Mocktails, Smoothies and Shakes … Oh My!

This posting was inspired by a bride that emailed in to ask a question a while back (did you know you can do that?). I love emails, we will always try to figure out an answer for you. Our column, Ask the Exclusive does just that.

The submitted question was about having non-alcoholic drinks. I actually have a funny story from my wedding … we did not have ANY alcohol, yet we had a sparkling grape juice toast. My alcohol-drinking relatives were CONVINCED that it was alcohol, so they were collecting all of the half full bottles to take home! Good grief … those unmentionable cousins on my dad’s side of the family. Ha!

Below are some websites to peruse for recipes. If you are doing further research, I would suggest searching for “virgin cocktail” or “mocktail” or “virgin mixed drinks”. These make a fun addition for the reception or a shower … test them out!

Have fun trying some of the recipes on the sites below …

http://www.drinksmixer.com/cat/183/ (there are some funny names for them)

http://cocktails.about.com/od/mocktailmocktail/Mocktail_Recipes.htm (this seems to be a really good site)

http://allrecipes.com/Recipes/Drinks/Mocktails/Top.aspx (this is good, and they are rated, which gives confidence!!)

Let me know if you have any favorite non-alcoholic drink recipes or if you have found any sites online in our comments section. I would LOVE to hear from you!
