Delight your family with a refreshing Diwali drink. Here are 7 simple, easy, non-alcoholic mocktail recipes to offer your family and guests this Diwali.

Diwali is around the corner and even if you don’t have many guests in Diwali 2020, welcoming guests with a drink has always been part of Indian culture.

These Diwali mocktails are a wonderful Diwali celebration idea, as they are non-alcoholic and can be had by people of all age groups – be it children or old people.

Mocktails are drinks which are an imitation of a cocktail and mostly contain citrus or tropical fruits or are in the form of smoothies containing fruit purees, ice-cream or other milk-based products.

They are suitable for kids, teens and even pregnant women as they contain a high dose of antioxidants, fibre, vitamins and minerals apart from the calories. Fresh fruits are preferred but you can also use the frozen, unsweetened versions..
