Because sometimes you want to celebrate the day without a cocktail. Because sometimes you want to make a fun drink that the whole family can enjoy. Because sometimes you just don’t want alcohol.

What is a mocktail?
A mocktail is a non-alcoholic drink that typically resembles a cocktail in appearance and flavor but does not contain any alcohol. Mocktails are often made with a combination of fruit juices, syrups, herbs, and carbonated water or other non-alcoholic mixers. They are popular alternatives to alcoholic drinks for those who do not drink alcohol or who are looking for a healthier option.

Why we love using apples in mocktails
Apples add flavor and sweetness. Apple juice or apple cider can be used as a base for a mocktail, and apple slices or apple wedges can be used as a garnish. Apples can also be muddled with other ingredients, such as herbs or spices, to create unique flavor combinations.
What to serve with your apple mocktails
Serving a snack board with mocktails can enhance the overall experience of enjoying a drink and provide a variety of flavors and textures to complement the drink.
- The flavors and textures of the snacks on a board can complement the flavors of the mocktails, enhancing the overall taste experience. For example, a salty snack can balance out the sweetness of a fruity mocktail.
- Snack boards can be arranged in an attractive and appealing way, they are fun to make! Like this Whipped Ricotta Board with Apples.
