On warm weekend afternoons you'll often me in the backyard, gardening, reading or catching up with friends on the phone. Because it feels just a bit too early to pour a drink for myself, I've rounded up a few good non-alcoholic drinks that refresh — all without the booze.
Many non-alcoholic drink roundups feature "mocktails" and recipes that seem more like a cocktail than anything else. While often wonderfully delicious, there's also a whole world beyond mocktails — a world consisting of delicious iced teas and lemonade, spritzers and sparklers and sodas. Here are a few of my favorite weekend backyard recipes. Do you have a go-to?
