Mocktails are flavored drinks without alcohol. Basically, cocktails without the booze. Instead, a perfect combination of flavoring agents and liquor-like alternatives is important in mimicking the flavor of famous cocktails or creating new and delicious mocktails.
There are many popular mocktails like Shirley Temple, Arnold Palmer, and Roy Rogers because of the people associated with the drink and the refreshing flavor it brings. But let’s make a twist, let’s make the best CBD Mocktail Recipes for this summer.
