Sunday is that perfect day we look forward to the whole week. From childhood, you must have heard that Sunday means Funday. And for adults and working professionals, this stands true word by word. Now, Sundays mean off from work, office and gathering with friends and family, and organising a house party.  

House party means fun and party means indulging in spirits, alcohol, and food. However, indulging in alcohol is not always an option. There are a variety of mocktails that can be easily prepared at the house party for those who do not want to indulge in cocktails or spirits. Mocktails also known as non-alcoholic cocktails, are not only refreshing and flavourful but also versatile. Mocktails allow the party host to experiment with various combinations of juices, syrups, fruits, and herbs to create unique and appealing concoctions.  

Here are some easy-to-make mocktails that can be prepared for your house party. Whip them up, serve up with garnishes and enjoy!  

  • Virgin Mojito  

This offers a refreshing vibe to the ones who prefer non-alcoholic drinks. This mocktail combines the zesty flavours of fresh mint and lime which are mixed with soda water, creating a delightful concoction. Its vibrant green hue and aromatic fragrance make it an appealing choice for guests craving a light and refreshing drink. The drink is served in either individual glasses or pitchers with mint and slices of lime on top.   

  • Shirley Temple  

Shirley Temple mocktail is a timeless favourite. Named after the famous child star, this delightful drink exudes a vibrant red hue owing to the grenadine syrup that adds an energetic vibe to it. The addition of ginger ale or lemon-lime soda brings a refreshing twist. Served in a classic highball glass with a garnish of maraschino cherries, Shirley Temple adds a touch of sophistication to the party.  

  • Peach Bellini Mocktail  

This elegant mocktail is made with the sweetness of peach puree or nectar that resonates with the summer days. They are mixed with a splash of tangy lemon juice and topped off with sparkling water or soda which creates a bubbly effervescence that dances on the palate. The mocktail is served over ice in elegant glasses.   

  • Virgin Pina Colada  

This mocktail captures the essence of a classic Pina Colada, just without the addition of alcohol. Made with a creamy blend of pineapple juice and coconut milk or cream, the Virgin Pina Colada offers a velvety texture that complements the sweetness. It is served chilled over ice which not only refreshes but also adds a touch of exotic flair.  

  • Berry Sparkler  

This mocktail has a base mixed berry puree, bursting with the sweetness of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. The puree is then poured into glasses filled with ice cubes. Gently lemon-lime soda or sparkling water is added which forms effervescent bubbles. The tartness of the lemon complements the sweetness of the berries.  

  • Cucumber Cooler  

This is the basic and easy way to make mocktails at a house party. This revitalising drink is made with fresh cucumber slices muddled with zesty lime juice, infusing a burst of cool, green flavour. The addition of simple syrup brings a delicate sweetness that balances the tangy citrus notes. The concoction is topped with fizzy soda water and served over ice. It is garnished with sprigs of fragrant mint.  

  • Tropical Sunrise  

This colourful concoction resonates with sunrise over a tropical paradise, with layers of orange and pineapple juices.

It is garnished with a slice of orange.
