Mocktails are simply cocktails without the alcohol. These types of drinks have gotten more popular as people avoid alcohol for various reasons.

This refreshing version is made using a blend of fruit juices and ginger kombucha, with no added sugars. The crushed ice makes this mocktail even prettier, although you could leave out the ice if you wish.

  • people with alcohol sensitivities,
  • recovering and recovered alcoholics,
  • pregnant women,

  • and those who simply choose not to drink.

What’s the difference between a cocktail and a mocktail?

A cocktail contains alcohol and a mocktail is alcohol-free.

What is in a mocktail?

It depends! Most any cocktail recipe can be made in mocktail form simply by leaving out the alcohol. That said, sometimes mocktail recipes use sparkling water as a substitute for alcohol, especially champagne.

How can I make a mocktail?

I’ve included a recipe below, but you can always just combine fruit juice and sparkling water and serve it in a fancy glass. You’ve got yourself a mocktail now!

Units Scale
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice (from about 3 medium oranges)
  • 1 cup ginger kombucha*


  1. Divide the crushed ice between four cocktail glasses.
  2. In a large pitcher, combine the pomegranate juice, cranberry juice, orange juice, and ginger kombucha in a pitcher. Stir gently to combine.
  3. Pour the mixture into your cocktail glasses and serve immediately.


  1. Kombucha has a small amount of alcohol and sugar. If you want a 100% sugar-free and alcohol-free mocktail, use sparkling water instead of kombucha.
  2. Also, if you want to make this recipe ahead of time, leave out the kombucha until you’re ready to serve. This will ensure that it stays carbonated and bubbly.
