Grandparent Mocktails #7 And #8 (non-alcoholic)


My brother sent me an invite to join him at the website & I get periodic emails from them on the art of grandparenting. The most recent email had a fun article on kid-friendly mocktails & suggested that kids should have spec beverages for their parties & also tasty + festive beverages to enjoy while their elders drink cocktails on spec occasions & holidays. Per the intro, ?Shirley Temple, take a bow & step aside. Some new entertainers have taken center stage. The effervescent, sometimes sparkly, always refreshing & totally non-alcoholic mocktails are beverages that kids & partygoers of all ages will enjoy.? These 2 recipes are the final ones from the series I have entered. *Cheers* !
