Sips of Summer—Mocktails
Mocktails bring all the class and nostalgia of the fifties without the dizzying effects of alcohol. What better way to celebrate a perfectly warm day than lounging on the deck with friends, sipping some sweet and cool refreshing beverages? Fruit juices, fresh herbs, and classic cocktail mixers will come together as a beautiful and tasty alternative to a boozy mixed drink.
And the best part is—these mocktails are actually good for you! With sparkling water, natural fruits and herbs, these drinks are hydrating and rich in vitamins.

Bring out the special tablecloth and glasses to make it an especially classy day. The highlands glass series from Bolivia features various shaped glasses and a tall carafe, translucent enough to show off the colors of your drinks while adding a naturally bubbled texture for a casual and fun feel. Pair these glasses with a bright and boldly colored tablecloth, maybe a vase of flowers, and you’re all set for a retro afternoon in the sun.
