Pass on the booze and gobble down these mocktails instead. 

A traditional Thanksgiving is best for filling the bellies of turkey-loving folks that enjoy a big meal, paired with a glass of wine or fall cocktail.

That being said, if you’re hosting a Thanksgiving with a vegetarian, there are plenty of main-dish alternatives you can prepare, like pumpkin lasagna or vegetarian mushroom shepherd’s pie. Now, what about the people who don’t drink alcohol?

Your guests who don’t drink alcohol deserve a more appealing drink option than store-bought sparkling grape juice or apple juice. If you prepare these four mocktails, you’ll be sure to please everyone.
