Mocktails are often created using a combination of juices, soda, flavored syrups, herbs, and fruits to provide a refreshing and flavorful drink. They are popular choices for individuals who don’t consume alcohol, such as designated drivers, those who prefer non-alcoholic options, or in situations where alcohol is not permitted. Mocktails can be served at parties, social gatherings, or as a refreshing beverage choice any time.
