Best Ever Mocktails for Spring & Summer

by Alli

It’s getting hot in here! I’m sorry if you’re still digging out from under the snow while I’m enjoying 70 & 80º weather. Because I’m such a summer girl, you’ll never hear me complaining about the heat, even when it nears 100º! You’ll find me sipping one of my Best Ever Mocktails! 

I just sit back and enjoy one of my best ever mocktails. You can see my complete list of refreshing alcohol-free drinks by visiting my Mocktails page.

Best Ever Mocktails

Hot weather requires cold drinks so I thought I’d share my best ever mocktails for spring & summer! Whether you’re throwing a party or just partying all by yourself, my drinks fit the bill AND you won’t wake up the next morning with a hangover (or find out you danced on the table all night long).  🙂

You can even enjoy these drinks before happy hour! It doesn’t have to be 5:00 somewhere!

Best Ever Mocktails for Spring and Summer

We’ll start with the prettiest and go from there. My No Tequila-Just the Sunrise is beautiful enough to stand her ground at any party, soiree, or just because you’re thirsty. Here are 2 different ways I serve these pretty things. (I just love the photo below! I snapped it outside after a spring rain & the table was soaking wet!)

My Frozen Margarita Mocktails pair perfectly with Mexican food or are delicious all by themselves. These are always requested when my entire family gets together for our annual beach vacation.

Helpful Hint: I always take my Ninja blender because it crushes ice much better than the ones at the resort.


How about a Banana Daiquiri Mocktail? The coconut milk mixed with the banana, lime juice, and ice creates a unique flavor and is smooth and refreshing. You must try it!


Last, but certainly not least, my Skinny Pink Champagne Mocktail is great for toasting or just sipping by the pool.

Easy Faux Pink Champagne

All of my mocktails are easy to make and fun to drink.  Summer just wouldn’t be the same without a mocktail or three.

Check out this Frozen Cherry Margarita Mocktail! It’s good any time of the year.

What’s your favorite spring/summer drink?

I’m not a big alcohol fan, so I love a good mocktail. These look delicious!

Alli April 8, 2015 - 8:12 am

I love mocktails, too, and I’m constantly on the lookout for new recipes to add to my collection.

Skye April 8, 2015 - 7:01 am

Those look so pretty! And when kiddo asks “Mom, what’s that?” I can actually share.

Alli April 8, 2015 - 8:11 am

Yes, you can share these with the kids! 🙂

Robin Rue (@massholemommy) April 8, 2015 - 7:05 am

I will take one of each of these 🙂 They all look gorgeous and I think mocktails are much fancier because people don’t get sloppy when they drink them.

Alli April 8, 2015 - 8:10 am

I know and they’re perfect for women who are pregnant and want to have a fancy drink.

R U S S April 8, 2015 - 7:09 am

We’re the same. I don’t complain with our summer weather. I’d pick it any day over rainy days and typhoon season. The nice thing about summer weather is you can make and have all the mocktails that you want. I am totally eying these two: the frozen margarita & banana daiquiri mocktails!

Alli April 8, 2015 - 8:09 am

Most people look at me with a weird expression on their face when I talk about how much I love summer. Glad to find someone who gets it.

Madaline April 8, 2015 - 7:13 am

Why don’t I remember the banana one?! Omg, this will be a life changer. I absolutely adore banana’s and if it’s something I can share with the little (who thinks she should be able to drink wine and coffee, wear lipstick etc) the better!

Alli April 8, 2015 - 8:08 am

The banana one is SO good! And the rim of coconut makes it taste really tropical. I close my eyes and pretend I’m on an island . . .

Shirley Wood April 8, 2015 - 7:42 am

Your Mocktails are almost too pretty to drink.
The heat cranks up early here in the south, doesn’t it. We’ll reach upper 80’s today! You and I are both thinking about nice cold summer beverages!

Alli April 8, 2015 - 8:05 am

I noticed that when I saw your Faux Strawberry Shake! I’ll be over in a few minutes to check it out. Strawberries are one of my favorite berries. I’ve never met many berries that I didn’t like.

Paris (My Big Fat Happy Life) April 8, 2015 - 9:26 am

I love a nice frozen mocktail when it’s hot outside! I do not drink a lot of alcohol so a mocktail is perfect! Plus I love that S can also try these mocktails with me and then she doesn’t feel left out!

MsYBBG April 8, 2015 - 11:02 am

You and I were clearly separated at birth! Lol I read the first few lines and had to double check to see if I wrote them lol. I am definitely a summer gal and prefer 100 degree weather to anything below 65!

Thanks so much for these drunk ideas! I’m the only one in my group who doesn’t drink, but I love a social hour and shindig! These would be perfect for a little Saturday brunch or evening dinner party!

Aisha Kristine Chong April 8, 2015 - 11:17 am

I definitely would love to grab that drink – it spells spring and summer all over!

Jeanine April 8, 2015 - 11:35 am

Super jealous of your weather. But, I will ignore that for now and jump into how awesome this post is. I don’t drink, period. So this is exactly what I need. Hey, maybe if I make a few of these the warm weather will come, right???? Well, I can hope so!

Sharon - Her Organized Chaos April 8, 2015 - 11:58 am

I love that champagne one! I love champagne and bubbly. Great list!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle April 8, 2015 - 12:13 pm

Thanks so much for sharing these recipes! I’m a huge mocktail. Some of those taste better WITHOUT the alcohol.

Anna @ NorthernHomestead April 8, 2015 - 12:44 pm

We are not talking about heat just yet, thank you for your sympathy ;). This all look so yummy. Have to pin it to remember for summer.

Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies April 8, 2015 - 2:05 pm

These look like awesome drinks to serve to guests. Love how these are mocktails – sometimes it’s hard to find a good recipe for a mocktail.

Erlene April 8, 2015 - 3:54 pm

This is perfect for the upcoming hot weather. I love that I can make these for my kids too. Thanks for the roundup.

Krayl @ An Appealing Plan April 8, 2015 - 4:21 pm

These look perfectly PG Alli – I think I am going to have to sneak in a little rum though… LOL. And I am totally with you on the summer heat. I only complain when it drops below 45…

michele d April 8, 2015 - 6:31 pm

I can’t wait for summer. These drinks looks amazing! Would like to try them all!

Chubskulit Rose April 8, 2015 - 6:51 pm

Any of these mocktails just sounds and look so delicious! I will have to learn how to make this, thanks for sharing.

ricci April 8, 2015 - 7:37 pm

I love a good mocktail, sometimes I just want to drink a fruity frozen drink but not drink alcohol. These look yummy!!

kendall April 8, 2015 - 7:52 pm

Oh, these all look delicious! I love fun drinks like this!

Bonnie @ wemake7 April 8, 2015 - 8:21 pm

Those look so delicious and would be great on a hot Summer day. As soon as it ever warms up here I’ll have to try these.

Kelly Hutchinson April 8, 2015 - 9:21 pm

I think I would really enjoy the Skinny Pink Champagne Mocktail. It looks so refreshing.

John Lopez April 8, 2015 - 9:22 pm

All of these looks refreshing and my wife would love it, cause she really love to seeing and taste cocktails like this.

lisa @bitesforbabies April 8, 2015 - 9:44 pm

These pics looks so enticing!!! Adn the drinks just sound amazing…I could use one right now!

Liz Leiro April 8, 2015 - 11:14 pm

It was warming up here just a yesterday the weather dropped like 40 degrees and it rained. I love anything frozen and slushy. I can’t wait to get to Palm Springs for Memorial Day weekend and try these out (maybe with some rum in the afternoons)!

Cia | April 8, 2015 - 11:21 pm

I am obsessed with the summer weather as well. I must say that I looooooooooove these mocktails. Its great to see someone else enjoying a beverage sans the “cock.”

Ron Leyba April 9, 2015 - 12:04 am

I simply love each and every drink you have in here! I must check out your No Tequila-Just the Sunrise recipe. I think it’s what we need right now at this kind of hot weather.

Rebecca Swenor April 9, 2015 - 12:58 am

These are awesome mocktails for the spring and summer. I am going to have to make some of these indeed. The Banana Daiquiri Mocktail drink is the one I will be trying first. Thanks for sharing.

touristmeetstraveler April 9, 2015 - 3:14 am

banana daiquiri sounds so yummy, I’d love to try that!

Fi Ní Neachtáin April 9, 2015 - 3:28 am

These mocktails look so tasty and refreshing for those hot spring and summer days. I need to make me some of these 🙂

Rosey April 9, 2015 - 9:58 am

Those are some pretty delicious looking mocktails. They make me long for vacation. 🙂

Breanna April 9, 2015 - 10:15 am

YUM! We just got the roof put on our deck this past two weekends and with summer on the horizon this is just what I needed to read to have the great sips on my deck this summer! LOVE!

Angela April 9, 2015 - 11:41 am

So I will take one of each.. you can just teleport them to me! LOL omg so yummy! The no tequila just sunrise would prolly be my favorite.. then the coconut one! YUM! GREAT POST!

Chrystal @ YUM eating April 9, 2015 - 3:08 pm

That banana daquiri looks amazing. I wish it would warm up a little bit and stop raining so I could get in the mood for fruity cold drinks!

Roselynn April 9, 2015 - 4:30 pm

I’ll be honest, I had no idea what a mocktail was before this post haha. But I’m in love with all the drinks and like you said they are easy to make so I cannot wait to try it out for myself.

Krystal April 9, 2015 - 5:05 pm

Sometimes a nice daiquiri without the rum is just what I need. It’s very refreshing!

Jacqueline April 9, 2015 - 8:34 pm

Oh my goodness, seriously, these ocktails are so pretty! I’m also kicking back in some 80 degree weather- enjoy it 🙂

Myrabev April 10, 2015 - 3:21 am

I am a such a summer girl too so all these mocktails are so welcome in my home. I do however complain a bit about the heat when my heat rush comes ‘rushing’ in lol

ourfamilyworld April 10, 2015 - 5:39 am

What a amazing list of mocktails. I love the champagne style one. It is so creative

Lynndee April 10, 2015 - 7:23 am

It’s getting hot in here now too. It reached up to 82 degrees yesterday. Woot! I haven’t tried making mocktails yet. I don’t have any particular summer/spring drink too. I just love my ice cream at this time of year. 🙂

Donna L. Ward April 10, 2015 - 7:48 am

This is a fabulous collection of mocktail recipes! What fun and I am saving several of these to give a try – thank you 🙂

Cherri Megasko April 10, 2015 - 8:25 am

Oh my goodness! Those all look so beautiful and refreshing. I’ll be visiting my daughter soon in Phoenix and these will be perfect during my grandsons’ afternoon nap!

Ann BAcciaglia April 10, 2015 - 9:00 am

These all look so good! I really want to try the banana daquari recipe. I am going to bookmark this page and make some of the drinks for my first patio party this summer.

Alyssa C April 10, 2015 - 9:03 am

I love a drink that tastes and LOOKS good! I would definitely love to try the Banana Daquari

Gabriel April 10, 2015 - 12:02 pm

I’m a big fan of all the seasons, snow can be a lot of fun also! If I’m going with a mixed drink it’s usually a classic margarita, although for the most part I’m a craft beer guy. I will admit to loving the explosion of hard ciders though.

Life as a Convert April 12, 2015 - 8:41 pm

I love the idea of mocktails. I am not a drinker, so these are right up my alley.

Lorelai @ Life With Lorelai April 13, 2015 - 9:07 pm

LOVE these ideas for fun non-alcoholic drinks! Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty – we hope to see you again next week. 🙂

Life With Lorelai

Alli April 14, 2015 - 8:23 am

I’ve been missing you, girl! Hope the move is going as smoothly as a move can go!
