Make it a Mother’s Day Mocktail!

The following swaps make these Mother’s Day cocktails into the perfect mocktails for baby showers or alcohol-free lifestyles!

  • Swap Champagne or Sparkling Wine for sparking grape juice (will make it sweeter) or non-alcoholic sparkling wine.
  • Swap Crème de cassis or Chambord for Grenadine or other non-alcoholic syrup like raspberry or blackberry syrup
  • Swap Aperol or St. Germaine for grapefruit juice, elderflower tonic, and some agave/simple syrup
  • Swap Coconut rum for a splash of cream of coconut or coconut cream.

Pro Tip – The full line of Fever Tree mixers add a lot of flavor – their elderflower tonic and pink grapefruit especially would go well in any of the cocktails that call for St. Germain or Aperol!
