Those of you who are going to be hosting a New Year’s Eve party realize that your guests are expecting certain things. Everyone wants to participate in the countdown that signals the change from the old year to the new one. People tend to celebrate this holiday with a drink. Here are some cheap and tasty options for non-alcoholic drinks that your guests will love!
Typically, people celebrate New Year’s Eve by drinking alcohol. These types of drinks may not be appropriate for every party. Parents might bring their children to the party, and the kids should not be drinking alcohol. Some of your guests will choose to abstain from alcohol due to religious reasons, or because the medication they require doesn’t mix well with alcohol. Don’t forget about the designated drivers!
Here are some cheap, but tasty, options for non-alcoholic New Year’s drinks.
Non-Alcoholic New Year’s Eve Drinks
Welch’s Sparkling Grape Juice
Go visit the Welch’s Sparkling Grape Juice Facebook page and click “like”. They will give you a coupon for $1.00 off any 2 bottles of Welch’s Sparkling Grape Juice. Visually, the bottles look very much like champaign bottles. The “sparkling” part even mimics the bubbles! They are alcohol free and safe for children, and designated drivers, to consume.
