4 Mocktails to Make This Summer

May 3, 2023

Nothing screams Summer to me like a refreshing and fruity drink in the sunshine! I don’t know about you – but I have a hard time finding a fresh new drink that isn’t alcohol focused. The LIY mixologists recently purchased a BUNCH of ingredients and went to work, mixing up the freshest mocktails. [See us in action making them!] We had a lot of “WOW THAT’S TOO SWEET” and “What exactly did I do to this drink?!” moments – but we also had a lot of wins! Below are our 4 favorite mocktails of our mixology experiment.

But first — Are cocktails more your thing? Check out these posts!
