My 3 Favorite Fall Mocktails For Crisp Chilly Days
🍁Fall is in full force. The days are shorter and chillier, and the holidays will be here before you know it. It's the perfect time for trying some new festive mocktails!
It's almost impossible to pick my favorites, but these three have to make the top of my list for being easy to make, crowd friendly, and super tasty.
You could serve any of these mocktails to friends and family, and they're so good that I'm pretty sure you'll get no complaints about the fact that they are alcohol free. In no particular order, here are my top 3 picks for delicious fall mocktails!
#1 Non-Alcoholic Apple Cider Mule
You don’t need any fancy bartending equipment for this one, just your copper mule cup!
▪️Fill copper cup with ice
▪️2 oz apple cider
▪️1.5 oz non-alcoholic whiskey alternative (Lyres and Ritual have great options!)
▪️Maple syrup - measure with your heart 💜
▪️Top with ginger beer
▪️Garnish with cinnamon stick and apple
Enjoy! You can see me make this live on IG here.
#2 Cinnamon Non-Alcoholic Whiskey Chai
The perfect cozy combo for chilly nights!
Add to your favorite mocktail glass:
2.5 oz non-alcoholic cinnamon whiskey
1 oz lemon juice
3 dashes of orange bitters
1 oz chai concentrate (I get mine from Trader Joe's).
Stir all together and garnish with a dehydrated orange for a festive touch! Want to see me make it live on IG? Check out this reel.
#3 Pumpkin Espresso Mocktini
I love espresso mocktinis, and the fall twist on this one just makes it all the better! The addition of delicious pumpkin butter takes it to a whole new level.
Add the following to a shaker cup -
2 teaspoons of Trader Joe's pumpkin butter
1.5 ounces Trader Joe's cold brew
1 ounce NA Lyres Coffee Originale
1 ounce half & half
Shake and serve in a chilled martini glass if you want to get fancy! If you don't have a Trader Joe's nearby, you can substitute with other pumpkin butter and alcohol-free coffee liqueur of coffee options. Want to see me make it live on IG? Check it out here.
Making mocktails can help you surf the urge during the holidays (and all year round!) while you’re not drinking. There are so many delicious non-alcoholic options on the market, so don't be afraid to experiment and come up with your own favorite combinations!
