9 mocktails so good you’ll forget about booze

Centr Team

Don’t be fooled by the name: mocktails are no longer something to be mocked.

More and more people are looking for alternatives to alcohol and a well-crafted mocktail is a surefire way to scratch the itch, whether you’re cutting back, cutting out or simply need a night off the booze.

To keep you from feeling like a kid at the adults’ table, we’ve put together a few of our favorite mocktail recipes – virgin takes on classic cocktails and a few of our own creations – calling for fresh, whole ingredients while avoiding added sugars. They’re a little fancy, sure, but they’re also healthy, so feel free to drink irresponsibly.

Strawberry Virgin Daiquiri from the Centr meal plan.

1. Hydrating Strawberry Virgin Daiquiri

A spicy margarita is the backbone of any night out and this virgin mocktail is just as drinkable (and spicy) as the original. Don’t forget your dancing shoes.

2 glasses of Paloma Mocktail sit on a wooden table, with citrus quarters in a side dish and a small bowl of maple syrup on the side.

4. Dan’s Paloma Mocktail

Don’t tell margarita, but the paloma – in all its sweet, sour and grapefruit-y goodness – is Mexico’s national aperitif. And if you can’t choose between the two? Um, por que no los dos?

Two tall glasses of pale lime coloured ginger mule mocktail sit on a table with a side dish of ginger slices and a small bowl of maple syrup.

5. Fresh Ginger Mule Mocktail

Switch ginger beer with fresh ginger and soda water for a mule mocktail that’s low in sugar and calories and, best of all, won’t kick you sideways come morning.

A tall glass of Morning Recovery sits on a wooden board, with a leafy stick of celery in the glass, and some corn chips on the side.

6. Morning Recovery

Feeling a little worse for wear? The tomato juice in this healthy mocktail contains lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells and is good for both the heart and skin. And the bonus corn chips should have you back on track in no time.

Three glasses of ruby coloured Blueberry Super Spritzer sit on a wooden table, with blueberries scattered around.

7. Blueberry Super Spritzer

Wondering what makes this spritzer so super? Blueberries are packed full of antioxidants and have been shown to help with exercise recovery and brain and heart health. In other words: you can drink as many as you like.

Four champagne glasses with pale pink Raspberry Gin-less Fizz stand on a wooden table.
