What is a mocktail?
Just in case you’re wondering what a mocktail is, it’s a drink that doesn’t contain any alcohol. And while they might have names like they do or even suggest that by the way they look, they’re kid-friendly and okay for all to drink.
Can you make a mocktail with alcohol?
You can, but then that transitions it into a cocktail, which is a whole other drink in itself.
Although, it’s pretty simple to transition a mocktail recipe into a cocktail one by simply adding in your favorite alcoholic beverage.
