Many of us associate a romantic date with a few drinks. With February being the month where love is in the air, you might be experiencing some FOMO as you make your date plans. This Naked Mind comes to the rescue with these alcohol-free drinks you’ll fall in love with!
Alcohol-Free Drinks You’ll Fall In Love With
Rosé all day can still be a thing when you’re alcohol-free! Try this unique and healthier twist on both Rosé and champagne with our sweet and bubbly Rosé Drypagne! You’ll fall in love with this drink and how great you’ll feel the next day when you can Rosé all day with no regrets!
Get started with –
ღ 1 quart pomegranate juice
ღ 2-3 quarts ginger-ale chilled
ღ 1 pint fresh raspberries
ღ Combine 1-quart pomegranate juice and 2 quarts of ginger ale in a pitcher, reserving some of the raspberries for garnish. Stir well to combine.
ღ Pour into your favorite glass.
ღ Garnish with additional raspberries
ღ Additional juice and ginger-ale can be added to taste. You can also try substituting cranberry juice for pomegranate juice.
Some Like It Hot
Some of us like it spicy – on our dates and in our drinks! Some Like It Hot is our version of Mexican Hot Chocolate! It packs a punch but not by using alcohol. This drink is hot in all the right ways and can certainly spice up your night. To make this alcohol-free drink you’ll fall in love with you will need-
ღ 5 1/2 cups milk of your choice
ღ 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped or 3 ounces unsweetened cocoa powder
ღ 4 ounces baking dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
ღ 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
ღ 2 cinnamon sticks
ღ 1/2 tsp nutmeg
ღ 1 tsp chili powder
ღ 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
ღ 1 tsp vanilla extract
ღ 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
ღ 1/3 cup chocolate liquor (non-alcoholic)
ღ toasted marshmallows (if desired)
ღ Combine all ingredients except for the chocolate liquor and marshmallows in a slow cooker. If using cocoa powder, whisk in as well as possible.
ღ Cook on the highest setting for 1 hour, stirring often. If using chocolate chips rather than chopped chocolate you will want to stir more often to prevent burning. After 1 hour, remove cinnamon sticks, stir again and switch to low setting. Cook for another 1 or 2 hours, or until chocolate has melted completely.
ღ Stir in the chocolate liquor (non-alcoholic), turning the slow cooker down to “warm”.
ღ Serve with toasted marshmallows on top if desired.
We often hear that all the alcohol-free options available have too much sugar in them or not enough flavor. Our Cranberry Refresher is an alcohol-free drink you’ll fall in love with that is low on sugar and bold on flavor thanks to the combination of the tart cranberries and the bite from the fresh mint. Whip some up by using –
ღ 12 ounces (3/4 pound) fresh cranberries
ღ 1/4 cup fresh mint (you can use the stems and the leaves)
ღ 3 cups water
ღ fresh mint and cranberries for garnish
ღ Place the cranberries, mint, and 3 cups water in a blender or place in a pitcher and use an immersion blender. Blend on high for 3-5 minutes. You want the mixture to be smooth in texture and deep red in color. Next you’ll need to pour through a strainer into a large pitcher.
ღ Serve in a tall glass over ice.
Verde Maria Mocktail
This is an alcohol-free drink you can fall in love with because it takes bold, bright flavors and combines them with healthy ingredients! There’s so much to love and enjoy in this drink that you’ll feel good about going back for more! Make sure you have –
ღ 1 cucumber, peeled and de-seeded
ღ 6 sprigs of coriander
ღ 1/4 cup Pickle Juice
ღ 1 green pepper
ღ Juice of 1⁄2 a lime
ღ 1 celery stalk
ღ Pinch each of ground cumin, celery salt, ground coriander and coarsely ground black
ღ 1/2 cup water
ღ 10 dashes of Tabasco Mild Green Pepper Sauce
ღ 2.5 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
ღ Combine everything but the apple cider vinegar in a blender and puree. Pass through muslin into a bowl to strain or use a fine-mesh strainer.

ღ Garnish with celery, pickles, lime, rosemary, or garnishes of your choice.
