- Tropical Temptation Mojito:

- Berry Bliss Bellini:
Elevate your berry mocktail with a touch of sparkling wine. Blend the fresh berries, honey, and sparkling water as instructed in the original recipe. Instead of topping it off with more sparkling water, pour in some chilled prosecco or champagne. The result? A fruity and bubbly berry Bellini cocktail!
- Mojito Mocktail Margarita:
Combine the refreshing qualities of a mojito mocktail with the zesty kick of a margarita. Muddle the mint leaves and add lime juice as directed. Instead of using club soda, replace it with 1-2 ounces of tequila. Add some crushed ice, lime slices, and a salt rim if desired, for a mouthwatering mojito margarita!
- Minty Watermelon Spritzer:
Give your minty watermelon mocktail a lively twist by incorporating vodka. Blend watermelon cubes, lemon juice, and agave syrup together. Instead of adding sparkling water, stir in 1-2 ounces of vodka. Pour the mixture over ice, top it off with sparkling water, and garnish with fresh mint sprigs. Enjoy your vibrant watermelon spritzer cocktail!
- Peachy Sunrise Sangria:
Turn your peachy sunrise mocktail into a delicious sangria. Mix the peach nectar, orange juice, cranberry juice, and grenadine syrup according to the original recipe. Instead of serving it as is, pour 1-2 cups of chilled white or rosé wine into the mixture. Add some chopped fruits like orange slices and peaches for added flavor and visual appeal. Cheers to a delightful peachy sunrise sangria!
