I always loved ordering Shirley Temples as a kid when my parents were drinking cocktails. It made me feel so grown up!

I think this is a great drink recipe for the non-drinker such as me. I would love to try this at home.

I am an adult who gave up drinking a few years ago. Whenever I attend parties, I feel insecure drinking a soda when everybody else is sipping wine and nursing cocktails. I wonder if these mocktails might be right at social settings for a non-drinker like me. The recipes in this article definitely look exotic and tasty.
