15 fall mocktail recipes for your fall break from alcohol

Maybe this fall you’re thinking about taking a break from drinking. It’s always nice to have a restart for gut health and a rest for the liver. Or maybe you’re newly pregnant, or sober and curious, or don’t drink at all. Luckily, this fall, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor or fun by giving up alcohol. Here are 15 fall mocktails to enjoy this fall.

These recipes come primarily from a leading cocktail and mocktail recipe book called The art of mixology, and I’ve adapted some classic recipes to make them non-alcoholic while adding a few recipes of my own. Enjoy!
