3 Enticing Mocktails To Try in the New Year

Satisfying drinks to sip any night of the week.

Pom Fizzie

Still feeling festive despite the post-holiday season? This pomegranate-packed drink will satisfy your cravings. Add a handful of ice cubes to a glass, pour in a splash of pomegranate juice, add sparkling water, and finish with a squeeze of lime. Garnish with fresh rosemary and pomegranate arils for some added pep.

Winter Hug

If you need a warming sip on a snowy night, this hot toddy mocktail will offer a steamy dose of winter comfort. Brew your favorite tea (we like green, black, or chamomile) and pour it into a mug. Squeeze in lemon juice, add a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg, and about a tablespoon of honey. Top with a lemon or orange rind before enjoying.

Lemon Spritzer

This refreshing spritzer is equally as appealing as a lemon drop martini—sans vodka. Muddle fresh mint in the bottom of a glass, add ice, and pour in your favorite club soda, like Betty Buzz Meyer Lemon Club Soda which has a smooth lemon flavor. If desired, squeeze in fresh lemon juice. Twist a few sprigs of thyme and add them to your glass for the finishing touch.
