It’s no secret that New Year’s Eve is usually a holiday celebrated with an alcoholic beverage, but it’s always nice to have a non-alcoholic option for those who don’t drink or for the kids.

If it isn’t clear by the name of my blog, I personally enjoy an alcoholic beverage during the holidays. But the “sober curious” trend is in full swing, and I totally get it! It’s always a good idea to reassess your relationship with alcohol, and the New Year is a great time to take look at your habits and push the reset button.

So whether you’re cutting back, turning over a new leaf, or you just want a fun drink for kids and friends who aren’t big drinkers, these punches and mocktails will fit the bill.

These recipes are all unique from one another and use a wide variety of different ingredients, so I’m confident there’s a punch in this roundup for everyone!

They’re also SO easy to make. Most of these punches require less than 4 ingredients and whip up in 5 minutes or less, so they won’t add any extra holiday stress to your plate.

Depending on how many people you need to accomodate, you can easily make these punches in small, medium, or big batches. They’re excellent for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s day brunch.

And if you do want to make an “adult” batch, you can easily add your favorite spirit to any of these punches and they’ll be just as delish.

So without further ado, let’s get right into the recipes!

Which of these non-alcoholic punches do you want to ring in the New Year with? I’m personally excited to try out the Gløgg since my sister in law is pregnant this year and LOVES mulled wine, but they all sound incredibly tasty!
