National Mocktail Week

National Mocktail Week is observed during the second week of January, and it’s a holiday week that celebrates the non-alcoholic drinks that just about everyone can enjoy. People abstain from alcohol for a variety of reasons, and mocktails allow people to socialize with friends, coworkers, and family members without having to resort to adding alcohol to a drink.

Some of the more popular mocktails include virgin margaritas, Shirley Temples, virgin mojitos, non-alcoholic Piña Coladas, and several dozen other drinks that a person can enjoy. This is the perfect week to try one of these mocktails for the first time or to throw a mocktail party for friends and colleagues.

The History of National Mocktail Week

This holiday was first created in 2018 by Marnie Rae. She’s a proud mom of three children who has her own blog and created National Mocktail Week after getting sober. Although it took a while for this holiday to develop a head of steam, its popularity has increased over the past few years as people are beginning to see how freeing this holiday can be.

Observing National Mocktail Week

National Mocktail Week is the perfect time for people to try one of the many mocktails out there. There are many different non-alcoholic recipes, and it could take hours to go through all of them. All a person has to do is find the one that they like, gather up some like-minded people, and throw a mocktail party.

Although we can’t tell anyone how to observe this holiday week, we do have a bit of advice. We suggest that people make mocktails out of sugar-based recipes and not sour-based alcohol recipes. They turn out better, and they help mask the fact that they don’t have alcohol in them. While celebrating this holiday week, people should also use the hashtag #NationalMocktailWeek to spread the word about this holiday on social media.
