Why to Choose Alcohol Free Drinks?

© Chitrangada Sharan April, 2016

When it comes to beverages, most of us prefer to have tea, coffee or any soft drink. But how about having something that is more exciting, colourful, delicious, nutritious and a perfect party companion for cocktail lovers!

And you have plenty of choices in this category of non alcoholic drinks, to present to your loved ones or your guests.

With just a little imagination and innovation you can create wonderful non alcoholic drink recipes.

Alcohol free drinks are becoming very popular,

  • for those who are driving;
  • for those who are concerned about their health/ or have health issues;
  • for those who simply do not want to have alcohol;
  • for children and teenagers who want to enjoy sophisticated drinks (like adults);
  • for women who do not like alcoholic drinks;
  • for health conscious people who want to enjoy their food with nutrition in mind.

Alcohol free drinks can be made interesting and exciting and they can be enjoyed on any occasion. It may a garden party, birthday party, marriage party or regular dinner party.

To conclude:

When making alcohol free drinks, use the best quality ingredients for best results.

Fruits and vegetables should be hand picked and they should be fresh to enjoy the great effect of flavours.

Choose ripe and juicy fruits and not over ripe or under ripe fruits.

Home made juice is more flavoursome and certainly contains more nutrients than packaged juices.

One of the the most important thing to keep in mind in alcohol free drinks is their presentation.

Choose the right glasses and decorate the drinks for instant eye appeal.

Try and fix slices of lemon, orange, apple or pineapple on the top of the glasses before serving.

Rim of the glasses can be frosted with powdered sugar.

      Good post with nice recipes. Have taken many of them

      These look very tasty and I think the carrot/beetroot would be very nutritious too. Thank you for sharing these.

      I don't drink alcohol and so this ideal for me.

      In fact, where I use to work, I had a woman come up to me and tell me how she never attended work parties because she was embarrassed to say she didn't drink. When she knew that I was a non-drinker and went, it gave her the courage to attend.

      I think drinks like these which look 'grown up' are an excellent way to show kids you don't need to alcohol to have a good time.

      I have a Juice board over on Pinterest which I would like to pin this hub to with your permission.

      I do not take alcohol drinks and this inspires me to create all these interesting drinks which are healthy at the same time. When I host parties , I make it a point to make such drinks for women guests and children.

      My children love it and they add their own innovation to make something interesting every time.
