Merry Mixers

If you're cutting back on or avoiding alcohol this season—or just want to offer options for guests who are—here are festive holiday party drinks. that are minus the alcohol but not the cheer.

Instead of a BEER:
Open a cold kombucha; the fizzy fermented black or green tea comes in a variety of eclectic flavors. (Kombucha contains a trace amount of alcohol that varies by brand.)

Instead of BUBBLY:
Mix fresh or bottled pear juice with sparkling water and a few drops of lemon juice.

Instead of SPIKED EGGNOG:
Try this vegan version: Whirl 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, and 2 tablespoons maple syrup in blender until frothy; grate cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Serve cold.

Instead of a HOLIDAY COCKTAIL:
Mix lime juice, pomegranate juice, and sparkling water; garnish with a lime twist and a few pomegranate seeds.

Instead of RED WINE:
Pour a glass of varietal grape juice. Juice made from wine-quality grapes can be found online and at wineries and specialty stores. Two to try: Oregon's Draper Valley Vineyard and California's Navarro Vineyards.
