As the temperature gets warmer, I’m excited to make some of my favorite Mocktails.  In case you’re not familiar, a mocktail is a cocktail without alcohol, using drinks such as sodas and juices with any non-alcoholic ingredients to provide flavor. Since I love nicely mixed drinks but not a drinker, Mocktails are my go-tos. They’re very easy to make, all you need is a shaker, ice (optional) and your ingredients. For today’s drink, I opted out of  using a shaker and everything still turned out great.  My cub of choice is also my mason jar and I’m obsessed with this yellow gold reusable stainless steel straws. A friend gifted them to me, they come in different colors and on sale for $9.99- click here to buy yours. The first two recipes are mine and I can’t wait to try the last one which I found online.
