To conclude:

When making alcohol free drinks, use the best quality ingredients for best results.

Fruits and vegetables should be hand picked and they should be fresh to enjoy the great effect of flavours.

Choose ripe and juicy fruits and not over ripe or under ripe fruits.

Home made juice is more flavoursome, and certainly contains more nutrients than packaged juices.

One of the the most important thing to keep in mind in alcohol free drinks is their presentation.

Choose the right glasses and decorate the drinks for instant eye appeal.

Try and fix slices of lemon, orange, apple or pineapple on the top of the glasses before serving.

Rim of the glasses can be frosted with powdered sugar.

Hi Frances Metcalfe!

Thanks for your wonderful comments and appreciation of the article. I am glad to know that you like non alcoholic fruit drinks. Same here. And you are right about the men preferring these drinks, as well. It’s good that people are conscious about their health and what they are eating or drinking.

I do not take alcohol drinks and this inspires me to create all these interesting drinks which are healthy at the same time. When I host parties , I make it a point to make such drinks for women guests and children.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 13, 2016:

They all sound delicious. Thanks for the recipes. We will be sure to try them this summer.

Mary Wickison from Brazil on April 13, 2016:

I don't drink alcohol and so this ideal for me.

In fact, where I use to work, I had a woman come up to me and tell me how she never attended work parties because she was embarrassed to say she didn't drink. When she knew that I was a non-drinker and went, it gave her the courage to attend.

I think drinks like these which look 'grown up' are an excellent way to show kids you don't need to alcohol to have a good time.

I have a Juice board over on Pinterest which I would like to pin this hub to with your permission.

Kaili Bisson from Canada on April 13, 2016:

These look very tasty and I think the carrot/beetroot would be very nutritious too. Thank you for sharing these.
