Mocktails are a big trend right now. When you want to enjoy a fancy drink, but don’t want alcohol, mocktails are the perfect solution. There are a lot of mocktails that can be found in the grocery store right now but most have the nutritional value of pop (i.e. lots of sugar and no nutrients).

Last summer some of you may have seen the Mom’s Playground trailer out and about which was serving milk-based mocktails – called Milktini’s. These delicious drinks were meant as a special treat for moms, but were enjoyed by men and women of all ages. So today I have the exclusive Milktini recipes to share just with you!

The syrups used in these recipes are from Summerland Sweets. If you want, you can also just use jam, but you will need to mix it with some water until it is the consistency of syrup. And the bonus of these drinks is that they have all the benefits and nutrients of milk with just a touch of sweetness.

Tell me: Which Milktini do you want to try first? Or do you have another combination that you are going to try?
