If you're planning the menu for your Labor Day party, you've likely made a list of everything you need. Food for the carnivores and vegetarians, beer, and of course rosé. You're forgetting something — options for your non-drinking guests like these
non-alcoholic drinks everyone at your party will love. Some of your guests probably aren't into day drinking and others might be sober. These people are all too often relegated to drinking water unless they've brought their own mocktails. Make sure your party is all inclusive by offering things like sparkling water, kombucha, ice coffee, and more.
Annelies de Bruijn told the Huffington Post that when attending parties she's often left with
very few beverage options. "I ended up with tap water and a confused host," she said of one social gathering that neglected to offer non-alcoholic choices. It's important to remember that not everyone on your guest list wants to rosé all day. What's more, when non drinkers throw a party they usually still offer alcohol for their guests who want to partake. It's time to return the favor by providing some enjoyable and delicious options for everyone attending your backyard Labor Day bash. Not sure where to start? These non-alcoholic drinks will make everyone on your guest list happy. 1 Perrier & Juice Drink
Perrier is a tried and true sparkling water, and they've recently upped their game with the new
Perrier & Juice Drink. A great alternative to soda, Perrier & Juice drinks are made with real fruit juice and come in flavors like peach and cherry, strawberry and kiwi, and pineapple and mango. I've tried these refreshing sparkling juice drinks, and they're absolutely delicious. 2 Kin Social Tonic
