Go ahead and pour yourself another glass!
Whether you’re looking to start your Dry January a little early or want to serve a signature drink at your New Year’s Eve bash that even the littlest of guests can enjoy, mocktails and fizzy water-based drinks make a delicious addition to any celebration. Fun and colorful, they’re the perfect way to toast to 2020 and ring in the New Year with absolutely no guilt whatsoever. Here are some of our thirst-quenching favorites.
La Croix Egg Creams (pictured above)
Your party is sure to be the one everyone’s talking about at the end of the night thanks to these velvety egg creams. (For those new to egg creams, they actually don't contain any egg at all!) You’ll use a small handful of natural ingredients — like raspberries, strawberries and blueberries — to form each base and various fruity flavors of La Croix carbonated water to give them a foamy finish. They truly are tres magnifique!
We like to think of this decadent chocolate syrup-based mocktail from Bobby Flay as an upscale version of chocolate milk. With its chocolate-sprinkle-covered rim and ultra-smooth texture, it truly is dessert in a glass.
This flavorful drink has the same fizzy sensation of champagne minus the alcoholic buzz. Make a big batch and serve it with a bowl of fresh cranberries and sliced limes to create your very own Insta-worthy drink station.
Chocolate milk, seltzer water and ice cubes are all you need to make this super fun and rich soda drink. If you're looking for the perfect snack to pair them with, these whimsical and surprise-filled New Year's Resolution Cookies make a great choice.
Bellinis are a must-have at any gathering — especially when that gathering goes well into the next morning like your New Year's Eve party will. Pomegranate and cranberry juice combine with sparkling water to give it a ultra-lux finish that's as refreshing as the Prosecco-filled version.
If you grew up loving Shirley temples, this cherry-based version from Geoffrey Zakarian is sure to please. Geoffrey uses pitted cherries instead of grenadine syrup to give it a better-for-you touch. Serve with glittery straws and in sparkly champagne flutes to add a little extra shine to the beginning of 2020.
