I am planning a small New Year’s Eve celebration here at home with our (not-so) little family. The one thing I love to have on hand is a fun non-alcoholic beverage. I remember when my mom would let my brother, sister and I sip sparkling grape juice or a mocktail out of her expensive champagne flutes and how grown-up it made us feel. I was ten years old on top of the world holding that flute like I was thirty. The funny thing is that I AM thirty now and I buy and drink the sparkling grape juice with my own kids on Christmas Eve now.
This year I have plans to sip on non-alcoholic drinks, eat popcorn, bang on pots and pans, twirl our noisemakers, watch the ball drop on TV and have fun with countdown balloons. We have never done anything big on New Year’s Eve because Mike or I have always had to work or haven’t been able to find a babysitter. Four kids later I have given up on even trying to go out because staying home with our kids is where I want to be anyways.
I have rounded up 12 non-alcoholic drinks that would be perfect for New Year’s Eve, a celebration or any other holiday when there are kids, non-drinkers or pregnant/breastfeeding mommas in attendance. Yeah, I know how it feels to be that mom after what felt like a decade of being pregnant!

What do you have planned for New Year’s Eve this year? Does it involve a mocktail or a cocktail?
