5 Ginger Beer Mocktails To Spice Up Your Life

If you love the spicy, not-too-sweet taste of ginger beer, you’ll love these ginger beer mocktails. These drinks are chock-full of vitamin- and antioxidant-rich juices, but they’re fancy enough to make you feel like you’re drinking a cocktail. And when you’re ready for an alcoholic beverage, I’ve provided alcohol suggestions to easily transform these mocktails into cocktails.

Beet Ginger Mule Cocktail

Ginger beer is not actually beer and contains no alcohol. It’s a stronger, spicier, and less-sweet version of ginger ale. I love the robust taste and the fiery kick of ginger. Some of my favorite ginger beers include:

Beet Ginger Beer Mocktail

Beet juice is a delicious, super-healthy ingredient for mocktails. Even if you don’t love the flavor of beet juice, it transforms in this delicious, vitamin-packed drink. It also adds amazing color!

Put the mint leaves and lime juice in a cocktail shaker and muddle gently. Add the ginger honey syrup, beet juice and ice, then shake until frosty. Strain into a glass with fresh ice and top with ginger beer. Add a sprig of mint for garnish.

Make it a mule by adding 1.5 ounces of vodka!

Add 1.5 ounces of bourbon for a delicious cocktail!

Ginger Blood Orange Mocktail

Hop Wtr blood orange mocktail

This mocktail is made with ginger beer and another carbonated beverage I want to tell you about – HOP WTR.

HOP WTR is a sparkling water that is brewed with hops, giving it a light, beer-flavored seltzer taste. It’s completely non-alcoholic, but it claims to give you a “buzz” due to the addition of adaptogens (herbs that work to counteract stress in the body) and nootropics (supplements that may improve cognitive function). It’s calorie-free, sugar-free and gluten-free, and tastes a lot better than a regular seltzer.

After trying out HOP WTR for several days, I can say that for me, it helps take the edge off a stressful day. I feel a bit more relaxed and little more focused after I drink a can.

To make this mocktail, you’ll need:

  • 1 blood orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger (or more to your taste)
  • ginger beer
  • 1 can Blood Orange HOP WTR

In a tall glass, mix the juice of half the blood orange with the freshly grated ginger. Add ice to the glass and top with HOP WTR and a generous splash of ginger beer. Drop in a couple slices of blood orange and give it a good stir before drinking.

(Note: In the photo above, we made our mocktail in a smaller glass because we drank half the can of HOP WTR before making the mocktail.)

It’s not recommended to mix HOP WTR with alcohol. To make this a cocktail, take out the HOP WTR and add 1.5 ounces of orange flavored vodka.

These ginger beer mocktails are the perfect way to mix yourself up a fancy beverage while staying sober and healthy. Cheers!
