Tonight, the world celebrates the coming of the new year with clinking champagne glasses, eventual slurred speech, and possible DUIs. You, my teetotalling Mormon friends? For you, I present the great mocktail recipe exhchange. Eat, drink, be merry, and wake up tomorrow without a hangover, contemplating how you don’t need to set goals, because you constantly strive for anything virtuous, lovely, of good report, and praiseworthy (including virtuous–or rather virgin–beverages). I’ve pulled together links from favorite websites that have fantastic mocktail recipes. Please feel free to post your own favorite mocktail recipe in the comments below, and then return and report on your holiday festivities.

My favorite mocktail? Well, the recipe is at home on my fridge, but it’s basically cranberry and apple juice, with a dash of lime and grenadine, and a couple spoonfulls of yummy coconut cream. Blend with ice and enjoy!
Happy New Year!!!
