Maybe you overdid it a little on New Year’s Eve, or maybe you just want something delicious to drink that doesn’t contain alcohol. Either way, if you’re skipping the booze, you aren’t limited to water and soda. Previously, I found some tasty non-alcoholic drinks that don’t suck, and here are some more for 2014!
Spiced Thyme and Lime Iced Tea ~ Tea complemented with some herbs and spice (and of course a little lime) is a nice way to get layered, deep flavors without alcohol.
Virgin Grapefruit Mojito ~ Often times the virgin version of a cocktail disappoints or is just a sugary substitute. But thanks to the complexity of grapefruit and a recipe that uses agave or honey instead of sugar, this one is a sophisticated winner.
Horchata de Arroz Tostada ~ Toasted rice and cinnamon! It’s delicious to drink. Sure, it’s not anything like a damn cocktail, but cocktails could learn from this tasty beverage.
Apio-Rey ~ Celery, coriander, and grapes are an unusual combination that make for a satisfying drink made with sparkling water. I’ve never had Cel-Ray soda, but it’s supposed to be a take on that.
DIY Grape Soda ~ This isn’t Grape Crush! Homemade grape soda is like non-alcoholic wine with bubbles (and a little sweetness).
