These candy cane Christmas mocktails have lots of festive flavor but without the booze. And so you are prepared…here are ALL my favorite products for making mocktails

What do people drink for Christmas?

In the past, non-alcoholic Christmas drinks have consisted of after thoughts like soda, water, store bought eggnog and plain juice. But those days are over!

We have the most beautiful and delicious Christmas mocktails to share so nobody should feel left out during the holidays. No matter what the reason you have for avoiding alcohol, whether pregnant, age or religion, you deserve a pretty drink that everyone else will be wondering where they can find it.

As a hostess, I personally love the idea of Christmas mocktails because I can make one batch of drinks for everyone. The kids can join in with the cheers and festivities and I love that!

So without further ado, one of our favorite non-alcoholic Christmas drinks…

Candy Cane Martini Mocktail

We made this a Christmas mocktail without the alcohol but you can certainly add peppermint schnapps if you want in place of the peppermint oil and cream soda.

I wanted something that was classy enough to serve the adults at our gingerbread decorating party and white christmas dinner party, but would work for the kids and teens as well. You know what? Everyone loves it! 

The crushed candy cane rim gives it that extra festive touch that makes it a bit sweeter too. The colors emanate holiday fun and the white drink itself reminds guests of freshly fallen snow. 

And just like with our Halloween mocktailsThanksgiving mocktails and Valentines mocktails, there is none of the alcohol, so it’s very family friendly! These drinks have WOW factor and certainly get your guests talking.

The same goes for our gingerbread martini mocktail, the gingerbread cookie rim is so nostalgic with its holiday cookie flavor. And the presentation is great too!

How to make it

Step 1: To prepare the martini glass rims, lightly coat the rim of your martini cup in simple syrup on a plate

Step 2: On another plate, place the crushed candy canes then rim the glasses by dipping the glasses that have been coated in simple syrup into the candy canes

Step 3: To make the drink, simply stir together 1 C half and half, 12 oz. cream soda, 4 tsp. simple syrup and 2-4 drops of peppermint oil in a small pitcher

Step 4: Pour mixed drink into the candy can rimmed martini glasses

Can you add other non-alcoholic spirits?

Definitely! This non-alcoholic prosecco drink can be added to it in place of the cream soda for a more spirited tasting drink. We have a great non-alcoholic gin and tonic that uses a fantastic botanical based spirit that would go great in this recipe. 

While I would recommend our non-alcoholic vodka, it does make a great addition to the drinks you are serving up.
