Non-alcoholic NYE but Still Keeping it Fun – the Nojito
Not everyone drinks for New Years Eve party celebrations, which is why you shouldn’t feel pressured to have alcoholic drinks for NYE. If you don’t want to imbibe but still want to have the feel of a fancy NYE cocktail in your hand, try the virgin-mojito — aka, the Nojito. The cocktail still has that great mojito flavor, with the mint, lime, club soda and sweetness but without all the rum. Replace your rum with rum extract, a few extra ounces of club soda and add brown sugar according to desired sweetness and you have a fancy cocktail that tastes just as good but won’t make you hungover.
If you’re not feeling like drinking, City NYE will have a variety of non-alcoholic drinks for New Years Eve partying without all the alcohol.
