When you're in the mood for a festive beverage without any wine or spirits in the recipe, a mocktail fits the bill. It's important for the mocktail to taste great and to look a little fancier than a regular glass of iced tea or lemonade. And with these recipes, you can always add a little vodka or gin when you feel like having something a little stronger.
Lemon Grapefruit Soda Mocktail 1 small lemon ½ ounce grapefruit simple syrup ½ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice 3 ounces Italian grapefruit soda
Directions: Cut the ends off of a lemon, then use a lemon rinder to strip away pieces of the lemon, creating a striped affect. Mix the grapefruit simple syrup with the lemon juice, then add the Italian soda and striped lemon wheels.
