If you’re looking for a delicious mocktail that’s as fresh as a daisy, TikTok has you covered. Here are five refreshing springtime mocktail recipes for your next garden party.
Fresh strawberries are the key ingredient for this mocktail. Begin by adding ice, non-alcoholic dry gin, non-alcoholic Campari and non-alcoholic sweet vermouth to a mixing glass.
