Planning a 4th of July party? Don’t forget the kids! These 4th of July Mocktails are super festive and totally family friendly!
Don’t Forget the Kids!
When I have gatherings for family and friends, I love to create a special drink for the occasion, such as my fav Thanksgiving Margaritas.
But then I realized that there wasn’t anything special for the kids! Or any guests who may not want to drink.
So I put together a collection of fun 4th of July mocktails — all of these red white and blue drinks are family friendly, made with NO alcohol!
What is a Mocktail?
A mocktail is a cocktail without alcohol. Often they are modified versions of a real cocktail recipe, such as a virgin daiquiri.
However, we’ve included a wide variety of kid friendly red white and blue drinks on our list. Some are smoothies, slushies, etc. that may or may not be inspired by an actual cocktail.
They are simply fun and festive drinks that everyone at the party can enjoy!
