We’re rounded up the most mouthwatering mocktails which will have Thanksgiving guests in awe, without seeing double. There’s no reason you can’t get festive while sober!
1. Mulled Apple Cider
Mulled cider is the perfect cozy drink to warm up your bones, for children and adult alike. Add a grownup boozy twist by spiking it and serving warm for a way better alternative to tea. It is somehow sweet, tangy, and spicy at the same time, making it the perfect drink to sip on by the fireplace.
2. Homemade Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte
The inner basic girl in us is secretly craving a pumpkin spicy latte – here’s a GF, vegan twist that makes that indulgence healthier, but still lets you bask in that basic girl glory. Since Starbucks PSL doesn’t even contain pumpkin, this gal made a healthy remix for us.
3. Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate
Those who don’t think the PSL is sweet enough for them can indulge in a pumpkin spice white hot chocolate. For non-coffee drinkers and dessert lovers, this luxurious drink is the perfect replacement.
4. Pumpkin Butterbeer Hot Chocolate
Maybe more of a novelty drink than a serious beverage, this butter-beer is filled with milk chocolate, pumpkin goodness and butter to recreate the Harry Potter experience. Spend you Thanksgiving at Hogwarts with this JK Rowling inspired drink.
5. Sparkling Cranberry Punch
Cranberries, club soda and lemon wedges are the stars of this simple drink which pairs beautifully with turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole and all that other heavenly goodness. Pucker up and embrace this tangy beverage.
6. Caramel Apple Shake
For those of you who count this as a dessert instead of a fall friendly beverage, you’re no fun. It combines caramels and apples in that fun, carnival inspired way without getting stuck in our teeth. It takes just a few minutes and tastes just like fall.
7. Sober Sangria
This non-alcoholic sangria is chock full of cloves, star anise and cinnamon with a kick of pepper ginger. Using pear juice and sparkling water as a bae, apples oranges, pears, and ginger slices are thrown into this festive and flavorful pitcher drink.
8. Non-Alcoholic Moscow Mule Mocktail
This non alcoholic Moscow mule will bloom in your taste buds with minty lime and ginger. It is the ultimate light fall drink, lending crisp, zesty and invigorating flavors. Be sure to serve it in those cute copper mugs!
9. Autumn Smash Cocktail
Forget summer’s gin smash – the autumn smash is taking over. Zings of basil, apples, fig, and lemon are filled with sweet sharpness and add nuance to the flavors. This is easy to make non alcoholic – just swap orange liqueur for orange juice and real caramel for caramel liqueur.
10. Homemade Chai Latte from Scratch
This chai latte made from scratch is way more delicious than its Starbucks rival, deceptively easy to make, and more nutritious. Cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and other spices are swathed in milky goodness and whipped cream.
