Making Mocktails – A guide to making alchohol-free exciting

As a company offering event catering in central London, we want to ensure we stay ahead of the game and meet the demands of our clients and guests.

Many take part in ‘Dry January’ but trend reports show that 2018 could be the year we prolong detoxing and stick to a non-alcohol lifestyle.

An increasing number of people are opting to abstain from alcohol, either permanently or temporarily. Could this be the end of the classic Champagne reception?

We put together a variety of alcohol-free options that will please all tastes.

Pear Cider

In addition to being sweet and delicious, pears are a central ingredient in one of the best warmed ‘comfort’ mocktails: pear cider. It’s a tart and spicy combination of sweet pears, cinnamon, cloves and allspice. Great for the colder months as nothing says ‘winter magic’ like a glass of this hot, aromatic beverage.


This five-ingredient mocktail is a playful option for an event, especially if there are Harry Potter fans in attendance. Vanilla flavoured cream soda is combined with butter and non-alcoholic rum extracts, topped with a frothy combination of whipping cream and marshmallow creme. Simultaneously rich and sweet, butterbeer is an excellent dessert beverage.

Cucumber and Ginger Mocktail

This is a great choice for warmer months. If you are looking for healthy event catering in central London, be sure to add this refreshing, alcohol-free version of gin and tonic to your menu. The light and refreshing cucumber flavour responds well to the aromatic, spicy ginger.

When added to a cool glass of sparkling water, the result is sure to appeal to non-drinkers and cocktail enthusiasts alike.

Grapefruit, Ginger, and Turmeric Mocktail

This healthy and invigorating mocktail will keep you hydrated and energised. The grapefruit, ginger, and turmeric mocktail is a festive beverage that included some anti-inflammatory and immune system-boosting superfoods. Serve with a sprig of mint, grapefruit slices and a dash of honey.


Mango Mojito Mocktail

This alcohol-free mango mojito is fresh and delicious. It consists of fresh mango, sparkling water, mint, crushed ice and lime wedges to garnish. This tropical concoction will have guests feeling like they’re at the beach even on the dreariest of days.
