When attending a party, it’s often expected that there will be some assortment of alcoholic drinks to choose from. People have always enjoyed alcohol, and there are countless different cocktail recipes to choose from that are perfect for any casino-themed occasion.
Alcohol doesn’t always have to be a staple of a party, however, and it’s entirely possible to put together an ensemble of delicious drinks that are perfect for those visitors who aren’t looking to imbibe during the evening.
Citrus Peach Cooler
This cooler is a seasonal fruit drink that’s a fantastic choice for anyone wanting to abstain from booze for an evening. It’s simple, refreshing, and perfect for those beautiful summer evenings. The drink can be made from just about any citrus fruit, including clementines, grapefruit, pomelo, but blood oranges tends to have the best flavour and consistency.
Pomegranate Mojito Mocktail
A mojito is a popular drink that generally packs quite a punch, and is always a favourite among partygoers. This mocktail is similar in almost every way to its alcoholic counterpart in terms of colour, freshness, and taste. It requires a few leaves of mint on top, and it’s important to first crush the mint a little before adding it to the drink as it releases the strong oils contained within the leaf.
Mulled Apple Juice
More popular during the festive season, the process of mulling can be used for a wide range of different base drinks, and because it can take a while, it’s perfect for those that want a drink brewing while they’re busy with a show or online bingo NZ. Apple and pear tend to be the most common choices, although some citrus, cinnamon, honey, or agave can add a unique hint to the drink to really make it stand out at a party.
Tropical Fizz can be made from canned fruit, and is best when made from pineapple, strawberries, and pineapple. It’s the perfect drink for any occasion, providing a strong summer vibe even in the dead of winter. Any fruit can be added to make it unique, such as mango, passion fruit, or even lychees.
Lemonade is not traditionally alcoholic, but it’s still a solid drink for most parties, and can be tweaked and altered to suit any taste. The combinations of flavours are virtually endless, and it can easily be crafted at home on a cheap budget. If lemons are too sour to taste, it’s also possible to make limeade from fresh lime, using the pulp combined with soda water. To make the drink alcoholic, adding some rum or vodka can turn it into a spicy cocktail.
Smoothies are extremely easy to make, simply by adding the fruit of choice to a blender with some ice to create any flavour combination imaginable. Smoothies are an overall good choice for most parties, as they can be any flavour profile, from sweet to sour and even savoury. Fruit is a good place to start, but it’s also possible to add spices and peanut butter, and even vegetables can give it a unique taste.
