15 Mocktails for Your Springtime Shindig

The time has come, our friends, for barbecues, picnics and garden parties. Rule #1 when it comes to spring socializing? All good get-togethers must serve up great drinks. And while you might love a fab cocktail (we do too), when you’re throwing your dainty, flower-laden soiree, keep those kids, baby mamas, DDs and pals who abstain in mind. Serve up one of these mocktails, and we promise no one will be missing the liquor.
