19 Mocktails You'll Actually Want to Drink

It's rare that I find myself at a party with any creative, non-alcoholic offerings. There'll be spritzers and margs as far as the eye can see, but nary a mocktail in sight. Personally, I love a boozy beverage here and there, but when I'm just not in the mood, or I can't imbibe for whatever reason, getting stuck with water or soda is a real drag.

That's why mocktails (mock cocktails, for the uninitiated) will be appearing at all of my parties from now on. I'll admit, I've definitely overlooked them in the past, but not anymore. Though they get a reputation for being kind of boring, a good mocktail is far from it. Made with a variety of different spices, fruits, vegetables, herbs, juices, and more, they can be just as exciting as their boozy counterparts. And the best part is, you can serve them as they are and keep a bottle or two of spirits around for any guests who'd like them spiked—that way, everyone wins.

Of all the mocktails out there, these 19 are some of the most exciting. They include classics like bloody Marys and mojitos (minus the booze, of course) as well as unique inventions that use ingredients like kombucha and coconut water to amp things up. They're so good, everyone will love them.
