Alcohol-free drinks can be tasty and fun this party season. We have some holiday mocktail recipes for you to consider or create your own with our tips.

Key Takeaways

  • The holidays are known for celebrating in excess and this can be particularly hard for anyone in recovery.
  • It is possible to enjoy the holidays without a setback.
  • Keep your party sober and fun with alcohol-free drink alternatives to holiday cocktails.
  • Try our mocktail recipes and use our tips to create even more non-alcoholic drinks.

Celebrating in excess seems to be the standard during the holidays – especially overindulging in festive food and drink. This can be particularly hard for anyone in recovery due to addiction triggers that can present themselves. An addiction trigger is anything that instigates a reaction from someone in recovery that would have involved the abuse of alcohol or drugs in the past.

BrightView knows recovery and the holidays don’t always mix. It’s normal to be nervous about maintaining sobriety during this time of the year. One way to prevent a setback is to create fun alternatives to holiday cocktails – mocktails.

Mocktails are a fun way to get creative and experiment while staying sober. Check out our recipes below for a few nonalcoholic beverage options that will be a hit at any party.
