Bloom into spring with these refreshing mocktails

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Bradley U chapter.

Back with more mocktail recipes, and I am as excited as ever. My St. Patrick’s Day mocktails inspired me to share even more mocktail recipes based on the next season. Considering spring is my favorite season, I obviously have to pair it with my favorite mocktail recipes. Pink and sparkly mocktails have taken the internet by storm, and I am fully hoping on this trend. Call me influenced because you will not catch me without one of these refreshing mocktails in my hand.

Mocktails are taking the internet over and it is never to late to hop on this trend. Spring is around the corner and you are going to want something colorful and cool to stay hydrated with.

Pink Panther

The Pink Panther has always been my first love, this light pink mocktail is a perfect side drink to any dessert because of the bite of the grapefruit and raspberry. I don’t necessarily crave sweets so this is a perfect everyday drink if I am feeling a little fancy.

  • 1 ounce raspberry lemonade
  • 1 ounce grapefruit juice
  • 2 ounce lemon-lime soda

I will advise you to chill each liquid before mixing. You can even make ice cubes out of fruit juice or fruit pieces for extra taste.

Lay in the sun

Lay in the Sun has always been a family favorite, my sister especially with her sweet tooth. This drink tends to bring me back to my childhood with the sugary drinks I had at my grandma’s house.

  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces sweet and sour mix
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/4 ounce grenadine syrup
  • 2 ounces passion-fruit flavored sparkling water

All the juices should be chilled and I do not recommend using ice for this drink because it will mess with the consistency and water it down. If you love bright, fun colored drinks, Lay in the Sun is for you!

Pina Colada Mocktail

Pina Colada has always been a spring classic in our household and it is even better as a mocktail so it is fun to share with everyone.

  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup cream of coconut
  • crushed ice

It just takes a few turns with the blender and you have a sweet, cool drink that will keep you from going out of style. I recommend shredded pineapple if you love the taste of pineapple and want that extra texture.
