So I’ve put together a curation of the best drink recipes for teenagers, some of whom are young adults, that are not only delicious but also suitably grown-up.
Whether you want to make a mocktail to ensure teens feel included in family celebrations or for a teen birthday party one of these recipes is sure to be the perfect fit.
Whilst I think it’s important to make sure that mocktails for kids veer more to the fun side than simply alcohol-free versions of adult cocktails, I do think it’s fine to create virgin versions of cocktails for teens, so I’ve included alcohol-free recipes that are takes on classic cocktails such as espresso martinis and margaritas.
I’ve gone for mocktails that are as aesthetically pleasing as they are delicious to drink, because let’s face it, part of the novelty of a great cocktail is drinking it up with your eyes before taking a sip.
13 AESTHETICALLY PLEASING, TASTE-BUD TANTALISING MOCKTAILS FOR TEENS
Passion fruit is not only delicious but also looks great in a cocktail glass. This wonderful mocktail recipe has just three ingredients but is full of flavour. Garnish it with a little flower detail and a slice of lime for a truly beautiful drink to serve at a teen birthday party.
Now, bear with me, as this recipe is for both a pear cocktail and mocktail. Don't worry, the instructions are easy to follow, so you won't get in a muddle. But I just had to include this recipe, because, well, just look at how beautiful these mocktails look.
This elderflower rose mocktail is simply the most beautiful drink in this roundup. It's a little more sophisticated as well, combining pomegranate juice. orange bitters and rose water with elderflower cordial.
This easy appletini mocktail recipe is a non-alcoholic version of a classic apple martini. It has great visual appeal, which would make it a super fun addition for a birthday party or celebration for teens.
Now, you may be wondering how this differs from an iced coffee. Well, they aren't so far apart, but this one is served in cocktail glasses and is a fabulous drink to serve at the end of a dinner party where you don't want the teens to miss out on an after dinner cocktail.
