Why Mocktails Can (and Do) Rock
Let's face it: The old standards - soda, root beer, and water with a twist of lime - are boring and better suited for the under-20 crowd. On the other hand, mocktails, also known as mixed non-alcoholic beverages, offer a more exciting alternative to the old virgin reliables, and can provide savvy imbibers plenty of yummy advantages:
1. Fewer calories
Alcoholic beverages, particularly sugary mixed drinks or fruity, frozen concoctions, can affix copious calories to your daily tally (and, if you're really intoxicated, lead to binge eating caused by poor judgment), adding up to excess pounds in the long run.
The average mixed drink made with one ounce of rum, vodka or whiskey and juice or cola clocks in at over 200 calories. Times that by two or three over the course of the evening and you'll have to run an extra hour on the treadmill just to burn it off!
Mocktails, especially those flavored with just a splash of juice and a club soda base (including our Virgin Cosmo, recipe below), can cut the calorie count down to just 50 calories while still providing plenty of flavor.
However, keep in mind that not all mocktails are low in calories. Consider anything with more than two ounces of juice and any added sugar off-limits for strict dieters, particularly if you are following a low-carb plan.
2. Less expensive
Liquor, wine and spirits are expensive, with top-shelf drinks going for as much as $20 each in pricey bars and restaurants. Mocktails cut out the most expensive ingredient - the booze - whether you're making them from scratch or ordering out. This means you get to sip a satisfying drink and line your pockets with extra green while you're at it.
3. Higher in nutrients
Mocktails made with fresh and/or organic juices, such as pomegranate, orange, mangosteen, goji or acai boast plenty of antioxidants and vitamin C and none of the corn syrup found in colas or syrupy drink mixers.
Using stevia-leaf extract or agave nectar in place of table sugar or simple syrup can also sweeten drinks while providing the body with more stable, diet-friendly sweeteners. Toss in a handful of sliced fruit and you double your healthful pleasure.
4. Everyone can enjoy them
Pregnant women, people on specific medications or with chronic illnesses, designated drivers, children and even the most devout prohibitionists can all enjoy mocktails, making your next party or dinner gathering exceptionally enticing to drinkers and teetolers alike.
Just one or two non-traditional and non-alcoholic options for the revelers on your guest list will be sincerely appreciated - especially if they're delicious enough that your guests who drink abandon their beer for, say, another glass of alcohol-free sangria.

Flavored Ice Cubes
Flavored Ice Cubes
Tired of melting ice causing your drinks to dilute and lose flavor? Try making flavored ice cubes to solve this problem. Small on effort but huge on impact, the flavor of your drinks will slowly transform as the ice melts. Use contrasting colored cubes to contrast for visual impact.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 1-1/2 oz. passionfruit juice, the juice of 1/2 fresh lemon and 4 oz. lemonade. Shake and strain into a Collins glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Kim from Yonkers, NY on January 27, 2012:
I LOVE Shirley temples but the BEST way to make them.. is with CANADA DRY Ginger ale. The flavoring is better with that brand as, with shwepps & segrams if I remember right are a lot stronger in the ginger taste and more carbonated as well as a dry taste where Canada Dry is much smoother.
I've also added this lens to my favorite lenses lens & will be updated later on today.
Shannon from Florida on January 26, 2012:

Mocktails are a great way to play pranks on friends by getting into drinking games or contests with them and make sure you stick with the mocktails, haha. Great list of drinks!
Julianne Gentile from Cleveland, Ohio, US on January 25, 2012:
I love a good fancy drink anytime, but my husband and I aren't really drinkers, so mocktails are fun and we can share them with our teen daughter who loves fruity iced drinks like virgin strawberry margaritas (strawberry smoothie without dairy, basically). I love a spicy Bloody Mary, with or without the alcohol. Thanks for sharing these fun recipe finds.
jimmyworldstar on January 25, 2012:
The Virgin Sangria and Virgin Mojito sound good. They're refreshing drinks on their own!

dannystaple on January 24, 2012:
I don't often drink, sometimes going for months without. I do love these alcohol free cocktails and drinks. I have to remind myself that Cider in the US is a sparkling apple juice, as what I know as Cider would be hard Cider over there. More often that not, when in a bar with friends (socialising), I am drinking orange juice with Lemonade.

sousababy on December 09, 2011:
In Canada, we love our Bloody Caesars . . and the Virgin Caesar (or non-alcoholic version) is great. Here is my recipe: 6 oz clamato juice, 1 - 3 drops of Tobasco, 4 - 6 drops of Worcestershire (depending on how spicy folks want it), salt and pepper. Garnish with a lemon wedge and stick of fresh celery. Traditionally, in bars we first rim top of the glass with celery salt, add ice cubes and then add the ingredients (and stir well).
