By now, you’ve probably dusted off your grandma’s famous cornbread recipe and dug out your go-to pumpkin pie recipe. But don’t forget to consider the drinks. From kids to big kids, it’s important to have drinks for all ages, and that’s why we love having big batches of mocktails on hand. Mocktails that you can spike, that is. We always start with DOLE Pineapple Juice. It’s the perfect base for fruity mocktails or tropical cocktails, and the 24-can pack is extra helpful when mixing different drinks. Want to make an adult version? Spike it with your favorite spirit or prosecco. Pro tip: have a batch ready before guests arrive, then greet guests at the door with a glass in hand. Trust us, your guests will be full of gratitude.
