New Year’s Eve Mocktails for Kids

Kids love to be included. Now they can have their own fancy-shmancy drinks too!


Some tips:

  • Use plastic champagne flutes. Kids (and let’s face it, adults, too!) can be clumsy with glasses they don’t use often. Plus, no one wants to clean up broken glass during a party.
  • Use light-colored juice. Candy that has food coloring (like the rock candy) will change the color of your juice. For the most eye-catching results, use apple, white grape or another light-colored juice. (Sparkling apple juice was used in the photos.)
