Gluten-Free Mocktails

With the weather warming up, all I want to do at the end of the day is sit out on our patio/deck & drink refreshing cocktails.  Since I don’t think downing multiple cocktails each day is probably the best idea, I have been experimenting with “mocktails”.  They are just as refreshing, lower in calorie and you can still drive safely after more than one of them. 


My latest creation is based on a simple vodka and cranberry, minus the vodka.  


I use La Croix pure sparkling water with a splash of 100% cranberry juice and a fresh lime.  For this particular drink, I used the lemon version of La Croix, though I would love to try the new coconut variety in this!  I can see using the coconut with pineapple juice!  YUM!  The La Croix Facebook page is full of mocktail recipes and a coupon for $1.00 off of a 12-pack. 

Mocktails are also great options for big “drinking holidays” so that you can still feel like you are part of the celebration without the effects of alcohol. 

Do you have a favorite go-to mocktail?

  • Mmmm…. mocktails! Just what I need as the weather is getting warmer and we're preparing to landscape our backyard. I look forward to sitting out on a new patio with something like this!

    My aunt made me a mocktail when I was visiting her in Florida, it was: ice, fresh-squeezed lime juice, drop the lime in the glass, top off with tonic water and a splash of grenadine. It was pretty tasty.
