These breezy summer drinks contain less sugar and no alcohol—bottoms up!

Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission.

Whether you never consume alcohol, or just want a break from booze, it’s almost universally accepted that NA drink options are a) loaded with sugar, b) all but nonexistent, or c) just not that tasty. But with so many fresh, juicy ingredients summer available now, this is the perfect time of year to break those stereotypes.

There are a few secrets for sipping success when it comes to nonalcoholic cocktails that won’t break your calorie bank. First, use fresh and ripe fruit to your advantage. You may find that it tastes so delicious, you don’t even need additional sugar to sweeten the deal.

Second, rely on no-calorie seltzer for the fizz factor. This fills the glass and allows you to use higher-sugar sodas and mixers sparingly. A splash adds flavor without overwhelming the other ingredients. Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment with nontraditional flavors. Ingredients you may not traditionally think of in cocktails (think: herbs or spices) can add a big flavor punch without any additional fats, sugars, or cals.

Here are 4 breezy, light summer mocktails that taste so good, you might even convince your friends to trade in their wine coolers.

If You Have a Sweet Tooth…

Honey-Rosemary Spritzer

Start by making a flavored simple syrup: Combine ¼ cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/2 cup water, and 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary. Bring to a boil, stir to dissolve sugar and honey, and remove from heat. Strain out rosemary, and let syrup cool.

Place a few ice in a highball glass, and add desired amount of syrup (you will have some left over; store in an airtight jar in the fridge). Top with seltzer water, and garnish with a fresh sprig of rosemary.

Raspberry-Lime Rickey Slushie

Red raspberries' juicy, perfumey, sweet flavor peaks from late June through August and is just right for this summer cooler. View the recipe here, and omit the gin for a refreshing mocktail.

If You Like Bitter and Herbaceous Flavors…

Celery and Grapefruit Tonic

Add a few ice cubes to a rocks glass and pour in 4 ounces grapefruit juice. Add 2-3 ounces seltzer water, and top with a splash of Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray (celery soda). Garnish with a half-moon slice of fresh grapefruit and a celery stalk with the leaves. Although the celery soda contains a small amount of sugar, you may further sweeten this by stirring in a small amount of simple syrup.

If You Like Things Spicy…

Spicy Mango Sipper

In a shallow, wide bowl combine sea salt, lime zest, and a small amount of cayenne pepper. Run a lime wedge around the lip of a rocks glass, then invert the glass and dip it in the spicy salt.

Add a few pieces of ripe chopped mango to the glass, and use a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon to mash up the fruit. Top with mango LaCroix sparkling water and enjoy. You may sweeten this further by adding 1/2-1 teaspoon sugar to the mango before muddling.

If You’re a Fan of Fruity and Creamy Drinks…

Strawberry-Coconut Cooler

Add 1/3 cup ripe, hulled strawberries to a blender. Add 1/2 cup light coconut milk, 1 tablespoon agave syrup, and 4-5 ice cubes. Blend on high until frothy and creamy. Pour into a glass and sip through a straw.

Refreshing mocktails from TikTok that are perfect for summer

There’s nothing like an outdoor happy hour, but you don’t need alcohol to enjoy a warm weather gathering. Mocktails can be just as flavorful, creative, and refreshing as their alcoholic counterparts, and they’re guaranteed to not give you a hangover! If you’re ready to mock and roll, here are 5 mocktails from TikTok that’ll get you stoked for some summer hangs.

Non-alcoholic strawberry piña colada

This mocktail is a strawberry-led take on the classic piña colada. It features frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple, and cream of coconut. Plus, it’s served in a hollowed out pineapple. Who can possibly say no to a drink that’s served in a pineapple?

Green grape mocktail

Just because you’re not drinking wine, doesn’t mean you have to abandon your good friend the grape. This drink uses whole green grapes to achieve its unique, neon-like color. Garnish with some more grapes and fresh mint leaves, for a refreshing mocktail that won’t give you a wine headache.

“Electric mango” mocktail

This colorful concoction is filled with tropical flavors that are sure to shock your taste buds. Fill a glass with ice and pour in some mango juice. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a splash of a blue sports drink, and be mesmerized as the blue liquid spreads throughout the glass.

Non-alcoholic blackberry mojito

Featuring classic mojito ingredients like limes, mint leaves and sugar, this mocktail recipe takes things to the next level by throwing in a healthy serving of fresh blackberries. After muddling everything together, add ice and some lemon lime soda and stir it all together. Pour it in a glass, snap a photo, make a toast, and drink away.

Summer Mocktails

We can always offer lemonade or my Templeton iced tea but sometimes I want something just a little bit different. Thankfully, there are lots of different summer mocktails we can make to serve at our parties.

This fruit-filled virgin sangria recipe is one of my very favorites because it’s loaded with fresh, organic fruit. It tastes so refreshing on a hot summer day.

This is the perfect summer mocktail recipe because I can vary the fresh fruit I use based on what is in season. So, if you don’t have cherries but do have raspberries, you can use those instead.

If you don’t have orange juice but do have pineapple juice, feel free to substitute.

What fruits should I add to sangria?

Because you will be floating the fruit (orange, lime, and lemon) in your mocktail, please choose organic. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this a little bit.

Sparkling sangria mocktail recipe

You can even try this virgin sangria with ginger ale if you want fizz in your drink. I’m going to try this non-alcoholic sangria with cranberry juice for our Thanksgiving day celebration.

You can really float all sorts of fruit in your sangria. It entirely depends on your taste preferences. Mix and match or try them alone in your favorite recipe. Here are a few you might want to try:

How to serve this virgin sangria recipe

To make it easier to serve your mocktails this summer, I really recommend a serving tray and a large glass pitcher. You can mix up a big batch of your favorite mocktail ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator.

So, when your guests arrive, you can put the pitcher and glasses on your tray and head outside. No one wants to spend a lot of time in the summer in the kitchen.

It’s a lot more fun to be out visiting with your guests while sipping your favorite mocktail recipe.

Like my virgin sangria recipe, try these:

These summer mocktail recipes will be perfect for your Girls Night In party this summer. So, gather a bunch of friends, send the men off to watch the kids, find a chick flick on the television and you will be all set to relax.

If TV isn’t your thing, how about a mani / pedi party? Have everyone bring a few of their favorite nail polishes and enjoy a few hours being pampered.

What is non alcoholic sangria made of?

Summer Mocktails are very easy to make. It’s just a matter of removing the alcohol from your favorite drink and replacing it with a juice of some sort. So, this Virgin Sangria mocktail is a yummy combination of pomegranate juice and black tea.

I am a huge fan of both pomegranate juice and iced tea because they taste great together. Have you ever tried making root beer?

How to make my Virgin Sangria Recipe

So, check out the simple directions to make my virgin sangria recipe. It’s one of my favorite non-alcoholic summer drinks.

Now, if you’re looking for a Sangria Senorial recipe, this non-alcoholic sangria isn’t quite what you want. You’ll want to try more grape juice with a bit of lemon and a bunch of sugar.

Finally, If you find one that works for you, let me know. I would love to try it. From what my husband says, this Mexican soda recipe is out of this world.

But, sadly I cannot find it locally. You’re in luck, though, you can buy it on Amazon which may be a lot easier than trying to replicate the recipe.

1 ounce lime juice
1/2 cup ginger beer
1 tablespoon simple syrup
2 ounces sparkling water, tonic, or club soda
Ice cubes, 3 to 5 depending on your preference

Add all ingredients in a glass and stir well.
Garnish with a slice of lime and a small slice of ginger.

I like this cran-apple cider mocktail for a winter wedding, especially if you add in some mulling spices and heat it up.

7 Mocktails That’ll Transport You Straight to the Beach

Summer is one of my favorite seasons because there’s always an occasion appropriate for a refreshing drink. We talk a lot about tasty beachy drinks over here at BlueSun and that’s because we want the refreshing lifestyle of “all included drinks, alcoholic and non” to come right to your home.

Maybe you’re a mother-to-be or you just started Whole30. At the sound of a cookout, the temptations are high and your taste buds may start tingling for that refreshing beverage. So here’s some great alternative beachy drink recipes, so you don’t have to miss out on any fun at the next party or summer celebration.

7 Mocktails That’ll Transport You Straight to the Beach

Mexican Punch

Now this is a straight transportation to sandy perfection in Mexico.

  • Juice of 2 oranges
  • 1 small container frozen limeade
  • Two 2-liter bottles lemon-lime soda, such as 7-Up

Why Mocktails and Virgin Mojitos?

If you like the flavors that are in these alcohol styled beverage drinks, then these summer mocktails are a healthy tasty alternative that you're going to love.

These will hydrate you in the warmer weather and you can drink loads of it and not worry about your waistline because they have very few calories, if any, depending on what you choose for ingredients.

I usually make a whole pitcher full and add ice as I need it, and what's better than making a drink that takes only a few minutes to make and delicious like these, I would say nothing.

If you have guests that want the alcohol, just pass them a bottle and add a shot to their drink, no problem, but for the non-alcohol drinkers, this will be perfect for all ages even the kids.

Perfect for parties especially in a punch bowl, the floating fruits are the perfect beverage for entertaining guests.

The only thing you really need to be well-stocked on, ice lots of ice, so make it ahead of time and keep a good supply in the freezer.
