The weekend is upon us which means many of us are facing social gatherings and hosting. If you’re like me you’re always on the hunt for a mocktail which is a sure-fire crowd pleaser.

That’s no spelling error there friends, serving creative mocktails are a must for any would-be hostess with the mostess!

In these days when we’re all mindful of health and the effects of alcohol it’s a host’s duty to provide options which extend farther than a coffee, water or pop.

Your guests will remember you, there’s nothing worse that attending an event as a non-drinker and finding yourself leaning past kids to snatch the last plastic cup of juice because of a lack of choice.
