30+ Vegan Mocktail Recipes – Better Than Booze!

Trying to keep a clear head but still want to party with pals? Try these vegan mocktail recipes!

By Lora O’Brien

No matter what the occasion, when you’re with a group of friends having a party, inevitably, alcohol will be served as a popular refreshment. But it can be far from hydrating – or healthy. In fact, if you drank 200 ml of beer for example, you’d pee out 320ml of water, obviously leaving your body seriously dehydrated.

Sure, you can drink alcohol in a sensible fashion (1 boozy drink followed by 1.5 cups of water) – or you could just ditch it completely in favour of these tasty mocktails!

Here, I’ve collected 30+ vegan mocktail recipes for the most delicious and hydrating non-alcoholic drinks to serve at your next gathering, whether it’s brunch, lunch or a dinner party. But if you really miss the booze, you can make 2 pitchers: one cocktail pitcher with some alcohol (vodka goes with pretty much everything; gin is great for citrusy blends) and one without; just alternate your drinks and you’ll be fine!

30+ Vegan Mocktail Recipes – Better Than Booze!

2. Sparkling Chia Kombucha Mocktail

When it comes to cocktails, I like them to be refreshing, and this mocktail is the perfect summer refreshment.
