Providing alcohol free drinks should be a consideration for every host.

We suggest making any mocktail or try one of the following recipes - search for your own at  The Peterborough Drug Awareness Coalition also has great Mocktail Recipes online.

Please consider sharing your alcohol free drink recipes and help promote the use of moctails at parties and get-togethers!


4 cups hot strong coffee
4 cups scalded milk
6 cinnamon sticks for garnish

Into 6 large mugs pour equal amounts of the coffee and the milk and garnish each serving with a cinnamon stick.

Serves 6.


1 cup sugar syrup
1 pint lemon juice
1 quart strong green tea
2 quarts white grape juice
1 block ice
2 quarts chilled club soda

Combine all ingredients except soda, and refrigerate for an hour or two. Pour over ice in a punch bowl and add the soda. Serve in 4-ounce punch glasses.

Makes about 45 servings.


This is also very good served hot.
4 cups water
1 12-ounce package fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup fresh mint leaves (about 1/2 ounce)
1/2 cup sugar
Fresh mint sprigs

Combine 4 cups water and cranberries in heavy medium saucepan and bring to boil. When cranberries begin to pop, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer mixture until cranberries are very tender, about 10 minutes.

Place 1 cup mint leaves in heat-proof pitcher or coffeepot. Set fine strainer atop pitcher. Pour cranberry mixture into strainer, pressing on solids to extract as much juice as possible; discard solids. Add 1/2 cup sugar to pitcher; stir until sugar has dissolved. Refrigerate mixture until cold. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Keep chilled.) Garnish with mint sprigs and serve.

Niagara's Ultimate Mix High School Challenge

According to the 2001 Ontario Student Drug Use Survey, alcohol is the most widely used drug among adolescents. The goal of the Ultimate Mix High School Challenge is to encourage non-alcoholic activities among high school students and to increase awareness regarding the dangers of binge drinking and impaired driving.

On May 9, 2003, teams of secondary school students from across Niagara competed to create the best tasting non-alcoholic drink. Drinks were judged on safety message, taste, and overall presentation.
