a non-alcoholic option!

Drinking Glasses

I abstain from drinking because I’m an alcoholic. And the holidays are tricky, especially the first year of sobriety. Having a signature drink, even if I had to bring it with me and leaving parties early both helped me stay sober during the holidays. You can have a holiday filled with cheer — hold the hangovers.

Cheers!

  1. Thank you, Meredith! These drinks are so elegant and festive for those of us who don’t drink alcohol but still love to party.

  2. Thank you! I have never loved alcohol but loved the look and elevated appeal of nursing a fancy looking drink in my hand at parties. Now I can have a fancy drink in my hand at my own party.

  3. These look & sound so good! Thanks for sharing for those of us who don’t drink. The one with the sherbet—my family has always had lime sherbet & ginger ale in a “fancy” glass as our special after dinner “treat” during the holidays. Just the thought of it warms my heart because it reminds me of my grandmother!

  4. thank you for these gorgeous drinks! I do not drink alcohol due to migraines and bubbly water can be so boring… I am printing these all for the holidays and beyond…. cheers and many blessings… xo I also love topo chico with pomegranate seeds in it – fyi… simple easy fun and pretty….
