TIP OF THE DAY: Christmas Mocktail Menu

More and more people don’t drink alcohol, and seek club soda or soft drinks at parties.

If some of your guests fall into that category, why not create a “Mocktail Menu?”

It’s quite easy, and it will bring them some extra holiday cheer.

Some suggestions:

  • Jingle Belle: 7-Up, bitters and raspberry-mint garnish (see photo).
  • Merry Cranberry: cranberry juice spritzer, with club soda or ginger ale and a mint garnish.
  • Virgin Mary: virgin Bloody Mary and a celery stick garnish (make your own Mary mix with the recipe below—it’s so much better than store-bought).
  •  
    Even guests who do drink alcohol may turn to the Mocktail Menu for their third drinks, and beyond.

     
    RECIPE: VIRGIN BLOODY MARY

    This is the same mixture used for a regular Bloody Mary, just without the vodka.

    Our recipe makes a spicy drink with lots of flavor and just 41 calories per 8-ounce glass. Plus, it has 74% of the daily requirement of vitamin C and 22% of vitamin A.

    As an alternative to horseradish you can use 6 drops of hot sauce, but the horseradish adds much better flavor.

    If you don’t want any heat, use more Worcestershire and lemon juice; then experiment with a drop or two of hot sauce to round out the flavors.

    Ingredients For Four 8-Ounce Drinks

  • 32-ounce bottle tomato juice
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • Juice of a fresh lemon or lime
  • Garnish: 4 celery sticks
  •  
    Preparation

    Combine the ingredients and chill. Before serving, stir or shake the mix.

    If it’s well chilled, there’s no need for ice, that dilutes the drink.
