St. Patrick’s Day Mocktails for the Family

holiday recipe

The kids have their green outfits ready for St. Patrick’s Day. They’ve crafted shamrock everything and have made green rice cereal treats, green s’mores and green cupcakes. Now what? Now it’s time to keep the holiday spirit going with a few great green mocktails.

Mocktails may look like cocktails, but are far from the real thing. These completely non-alcoholic drinks are easy ways to brighten your family’s party or just treat your child to something special. And bonus — your creative kiddo can help you to mix up the holiday fun.

Sparkling Soda

Bubbly water with crisp, clean ice cubes may seem simple to you. But your child thinks the bubbles are super-special. Turn regular (or clear flavored) seltzer or soda water up a notch with the addition of green ice cubes. Add one drop of green food coloring to each compartment of an ice cube tray. Pour in water and freeze. Drop the cubes into the seltzer and watch them melt. Before your child knows it, they’ll have green bubbles.

Sherbet Surprise

This recipe couldn’t be much easier. Simply scoop green (lime) sherbet into a tall glass of ginger ale. It’s green, refreshing and awesomely enjoyable for St. patrick’s Day.

Lemon Limeade

Squeeze fresh lime juice and a touch of lemon into a cup. Add sparkling water, stir and cool with shamrock-shaped ice cubes (yes, you can buy specialty shamrock cube-makers). Use as much lemon and lime as you/your child wants, depending on how sour your family likes their limeade. Garnish with basil and lime wedges.
