12 Best Non-Alcoholic Brunch Mocktails
Wake up sleepy head, we’re going brunching.
Step aside mimosas with the cheap bubbles and yawn-fest oat milk lattes, these breakfast mocktails are taking over brunch with mouthwatering recipes to spark your morning tastebuds. While these recipes can be enjoyed anytime of day, let’s face it, a bottomless non-alcoholic drink is more satisfying in between bites of eggs benny and fluffy pancakes. And no matter what your mood or type of brunch drink might be your a.m. fancy, this list is sure to tempt even the night owls to break muffins and sip mocktails under the sun’s rays.
