Although I definitely love a good cocktail, like my favorite Triple Citrus Rosemary Pomegranate Margarita, there are times I’d rather not imbibe, but still want something festive, yet healthy too. Enter these 15 Refreshingly Healthy Mocktail Recipes I’ve wrangled up with the help of my food blogger and dietitian nutritionist friends.

All of these recipes are gluten free, vegetarian {most are vegan too}, and are no/low in added sugars. Bonus! Some of them get an antioxidant boost from fresh herbs and spices, or give your belly a dose of microbiome friendly kombucha. Win-win!

So, without further adieu, let’s get this mocktail party started!

  1. I must say that I am a long time fan of your triple citrus pomegranate and rosemary margarita. My husband and (grown-up!) daughter love it too. So thank you! I’ve yet to make it this summer though (historical ulcer flaring up) but I love your menu of yummy non-alcoholic drinks. As it has been super hot in the UK since May I have been making batches of tepache and daily water kefir concoctions to keep my drinks both hydrating and special. Kombucha is next on my list so I will be looking at these from your list xx

  2. I typically don’t drink alcohol so these drinks are right up my alley. Now I can participate in the fun and festivities when I have friends over. I bet you could easily add some alcohol to these for those who do wish to drink.
