My kids and I developed this fantastic (and super easy) Kid’s Mock Cocktail Recipe. It’s fresh, yummy, and a fun kid drink to serve at any party or get together. You’re going to LOVE this…
Aside: We served our Kid’s Mock Cocktail Recipe in margarita glasses. The kids were thrilled to sip from fancy glasses. If you want to keep this drink soda pop-free you could substitute the pop with cranberry juice. It will change the colour but it will still taste great.
Kid’s Mock Cocktail Recipe
- 1/4 cup sprite or ginger ale
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- maraschino cherry
- Ice cubes
- Pour equal parts sprite and orange juice in a shaker. Add in ice. Shake well.
- In glass, put in one ice cube. Pour sprite/orange juice mixture into glass. Add in one maraschino cherry.
This drink would go great not only as a beverage but as one of your birthday party activities (think: birthday kid gets to do the shaking and serving; making him/her the hostess with the mostess – or host with the most). We served this drink at a party and it was a huge hit.
Even as a grown up – I love this mocktail recipe. It’s light and fresh.
