Welcome to Mocktail Corner. Every Wednesday through the summer, we will be sharing mocktail recipes along with our cocktail recipes (and hey, we may keep it going, you never know.) For now, we hope that you enjoy some of these “mocktail” recipes, and consider offering some at your next get-together.
Whether it be religious reasons, safety or health concerns, lifestyle changes, or even a recovering alcoholic, having a non-alcoholic drink ready to make your guest feel included and welcomed is the mark of a truly seasoned host or hostess!
Today’s mocktail is a refreshing summertime cool-off.
