New Year’s Eve drinks – with and without alcohol

There is one more big party left before we begin our resolutions for the new year, and many of us will be celebrating with champagne flute in hand as the clock strikes twelve on December 31. There are plenty of excellent cocktails that incorporate champagne or other sparkling wines to make the celebration special.

While bubbly will be imbibed at countless parties the world over, a growing number of people are choosing not to consume alcohol. This trend has fueled renewed interest in “mocktails”, but today’s non-alcoholic drinks are a far cry from the same Shirley Temples of yesteryear. The new breed of mocktails have sophisticated flavor combinations that rival the best mixed drinks. Not only do they taste great, they can be enjoyed all evening long without any fear of the dreaded hangover.
