As we get deeper into December and closer and closer to holiday time, the drinks are a-flowing and it feels like they may never stop. In fact, hostesses everywhere seem to be pouring bevvy magic into glasses and you can hear the clinking near and far. Well, now you can make sure that there’s something for every single guest at your party. There really is nothing more fun that sharing delicious food and drinks with friends and family – those who are thirsty for drinks of the alcoholic variety as well as those who just want want to say Cheers with everyone else.

The Brazen Mistletoe Mojito Mocktail

One popular drink choice at this time of year is the delicious Mojito Cocktail – but it’s hard to find a version that doesn’t get you drunk. So this year, if you feel like abstaining but still want to taste something divine, you have to try this. It’s my Mistletoe Mojito Mocktail recipe – a tasty mixture of mint and citrus flavours that will make you fill up your glass again and again. In my experience, this is the best possible alternative to regular mojito there is – and it’s as easy to make as it is to drink!

And here’s a bonus for all those who do want to get tipsy from their Mojito: this recipe won’t stop you. Just keep reading right to the end for my very special cocktail twist.
