CAN’T take alcohol but want to join in the holiday celebration? Why not have glasses of mocktails instead?
Perhaps the biggest reason why mocktails are all the rage, especially during festive celebrations such as Christmas and the New Year is that they look and feel like cocktails but there’s no alcohol in it so everyone—including kids—can enjoy a drink or two. And the celebration becomes doubly fun and exciting.
The best mocktails are the ones that taste so good but are actually easy to prepare. So, Welch’s, an American brand of juices that is best known for its classic grape juice, recommends its line of sparkling grape juices to make mocktails with. With two flavors to choose from—Sparkling White Grape Juice Cocktail and Sparkling Red Grape Juice Cocktail—each Welch’s beverage gives a special fizz to mocktails this holiday season.
Take this easy mocktail, Honey Grape Mocktini, which is a cinch to prepare using Welch’s Sparkling White Grape Juice Cocktail.
