This Frosty Hawaiian Mocktail recipe is very similar to a Blue Hawaiian cocktail, except it has no rum. 🙂 In our home, we have zero alcohol. None, not a drop. However, I do like to have an occasional drink if my husband and I go out for a special occasion.
I am all about some fruity drinks. Consequently, I love to make mocktails for kids when at home. I can share my fun and fruity concoctions with my kids and my husband (who doesn’t drink AT ALL).
You could really dress this pretty drink up with a fun umbrella or blueberries! For me, it reminds me of a pretty Frosty the Snowman, what about you?
The following ingredients are affiliate links on Amazon because they may be a bit hard to find in your normal store. I wanted you to be able to see exactly which things we are using.
I haven’t linked all the ingredients above, just the more difficult to find ones.
A great (and pretty) mocktail takes a stash of a few fun tools like the ones listed above. So, if you are planning to make cocktails and mocktails when entertaining, it would make sense to create your own little bar box! This way, you are prepared when the unexpected guest drops in.
More Delicious Mocktails:
Does each kid get an individual mocktail, or can this mocktail recipe be made as a punch to serve a crowd?
Deciding whether to make individual mocktails or a punch to serve a crowd depends largely on the size of the crowd and the preferences of those served. Individual mocktails often have more visual appeal and can be customized to each person’s taste or dietary needs, allowing for greater personalization.
They also often use fewer mixers and ingredients than an individual mocktail punch recipe. However, making an individual mocktail for each person can become tedious if you need to make it for a large crowd.
In this case, creating a party-size batch of your favorite mocktail recipes provides an easy way to include everyone in your celebration without mixing drinks for everyone individually. Ultimately, having pre-mixed drinks makes cleanup easier as well.
Are mocktail recipes best served fresh?
Mocktails, or non-alcoholic cocktails, are becoming increasingly popular as people look for interesting and flavorful drinks without the buzz of alcohol. The question is whether mocktail recipes are best served freshly made or if they can be prepared ahead of time and remain delicious.
While some simple syrups and juices that comprise mocktails can indeed be made in advance, this does not account for all mocktail recipes.
In particular, any recipe involving carbonated ingredients should be served fresh – as the bubbles will dissipate over time – to ensure maximum flavor and texture from a beverage standpoint.
Ultimately, it comes down to understanding a particular recipe’s components and determining the appropriate time frame for optimal flavor.
What is the best type of container in which to serve the drinks during a party setting?
When it comes to serving drinks at a party, one should consider the type of container they use. Possibilities can include cups and glasses, but these come with the risk of breakage.
Pitchers are an excellent option as they offer multiple servings in one vessel and allow guests to access their beverages relatively easily.
Dispensers such as mason jar dispensers or water coolers are an even better choice as they tend to provide more than enough for the group and require minimal effort from party-goers when it comes to getting their beverage of choice.
Additionally, Mason jar dispensers look aesthetic, making them a great decorative option.
Ultimately, when deciding on drink containers for a party setting, pitchers and, notably, dispensers are the best choices in terms of ease of use and practicality.
