Cocktails are refreshing and flavorful, so it’s no wonder they’re a popular choice when the weather heats up.

In fact, they can be so enticing that they’re hard to pass up – even when you’re not trying to get drunk at noon.

If you have more than one, you may be setting yourself up for a nasty hangover.

These delicious drinks also present a challenge for pregnant women, children who want to try them, and people with health issues that keep them from drinking alcohol.

When alcohol for all just won’t cut it, mocktails leave no guest out of the party.

By replacing liquor with non-alcoholic bases, you can whip up and serve tasty treats that won’t leave you (or your friends) with a headache.
