As someone who doesn’t drink alcohol, I’m always looking for refreshing mocktail recipes beyond the typical club soda or Shirley Temple. Thankfully on my last trip to SoundWaves, Chef Myk introduced me to two easy summer mocktail recipes they created based on their original handcrafted beverages from Opryland Resort.

Easy Summer Mocktail Recipes

Typically when I travel and want a fun virgin drink, most bartenders look at me crazy or just mix some fruit juices together.

Not the SoundWaves food and beverage team.

From the time SoundWaves opened, I’ve always enjoyed unique, alcohol-free beverages there. So when the time came to highlight some of our favorite coastal-inspired food during my SoundWaves Summer special TV show, of course we had to include mocktail recipes!

We showcased two summer mocktails during the episode: SoundWaves Punch and the Best Pal

SoundWaves Punch Mocktail Recipe

The SoundWaves Punch Mocktail recipe couldn’t be easier to make and is also very easy to tweak.

  • 1 oz Lime Sour
  • 3 oz Pineapple Juice
  • 2 oz Pomegranate Juice
  • Garnish with a Cherry

Build all ingredients in mixing glass with ice shake and pour over fresh ice and garnish with a cherry.

Best Pal Mocktail Recipe

The Best Pal Mocktail recipe is one of my favorites. I like to think of it as a virgin mojito with a citrus twist. I also like to use fresh mint in the drink in addition to just a garnish.

  • 1 oz Lime Sour
  • 2 oz Grapefruit Juice
  • ½ oz Mint Syrup
  • Top with Club Soda
  • Garnish with Mint

Build all ingredients except club soda in a mixing glass with ice, shake and pour over ice top with club soda gently stir and garnish with fresh mint sprig gently slapped to express oils.

So whether your kids are asking for a fun drink while on vacation or you just want a refreshing treat sans alcohol, SoundWaves can mix it up for you…and now you can mix up your own at home!
