We salute you for making it this far. We have compiled a list with 10 delicious mocktails that will make you forget you drink alcohol. These mocktail recipes can be made tonight using Gopuff ingredients. They are ready in 30 minutes.

The best mocktails are able to restore the flavor lost when alcohol is removed. This margarita mocktail uses a tiny amount of pickle juice for a refreshing, sour taste. This cocktail is complex enough to be enjoyed in high school and classic cocktails.

  • Fresh lime juice
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Maple syrup or simple syrup
  • Pickle juice (optional, but highly recommended)
  • Tonic water
  • Salt rim garnish and lime wheel garnish (optional).

Mojito Mocktail

To avoid them falling apart, most virgin versions of popular cocktails require some imagination. Mojito mocktails don’t fall under the category of these drinks. You can make a fake-jito by omitting the rum. The result is a drink with good balance between sweet, sour and herbal flavors. It’s not as complex as a mojito but it will bring back summer memories without you having to turn up the heat above 68 degrees.

That leaves you plenty of time for your pancake-batter creation.

Earl Grey Cobbler Moocktail

This Earl Grey cobbler mocktail is a copy of an original sherry cobbler recipe, which was published in The Bartender’s Guide 1862. The original recipe only required three ingredients: orange slices, sugar and sherry. This recipe substitutes sherry for Earl Grey, which has floral and citrus flavors. Because tea can be used in mocktail drinks, it is a great base because it can add the bitterness that you love in cocktails and archenemies.

  • Earl Grey Tea
  • Simple syrup

Appletini Mocktail

This appletini mocktail, despite having no alcohol, somehow feels like a grown-up appletini. This is most likely due the absence of green apple syrup, which is a popular choice among college students. It’s also complex because it uses fresh lemon juice to balance the sweetness of the simple syrup and apple juice.
