7. Blueberry Mojito Mocktail
Hey, guess what? This year when your kids ask for champagne, you can tell them you made a mocktail they can actually drink! If they’re young enough that they don’t know what a mocktail is, they’ll feel special that they got to enjoy a “grown up” drink like mommy & daddy. If they are old enough to know it’s a non-alcoholic version, let them know it’s way cooler and tastier than plain champagne.
Stop by The Merrythought to get this recipe, which is easy enough that you can make it with your kids!

8. Pineapple Coconut Champagne Cocktail
Mmm..I sure do love me a tropical tasting drink. Anything that reminds me of beautiful, peaceful beaches is a winner in my book. This cocktail is like a piña colada with a touch of class. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad tasting pineapple coconut anything. Even if you’re not spending New Year’s Eve on the beach (if you are, I’m so jealous!), you can stir up this tropically terrific drink and pretend you’re on a beach somewhere.
There’s tons more to explore on Pineapple & Coconut, which is where you’ll find this recipe.
