Holiday Drinks Without Alcohol That Everyone Can Enjoy

Non-drinkers deserve festive eggnog, mulled everything, and candy cane garnish, too.

There are any number of reasons you or your guests might not be drinking this Christmas: pregnancy, health, religion, addiction recovery, or maybe they just don’t drink — just to name a few.

Or maybe you want to make drinks the whole family can enjoy!

Whether you’re hosting a holiday get-together or you’re the sober one, it’s always nice to have a few non-alcoholic holiday drink options on hand during the season. Unfortunately, a lot of these drinks are also super boring (how much soda, juice, or sparking water can one person drink, anyway?)

We love easy recipes. Check out this slideshow for more. Story continues below.
