    Make it a Mocktail!

    Put on your mixologist hat and step behind the bar - it's mocktail hour! Put a sober-curious spin on a classic or invent your own signature non-alcoholic cocktail using a four-step formula.

    A good formula to follow is 4 parts base, 1 part sour, ½ part sweet, and a garnish. For example, use 4 ounces ginger beer, 1 ounce lime juice, ½ ounce honey, and a lime wheel to make a Mocktail Mule. Here are some ideas to get you started:
