Kids Mocktails

Fresh Fruit Summer Mocktails

You know what I see a lot of at summertime parties? Carefully thought out cocktails for adults like spicy margaritas and coconut mojitos (I’ll have one of those, thanks!). And when it comes to the kids, there’s a cooler full of sugary sodas and “fruit” juices. I love to throw a curve ball with fresh mocktails for kids, or for whomever fancies a non-alcoholic beverage.

Have you ever noticed that when you sit your kids at the adults table, or do something to make them feel seen and mature like place a fancy drink in their hands, that they suddenly act more mature? We’re in this major transition in our household going from kid to teen. A 100% juice box feels juvenile, and sodas make me cringe. These mocktails are age appropriate, elevated, and most importantly, fun.

DIY Mocktails

Whipping up these Summer mocktails makes a really fun excuse get everyone in the kitchen and working together. The work pays off with delicious mocktails that everyone can sip and enjoy. They’re the perfect way to get creative with the abundance of fresh summer fruit.

I make my own simple syrup for mocktails using xylitol, a natural sweetener (like Stevia) made from alcohol found in most plant material, including many fruits and vegetables. It’s a smart option for kids because it’s also a cavity inhibitor! You can find xylitol in most grocery stores near other sweeteners. For simple syrup, I mix 1 part xylitol to 1 part water.
