Mulled wine and mince pie parties are a staple part of Christmas celebrations among friends and families, but daytime drinking can leave you feeling drowsy and lethargic as well as unsafe to drive home. If you want to avoid binge drinking, alternate your alcoholic beverages with these delicious alcohol free festive drinks to stay hydrated, or go completely alcohol free for a great party, without the hangover. Mulled wine, the quintessential Christmas drink, is normally alcoholic as it contains red wine and sometimes even brandy, but it needn`t be. If you have a stockist of non alcoholic or low alcohol content red wine near you, or have enough time to buy online, this can be a great way to emulate the taste without the potentially negative effects of binge drinking. If you can`t find non/low alcohol wine, don`t worry, just use cranberry or red grape juice instead. Put everything into a pan and heat on the hob for 5 to 10 minutes until liquid is hot, but not boiling. Then turn the hob off and cover pan with a lid until ready to serve. Ladle into glasses and decorate with a few pieces of orange and a cinnamon stick in each glass. Normally a drink made with cider, but there`s no reason why the alcohol free version made with apple juice, shouldn`t be equally delicious. The trick here is to buy good quality, fresh apple juice, not the made from concentrate stuff you normally find in supermarket`s own brand ranges. Pour tomato juice into a jug and add lemon juice. Then season with Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and serve over ice with a stick of celery to garnish. For more non alcohol drink recipes recipes visit .
