Every good host needs a few go-to non-alcoholic party drink ideas in their repertoire. Not everyone enjoys indulging in spirits, but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep the party spirit alive! We’re here to provide you with some celebratory beverage recipes that are 100% booze-free.

Creating a separate drink menu may seem like a hassle, but it’s actually quite easy with a little forethought. All the drinks on this list can easily be transformed into adult-only refreshments with a splash or two of liquor. Just make sure they’re labeled accordingly.

Even if all your guests enjoy the hard stuff, providing non-alcoholic party drinks helps them stay hydrated and drink at their own pace. After all, sometimes you want a drink in hand while mingling, but you don’t want the effects of alcohol.

Non-alcoholic drinks aren’t just for adults, either—sometimes kids show up to the soirée. Sipping on a fancy drink makes them feel like they’re part of something special and hanging out with the big kids!

Without further ado, here are seven delicious non-alcoholic party drink ideas that everyone will love!

1. Piña Colada

The iconic piña colada is a vacation in a glass. While they’re quite impressive in both presentation and flavor, these non-alcoholic party drinks are surprisingly easy to make and perfect for summertime entertaining

We recommend serving your piña coladas with some cocktail umbrellas and maraschino cherries to really capture the easy-breezy tropical vibes that make this classic concoction so beloved.


This recipe makes two piña coladas.

  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • ½ cup diced pineapple (preferably fresh, but frozen or canned will work)
  • 2 oz canned cream of coconut 
  • 1-2 cups of ice

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. You can add half a banana for extra creaminess.

2. Strawberry Daiquiri

The perfect pair to your piña coladas, strawberry daiquiris are some of the most popular non-alcoholic party drinks for the same reason as piña coladas—every sip transports you to an island paradise! 

Strawberry daiquiris are like the yin to piña coladas’ yang. Some people don’t like the flavor of piña coladas (usually because of the coconut), and serving strawberry daiquiris lets them enjoy the fun of frozen vacation drinks, too.

Looking for some unique non-alcoholic party drink ideas? Here’s a tip: half-and-half strawberry coladas are divine! 


This recipe makes two strawberry daiquiris.

  • 6-8 strawberries (preferably fresh, but frozen will work)
  • 1 ½ cup lemon-lime soda
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 8 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Garnish with a slice of strawberry.

3. Classic Fruit Punch

Fruit punch is one of the most traditional non-alcoholic party drinks, and for good reason—people of all ages adore it! Party punch is a nostalgic treat that brings back fond memories of school dances, and the young crowd can’t get enough. 

This recipe can easily be spiked with spirits. But again, make sure you label each bowl.


This recipe makes 60 servings of fruit punch.

  • 2 liters ginger ale
  • 64 oz bottled fruit punch
  • 64 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
  • ½ gallon orange sherbet

Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl. Wait 10 minutes for the sherbet to melt. Gently stir. Serve with a ladle.

4. Fresh-Squeezed Orange Juice

Sometimes the best non-alcoholic party drinks are elevated versions of popular beverages. This is one of them. You know how to make it! Simply juice oranges into a pitcher. Our high-end stainless steel pitchers will keep it chilled with no acidity-related issues whatsoever.

This may not seem like the most interesting of non-alcoholic party drink ideas, but trust us, people absolutely adore freshly squeezed orange juice. The difference between fresh and store-bought is night and day. It’s also the perfect mixer for all sorts of cocktails.

5. Bloody Mary Bar

A DIY Bloody Mary bar is sure to thrill guests, whether they’re drinking alcohol or not. Bloody Marys are wonderful non-alcoholic party drinks because they can be customized to the guest’s exact preferences.

To really make your Bloody Mary station pop, start with a solid base. Fill bowls and platters with all sorts of accouterments so guests can garnish their Bloody Marys exactly how they like it. 


The best Bloody Mary recipe depends on who you ask, and the portions aren’t set in stone. Start with tomato juice, and then add dashes and splashes of lemon juice, horseradish, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper until the desired flavor is achieved.


Be sure to provide skewers and toothpicks for crafting. These non-alcoholic party drinks can easily double as snacks or even meals! 

  • Celery
  • Olives
  • Pickled veggies
  • Cocktail shrimp
  • Fresh herbs
  • Deli meats
  • Bacon
  • Cheese cubes
