If you’re craving champagne…

Try a sparkling cranberry mocktail.
The tart flavor from the cranberries, along with the sweetness from the Sprite, give this festive drink a unique touch.
If you’re craving a hot toddy…
Try a warm apple cider.
Okay, it might not be as enjoyable as the whiskey-filled cold remedy, but this healthy recipe includes apple cider vinegar and cinnamon for a deliciously decadent treat.
If you’re craving a rich red wine…
Try this grape and fennel soda.
While these grapes aren’t fermented, this recipe makes sure to use fresh ones to really pack in the flavor. Fennel seeds add in more depth to round out the drink.
If you’re craving a sweet white wine…

Sangria in the winter might seem like quite the dichotomy, but trust us: One sip of this mocktail will have you on board in no time. We love the mix of pomegranate, apple, blueberry, and orange juices—they create a wonderful medley of flavors.

Beer doesn’t need to be alcoholic to be fun—and this ginger version proves that point perfectly. This booze-less twist on a Moscow mule can be made in bulk for all your party needs.

While not as hardcore as a vodka soda, this grapefruit mocktail has touches of citrus that almost mimic the taste of alcohol, while the rosemary makes it even more “adult.”
If you’re craving a piña colada…
Try this tangy pink drink.
While not as indulgent as the creamy cocktail, this pink drink adds coconut milk and honey to create a semi-healthy twist on the heavy staple.
If you’re craving a bellini…

Kombucha’s fizzy texture mimics that of your favorite bubbles, while the peaches add the perfect touch of sweetness.
