Always put as much care into non-alcoholic drinks to serve your guests as you do alcoholic. It’s no fun for a pregnant guest, a non-drinker or a child to step up to the bar only to be served a can of soda or glass of plain water. Who doesn’t love feeling well-taken care of and sipping on a decorative glass of balsamic elixir, a pretty flute of sparkling water or a hot cocoa with all of the trimmings?

Here are 5 easy ideas for making your non-alcoholic drinks shine:

1. infuse, infuse, infuse! Dress up the simplest of drinks {like sparkling water} with sugared fruit wheels, ribbon on the stems of glasses, or sweet rimmed sugar

2. choose festive glassware for these cocktails

3. create a make-your-own drink station where guests can play with fizzy water, fruits and syrups

4. make delightful chalkboard menus and drink flags for non-alcoholic drinks

5. make sure these mocktails are tray passed by wait staff and guests are greeted with a smile

What would you put on your non-alcoholic drink menu? Cheers and be sure to come back next week – we’ll be dissecting how to properly dress a table for your wedding and sharing our planning and etiquette tips!

    The best non-alcoholic cocktail I know is 50-50 mix of ginger beer and apple juice with a lot of mint. Delicious. (add Pimms for alcoholic).
