The 7 Best Sugar-Free Mocktails for Spring
Spring is finally on its way and we’re ready for some sun, shade, and seasonal ingredients! With outdoor gatherings getting easier again, there’s no better time to break out the glassware for a garden party starring one of our favorite spring traditions — mocktails!
Whether you’re cutting out booze for a diet, for your health, or for a change of pace, sugar-free mocktails are a great alternative. Tangy, refreshing, and guilt-free, we think healthy mocktails are the best way to fill up on flavor.
Here’s our list of the 7 best sugar-free mocktail recipes to rock your spring sipping!
1. Grapefruit Ginger
Starting out, we picked a super-simple three-ingredient mocktail that's certain to perk up those taste-buds! The sharp flavors of grapefruit and ginger mingle perfectly with underlying spice and bitter notes.
2. Apple Margarita
Sweet. Tart. Refreshing. While apple cider might be more of a fall favorite, we guarantee you'll be tasting spring in these cinnamon and lime laced mock-margs.
3. Hibiscus Sangria
Want to make the perfect day even more perfect? Drink this hibiscus sangria in the park instead of the sugar and booze heavy traditional drink. Tangy and naturally hydrating.
4. Vegan Cherry Lime
This fresh and fulfilling hot-weather drink is perfect for sitting and sipping on the porch. With only five ingredients, you can be pouring pitchers of this refreshing mocktail in no time flat!
5. Watermelon Mint Mocktail
We love mocktails with big flavor pairings, especially unexpected ones. This sugar-free mocktail makes melon and mint work wonders! Just make sure you strain it properly.
6. Dragonfruit Mojito
Sugar-free mojito mocktails are all the rage right now, but we picked a recipe going a couple steps above. The semisweet dragonfruit brings a unique, mellow flavor to the bright mint and lime.
7. Blood Orange
Blood orange isn't just a great source of vitamin C, it's also packed with a particular kind of tart and citrus flavor that just can't be matched. Add a hint of vanilla and honey for sweetness, and you've got yourself a mocktail for the ages.
Before you get mixing:
Don't forget to make these drinks your own! Try adding fruits or flavors you already enjoy, play around with portions, or substituting sweeteners. Picking the proper glassware and garnish is half the fun when making mocktails, so get creative!
