3 Mocktail Recipes for Your BYOB Arts and Crafts Party

Frozen drinks with blueberry and lime

What’s better than creating a DIY piece of art for your home or office? Enjoying delicious snacks and beverages while doing it! At the henn house in Burr Ridge, we’re BYOB, but that doesn’t just pertain to alcohol. This includes any type of beverage you’d like to sip on while creating your custom wood sign. Mocktails make for a fun party drink and pair well with cheese and crackers, charcuterie, popcorn, or just about anything else. We’ve collected three delicious mocktail recipes for you from around the web to try during your next paint party.

Virgin Watermelon Margarita from Town and Country


1 medium seedless watermelon, cut into chunks

1/2 cup fresh lime juice

4 tsp agave

5 tbsp sparkling water


Blend watermelon chunks in a blender to create 4 cups of pure juice. Add agave and lime juice and mix. Pour into four glasses and top with a splash of sparkling water.

Blushing Arnold Palmer from Delish


2 cups lemonade

2 cups iced tea



Mix lemonade and iced tea together in equal parts, then add a splash of grenadine to each glass. Serves 4.

Mocktails with sparkling water and grapefruit

Grapefruit Kombucha Agua Fresca from Will Frolic for Food


2 cups grapefruit juice

2 cups unflavored kombucha

2 teaspoon maple syrup + more to taste

4 sprigs fresh rosemary

Optional: Unflavored sparkling water


Stir together grapefruit juice, kombucha, and maple syrup. Fill four glasses with ice and pour the mixture over top. If your kombucha isn’t naturally bubbly, you can add a splash of sparkling water. Rub each sprig of rosemary between your hands to help release the oils on the leaves, and put a sprig in each glass.
