Cotton Candy Cocktail Recipe (Non-Alcoholic)

The Cotton Candy Cocktail will give the kids their own special drink for New Year’s Eve or maybe during a princess slumber party.

It’s pretty, bubbly, and fun! It’s super easy, even the kids could serve it themselves.

While this may seem like the ideal non-alcoholic drink recipe for kids, it works for any party where you want a sparkly drink without the alcohol. This would work great for a baby shower or a gender reveal party too.

Cotton Candy Cocktail (non-alcoholic drink recipe)

Cotton Candy mocktail Drink Recipe

This Cotton Candy Cocktail reminds me of a “kiddie cocktail.” Boy, did I love those when I was a kid. My extended family owned a bar, where we would get together for the holidays while closed to the public.

I loved having unlimited quarters for pinball, the pool table, and the jukebox. We’d eat, talk, laugh, and play cards.

One of the drinks they’d mix up for me was what we called a kiddie cocktail. It was basically 7-Up or Sprite with grenadine mixed in, topped off with a cherry. When I was a little kid, it felt fancy!

Another fun drink idea you could try is this Cotton Candy Frappuccino recipe. It doesn’t contain any caffeine so it’s a sweet treat to make for the kids!

How to Make Cotton Candy Mocktail Drinks

Set out your plastic champagne glasses. For optional flare, lightly wet the rim of your champagne glasses and dip them in colored sugar. Then place one piece of cotton candy in each glass. Pour the ginger ale over the cotton candy. Place a cherry in the glass before serving. (You can put a cherry or two on a party toothpick or just drop it in.)

Cheers!

I like this idea! I like to try different drinks like this. I'm glad you gave us a non-alcoholic choice. This would be great for a mother-daughter spa day.

Thank you for sharing this with us on the #HomeMattersParty. We hope to see you when we open our doors at 12 AM EST on Friday.
