Not surprisingly most of my work for the Super Bowl has been alcoholic. When hosting a large party though you always need to consider the needs of those who don’t drink. There are quite a few options. I’ve offed a few here for your perusal.
The Classics: There are a ton of classics that fill this role. Most usually soda of some kind. I offer this as an alternative. Either buy some specialty sodas (eg Jones, Izze, etc) to offer a bit of spice. Or, even more creative. Get some flavored syrups, you can usually get these from a local coffee shop, and create a make your own Italian soda bar. Flavored syrup, soda water and optionally half and half. I assure you party goers won’t be expecting that.
Sparkling Cider: Although this is kind of a classic I think it deserves a category of its own. There are quite a lot of things you can do with sparkling cider. For example try adding a touch more flavor with a couple dashes of bitters. This is obviously not suggested for those who drink *no* alcohol as bitters contain some.
Mocktails: There is an entire class of cocktails that have no alcohol at all. I think the reigning queen of these is definitely Natalie Bovis-Nelsen AKA “The Liquie Muse” who has recently released a book of mocktails called Preggatinis. If you’d like to sample a couple of the recipes Natalie has a blog for the book. I think these are a great option for kids especially as it lets them have an adult drink in a cocktail glass, if you dare.
So there you go. You should be all set for your up-coming Super Bowl party.
