As someone who does not drink alcohol I was delighted to come across this book. So many combinations and twists on classic drinks. This book includes a Roasted Lemonade recipe that I made immediately after reading and it was the greatest lemonade I've ever tasted. Looking forward to trying out more of the recipes. I highly recommend this book.

This book is SO FUN! I’m always looking for non-alcoholic drink options since I don’t really like drinking alcohol. So glad to have all of these recipes in one place! And such variety!!

"Party Drinks" by Rebecca Hubbell is chock-full of gorgeous, fun drinks for every day delights, hosting parties, and holiday celebrations. The most important part of this book is that the drink recipes exclude alcohol. So it's great for those who are in recovery, those who stopped drinking for health purposes or just don't like alcohol, and it's an amazing resource for parents who want to make fun drinks at home with their kiddos. My kids have always enjoyed "experimenting" and mixing their own drinks and this book has ideas we wouldn't have even thought of. I wish there were recommendations for the heavy cream alternatives. It was included in so many recipes. I'll be subbing it with coconut cream for my family but am curious what the author would recommend as a substitute.

My useless millennial niece and nephews adore vodka and club soda …. why pay $10 for something that tastes like nothing????? These drinks are amazing – especially since it has come out that no one should have more than two drinks A WEEK….how are the wine lovers of France handling THAT advice???

Great recipes in here for drinks that will make no one miss the alcohol…this would be the perfect book for a dry wedding or a signature dry drink at one. Highly recommended - #shortbutsweetreviews

Delightful. Party Drinks by Rebecca Hubbell on Mocktails is a treat for the eyes. It's such eye candy that every page is beautiful.

I personally find that a book on Mocktails is needed. Are a lot of these drinks loaded with sugar? Yes, but they are meant to be used for special occasions or special events. So if you want a recipe with creative drink choices that feel celebratory but are not with liquor then this is it.

That's it beautifully photographed is a given, it's gorgeous but my favorite part is how creative the drinks are. My favorites were Blueberry Lavender Spritzer and Jingle Bell Punch. This reminds me the book does offer special holiday recipes for celebrations.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the amazing publisher Quarto Publishing Group for the opportunity to read and review Party Drinks by Rebecca Hubbell.

FINALLY! An alcohol free book of FUN drinks!
You would be surprised how hard it is to come up with a kid friendly drink that isn't just capri suns or juice.

I cannot wait to use some of these drinks for our parties instead of just putting out lemonade or tea for the family and friends who are sober.

We plan to make the Cauldron Bubbles for the kids this halloween!

Thank you Quarto Publishing Group – Rock Point and NetGalley for this early copy in exchange for a review!

Simple, creative, and fun, the recipes in Party Drinks will get you excited to leave the booze off the table and raise a glass with the whole family!

This book is incredible for those who are sober, sober-lite, or just want to include sober drinks to their party! This book has so many amazing recipes that I am so excited to try. There are five categories of drinks, including milkshakes, punches, and more. I feel like so many mocktails that are out there are just different mixes of juice and soda, but this really opened my eyes to all of the possibilities! Plus, it includes recipes to make your own parts, like syrups and whipped creams! I am so excited to have this to reference and to try all of the different drinks throughout the year. I would highly recommend this for any party host!

Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group and NetGalley for this eARC!

Party Drinks drew me in with it's colourful cover and I was so pleased to see the fun fonts and colourful photography continues throughout the book. Every photo had my mouth watering and I can't wait to try the recipes for the drinks. Especially the Mango Lassi, The Strawberry Collada, The Twilight Swim, and The Birthday Cake Milkshake! I love that this book teaches you how to make your own syrups and to create so many amazing drinks with zero alcohol. It's fantastic and I 100% recommend Party Drinks.

Love the layout of this book. It’s full of beverage knowledge…not just recipes.

So many fun and visually pleasing drink recipes. The artfully done photos of the drinks in this book really make you want to jump in your car and head to the store to buy all the ingredients.

I can’t wait to try the Breakfast Soda recipe!!!

Check out the author’s Instagram page sugarandsoulco. It will make you drool!

Party Drinks is a beautiful collection of non-alcoholic recipes - dirty sodas, punches, floats, milkshakes, lemonades, ice teas, spritzers, and refreshers. The variety of recipes here is impressive. There are so many different types of drinks for every occasion and every taste! The pictures and the look of this book is phenomenal. This is an exquisite book!

Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to review this eARC in exchange for my honest review on the book!

I requested two books about drinks from NetGalley Mr Lyans Cocktails at Home and and Party Drinks: 62 Nonalcoholic Dirty Sodas, Punches & More to Celebrate!

I'm reviewing these together because, although the content differs, and they are both unique and charming books in their own ways, my reviews were going to be remarkably similar. Both books have a clear and easy to understand layout - introduction, tools, how to make your own ingredients and then recipes, neatly divided into logical chapters and then an index. Both books have both ounces and grams. Both are attractive and full of helpful tips and information. And I will probably never make any of the drinks for either of these books (except a gin and tonic, and I don't actually agree with Ryan's advice to make everything as cold as possible and use as much ice as fits in the glass - what the point of using quality ingredients if they are going to be too cold to taste?). I go out a lot, and these slightly more complicated and messy to make drinks are things I am happy to pay other people to make for me.
That said, I would be delighted and amused if someone gave me either of these attractive books as a gift. They are full of pretty pictures and delicious looking drinks, and make me dream of a life where I am tidy and have 12 kinds of bitters and 6 types of sodas in my butlers pantry.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for an E-Arc in exchange for an honest review.

Party Drinks is the cutest book of drink recipes you will encounter!

I know the joke is every girl needs at least 3 drinks on the go at home, and I fully subscribe to this idea. As such, I'm always looking for cute recipes to spice up my options. I went into Party Drinks excited, but not really knowing what kind of recipes they would have. It was such a great surprise! There were tons of options that I could make for parties and just for fun. Accessible, but still interesting and different enough to be a treat.

Thank you to the publisher and to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

See this book is perfect I’m a competitive powerlifter so it’s nice to have options that don’t involve alcohol everytime. I love how creative the recipes are and I can’t wait for parties now so that I can mix up something fancy

It's party time, and beyond just snacks, the drinks featured in this book have the potential to elevate the party atmosphere. Whether you're aiming to keep the party energy alive or initiate the festivities, the selection of drinks caters to both children and adults. These beverage options have the versatility to add flair to any gathering. For those adults who want to avoid a sober affair, there's the opportunity to add a spirited twist to your celebration - pun intended.

This book is so much fun. I love the gorgeous photos and the font for the text. I could feel the author’s joy in these pages. The recipes for the different drinks all sound so yummy. My favorite thing about the book is that the drinks are nonalcoholic! Looking forward to making drinks for my next party!

Party Drinks by Rebecca Hubbell

This is a beautiful book of nonalcoholic drink recipes! It is organized by Dirty Sodas, Spritzers & Refreshers, Floats & Milkshakes, Lemonades & Iced Teas, and Party Punches. There are also recipes for homemade components and an index for ingredients. There is a picture for each drink (bonus!) and many recipes contain notes about possible substitutions or shortcuts.

Thank you to #NetGalley and #QuartoPublishingGroup for a free copy of #PartyDrinks. All opinions are my own.

Gorgeous photos, delicious-sounding drinks, easy-to-follow recipes and instructions, and best of all, no alcohol required. These mocktail recipes make for a fun gathering for EVERYONE, including children and adults who don’t drink alcohol or just aren’t currently in the mood to.

Thank you Rebecca Hubbell, Quarto Publishing Group – Rock Point, and NetGalley and for providing this ARC for review consideration. All opinions expressed are my own.

I loved this book! As someone who has to cut down on alcohol, this gives me drinks, teas, lemonades, and punches I can create for parties and festive occasions. Many of them are so simple that I can make them as a treat when I need something after a long day.
The author talks you through each step including making your own simple syrups and whipped cream. I loved that each drink came with a photo so you could see what the outcome should look like.

This is such a great book and as someone who isn't big on drinking alcohol i loved having all these different options to try out. I never thought about making such lovely looking drinks for myself and feel they'd work as well if you didn't want anyone knowing you weren't drinking!

I liked that the not only are there lots of yummy recipes and ideas but also a section on how to make the syrups and other components you might not have at hand to make the drinks.

Great book highly recommend
