Why choose an alcoholic concoction when there are many mouthwatering non-alcoholic drinks for baby showers out there? Drinks are the second most crucial component of a baby shower after your friends, family, food, and decor.
Along with the traditional blue and pink options, they now offer a variety of multicolored non-alcoholic drinks. To help you have a killer start to the party, we’ve got some non-alcoholic drink ideas for baby showers right here.
Mocktails for baby showers are all about getting everyone involved in the excitement. Since you don’t need to consume alcohol to appreciate them, they’re ideal for occasions where your honored guest cannot consume alcohol.
Do mocktails contain alcohol? Mocktails are imaginative non-alcoholic drinks that can be used as an alcohol substitute. Despite this, mocktails are still just as delectable as drinks.
Pretty Pink Punch
Consider punch bowl drinks if you don’t want to mix drinks all afternoon because you’re also in charge of the baby shower games or if you just don’t want to mix drinks for that long.
You should mix everything for this recipe and the majority of punch recipes just before serving to maintain the fizz. The recipe produces 32 miniature punch cups.

Cute Blue Punch
The color blue is enchanting, calming, and revitalizing all at once. And yes, we don’t want to point out that you have to pick blue for a newborn baby boy shower. No matter what gender your baby will be, you can pick any color.

A must-have beverage for daytime events is the mimosa. The best part is that you can customize your mocktail to use ingredients you already have on hand.
Consider having a virgin mimosa bar where guests may mix their own drinks if you want to have even more fun.

Simple Color-Changing Magic Lemonade (Blue-Purple)
Butterfly pea flower makes this simple magic lemonade, which transforms from blue to purple right before your eyes. Kids and visitors will both be impressed by this wonderful mixture! Plus, it only has ten ingredients and uses 100% natural coloring!
- A handful of butterfly blue pea flowers
- 1 cup brown sugar or your favorite natural sweetener
- 1 cup water to dissolve the sugar (skip if using other natural sweeteners like maple, honey, or agave)
- 1 cup of filtered water boiling
- 2 additional cups of filtered water at room temperature
- Few drops of Lavender extract optional
- I-2 lemons for color change
- Ice for serving
- You must first prepare a simple sugar syrup. To start, melt 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water in a small saucepan over low heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved completely. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
- Simply mix 1 cup of boiling water with a few butterfly pea flowers, and let them steep for about five minutes.
- The sugar syrup, steeped blue pea flower liquid, and the two remaining cups of water should all be combined in a big jug.
- If you want, you can add a few drops of lavender extract for a calming lavender flavor.
- You now have dark blue butterfly pea flower tea. The liquid turns purple as soon as you squeeze some lemon juice into it. It would be great if you give each person a half of a lemon so they can squeeze the juice in on their own. To get the whole magical effect, you might also pre-squeeze the lemon juice and let each person add some before stirring the beverage.
Use seasonal fresh fruits to create simple mocktails that everyone in your company will enjoy. These simple spritzers go great with anything you’re offering as food for your guests to nibble on, from brunch-style appetizers to fancy cupcakes, and are ideal for large groups.

- 1 cup chilled ginger ale/ginger beer or non-alcoholic champagne
- ½ cup pineapple juice (unsweetened)
- ½ cup lemonade
- Fill the bottom of a glass with layers of fruits.
- In a different glass, combine the remaining ingredients.
- Pour the combined mixture into the glass of fruits.
Are there non-alcoholic kombuchas? There certainly are. A kombucha mocktail contains all the good bacteria and antioxidants found but is served as a tasty, bubbly, citrus-infused beverage.
- Crushed ice for serving
- Salt + sugar + chili powder for the rim
- 1 lime sliced
- 1 orange sliced
- 1/2 grapefruit sliced
- 2 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
- 2 ounces freshly squeeze lime juice
- 6 ounces grapefruit or citrus kombucha
- 2 ounces ginger beer
- On a small plate, combine the salt, sugar, and chili powder. Each glass should be rimmed with a lime wedge and then coated with the salty, spicy sugar mixture.
- Crushed ice and a mixture of sliced citrus should be added to the glasses.
- Combine the juices and kombucha in each glass. Add ginger beer to the top of each beverage.
Here’s a simple tutorial on how to make a non-alcoholic Rainbow Sherbet Punch using only three ingredients.
If there were ever a gathering where you could showcase your mocktail game, it would be a baby shower. With festive beverages that are safe for consumption during pregnancy and breastfeeding and alcohol-free but delicious, you can show off your mocktail abilities.
The ingredients you decide to mix are crucial in creating the best mocktails and savory non-alcoholic beverages. Choose fresh fruits and garnishes rather than adding plenty of simple syrups to your mocktails. For all kinds of festive cocktails you can make for the most entertaining baby shower you’ve ever thrown, N/A wines can also make a fantastic base for baby shower drinks.
Non-Alcoholic Drinks for Baby Shower FAQs
Serving mocktails during a baby shower is as suitable as it gets as the expectant guest of honor typically decides not to drink. Serving out a variety of festively themed mixed mocktails and blends for toasts is a common way to indicate a happy occasion.
Generally, it’s best to avoid serving hard liquor at baby showers to keep attendees from overindulging.
The temptation to cut costs, lose weight, and avoid hangovers seems to be strong these days.
Here are some nice mocktail ideas for ensuring that nondrinkers don’t miss out despite the fact that it can be difficult to give N/A drinks the same level of sparkle as their alcoholic counterparts.
- Pretty Pink Punch
- Cute Blue Punch
- Virgin Mimosa
- Sparkling Berry Sangria
- Rainbow Sherbet Punch
While it would be great to offer mocktails for nondrinkers at a baby shower, there are popular non-alcoholic drinks you can also serve at a party. These include:
- Apple Beer
- Italian Soda

Non-alcoholic wines in decorative bottles are also a lovely addition to your bar.
