Wine and cocktails may be a wonderful way to celebrate, but we’re diving into the deep end of mocktails this Christmas season! Check out these fantastic mocktail recipes, sure to be family favourites for your non alcoholic house guests!

A Shimmering Christmas: Orange Earl Grey Tea And Tonic

This fantastic little Christmas mocktail recipe combines all the best parts of regular earl grey tea, but dials it up a punch (pun intended) with the sweet citrus zing of orange, as opposed to lemon! Cocktail who? This delightful beverage is all we need.

To make your earl grey syrup, combine three bags of Royal Earl Grey Tea (We get ours from The Tea Story) with one cup of sugar and half a cup of water. Bring to a boil and allow to infuse, then cool and store in the refrigerator until needed. When you’re ready to make your mocktails, combine one part earl grey syrup with one part soda water and one part orange juice, and serve poured over ice cubes. Garnish with an orange slice for added zing and sprightliness!

Sparkling Pomegranate Chai Mocktail – A Christmas Mocktail To Remember

Get a little festive this Christmas season with this sparkling pomegranate chai mocktail recipe! The vibrant and velvety crimson is sure to get your guests in the mood – and it’s also absolutely delicious to boot! We make ours with this gorgeous Vanilla Chai with Hibiscus mix from Tumboh, and amp it up with sparkling apple juice and just the barest hint of pomegranate juice.

To make this mocktail recipe: Infuse three bags of vanilla chai in one cup hot water. Leave to cool before combining with one cup sparkling apple juice and half a cup of pomegranate juice. Add a tablespoon of lime juice (if you like your mocktails sour!), then serve over ice, garnished with ruby red pomegranate seeds!

A Flamingo Fabulous Drink: Pink Roselle Christmas Mocktail

Christmas season is a time for warm hues and bright, bold flavours, and that’s just what this delightfully red mocktail recipe promises! What’s even better is that it’s really easy to make – and absolutely a fan favourite, even with the little ones.

To make this mocktail recipe, simply steep about 5 to 6 roselle flowers in two cups of boiling water until all the gorgeous ruby red has been extracted. Allow the tea to cool; in the meantime, make a simple honey syrup by combining two parts multifloral golden honey with two parts hot water. Allow that to cool also before making your mocktail!

Combine half a cup of your roselle tea with the juice of half a lime. Sweeten as desired with honey syrup, then serve over ice, topped off with as much sparkling water as you would like.


Lychee Mar-Tea-Ni Martini

If you’re a lychee martini fan, raise a hand! This delightfully refreshing Christmas mocktail recipe combines the best of both worlds: tea and fruit, and packs a delicious floral, fruity punch.

To make your tea, simply infuse three bags of rose lychee martini tea from The Tea Story in a cup of hot water. Allow to cool; in the meantime, pry open a tin of lychees. Make your mocktail: combine two parts tea with one part lychee syrup from the tin. Shake together with ice, then pour into a martini glass and garnish with lychees and crushed rose petals for a gorgeous burst of colour!

Pro tip: Freeze edible flowers in ice and use them to give your drink more star power!

A Christmas Mocktail For The Coffee Lovers: Caffeinated Orange Mocktail

If you’ve ever had a coffee martini, you know all too well that it’s absolutely delicious! While not exactly a take on it, this wonderful recipe combines the sweet sprightly flavour of orange juice with the bold richness of drip coffee (we love Millilitre Coffee’s Peru Drip Bag Coffee for this).

To make this mocktail recipe: Prepare your drip coffee (100ml) and dilute half a tablespoon of honey in it. Allow it to cool. In the meantime, get a highball glass and fill it with ice cubes. Pour over the juice of half an orange, then pour over your cooled coffee. Serve garnished with an orange wedge.
