Do you ever feel like drinking cocktails out with friends, but don’t want to deal with the hangover the next day after? Mocktails have been gaining popularity as a food trend. They’re great because¬†you get to have your favorite drink while you’re the designated driver for your friend’s birthday or want to avoid the extra calories that can be packed in traditional cocktails. Restaurants are adding more mocktail recipes to their menu as a nonalcoholic option for those who don’t want the effects of alcohol, but who still want to join in the fun of a night out with friends.
