Have you ever been to a party where the only thing to drink was wine or tap water? Don't get me wrong, I am a total wine-o and would 100% survive, but when you have guests who can't (what's up to all my preggers babes out there!) or who prefer not to indulge it's important to serve beverages that make them feel included and just as much of the party as your boozy guests! It's your duty as the ultimate hostess, after all! 

With that said, my goal was to create 4 cocktails that are just as pretty and delicious with or without the booze! These fruity and herbal creations are gorgeous, quick to mix up, perfect for summer entertaining, and relatively healthy ;) especially if you make them as mocktails using a new favorite zero calorie mixer, Be Mixed! These are literally sure to please every one of your guests one way or another! 1. Berry Spiced Margarita

Add some heat to a berry classic! Muddle some of your favorite berries, shake up the margarita mix with ice and soda water, and add a jalapeño slice ( or more if you really like it hot ;)

 Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. Be-Mixed Margarita
  • Handful of mixed berries- blueberries, raspberries, blackberries
  • 1 slice of jalepeño
  • 2 oz. soda water 
  • 1.5 oz tequila (optional)

2. Cucumber Mint Faux-jito

Stay cool with the mojito's sober-yet-bubbly cousin. To prepare, squeeze lime juice onto some fresh mint and cucumber. Muddle. Add ice. Combine the mixer with soda water and pour over ice. Decorate with cucumber slices and more lime for a fresh touch! 

 Ingredients: 

  • 4 oz. Be Mixed Cucumber Mint
  • 1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Cucumber slices
  • Soda Water
  • 1.5oz rum (optional)

     

    3. Basil Watermelon Mocktail

    Smash watermelon, basil, and lemon in a shaker. Add mixer and ice. Shake, strain, and serve.

    Ingredients:

    • 4 oz. Be Mixed Cucumber Mint
    • Watermelon cubes
    • Basil Leaves
    • Lemon wedge
    • 1.5oz tequila or vodka

        4. Strawberry Cucumber and Lime Cooler

        Blend cucumbers, strawberries, mixer, lime juice and water until there are no visible chunks of fruits. Strain the contents, pressing the fruit to get the most of the flavors. Sweeten with agave and add ice!

         Ingredients:

        • 2 cucumbers, peeled and roughly chopped
        • 12 oz.  strawberries,
        • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice

        Cheers friends!
