What delicious non-alcoholic beverages do you like at Christmas?

Pregnant and have just stopped feeling sick after several weeks so looking forward to some Christmas treats!

Any good suggestions?
Schloer is quite nice as I recall.

Marks & Spencer do some really nice non alcoholic drinks. Can't think off hand the flavours but one I've just noticed recently I'd passion fruit soda. Also, Fever Tree do a lovely Madagascan Cola which is much nicer than coke (& less crap in it) & the FT Sicilian lemonade also looks nice ], although I haven't tried it.

J2O Glitterberry.
Any of the premium cordials made up with sparkling water.
Cawston Press ginger beer - much daintier taste than most ginger beers, flavoursome rather than hot.

Mulled Apple juice!

Ocado have alovely alcohol free prosecco in pink or white, it's called the Bee's Knees. I ordered about 6 bottles for the christmas period smile

Lidl has some delicious alcohol free mulled punch at the moment, 1.99 a bottle

Cranberry juice, lemonade or soda water, and a splash of lime cordial.

Mulled apple juice.
A warm cranberry/pineapple concoction as a non mulled wine alternative.
Sparkling elderflower. Or the capstone press rhubarb one is a bit different...

Bitter lemon reminds me of Christmas as it was a treat Christmas drink for us as children.

Ooh I do love elderflower normally but had some during the sicky time and now worried I might have been put off it sad

Pineapple juice & ginger ale with a few mint leaves and ice is really lovely

If you can tolerate elderflower there's a beautiful hot drink that's basically heated apple juice, elderflower cordial and a splash of hot water with nutmeg. It's really lovely, and nice to have something warm when others are having mulled wine.

Try a non-alcoholic Tequila Sunrise - pineapple and orange juice, and grenadine. I think that's right anyway. I often experiment with different fruit juices so I could be wrong.

Sainsbury's do a really nice non alcoholic sparkling wine. With a dash of orange juice you could convince yourself it's prosecco.

Fentimans ginger beer , I'm not a fan of fizzy drinks but this is nice with a dash of Roses lime cordial.

Lidl do their own version of Shloer for 99p. It tastes exactly the same!

Martinelli's Sparkling Cider. Non-alcoholic and comes in three flavours (Apple, Apple Grape, and Apple Cranberry).

It's a US product but looks like it's available on Amazon UK.

It's got to be Seedlip. Non alcoholic. Zero calorie distilled spirit. Needs to be mixed but it's tastes grown up and just fab in cocktails

Rochester ginger - has a proper kick to it so feels like a glass of whisky or brandy. Definitely a grown up soft drink!

Cheers everyone wine

Seedlip sounds interesting!

How about a flower in a sparkling drink?

Or any blooming tea served as a hot punch or a cold or sparkling drink?
