5 Cool Kiddie "Cocktails"

Mock Pink Champagne

Champagne is delicious, but there's more to the beverage than just its taste. Drinking champagne is a complete experience -- it's about holding the elegant champagne flute, enjoying the tickle of the bubbles and basking in the sense of celebration. More than that, champagne is the go-to drink for making toasts. This is great for adults, but it's not so much fun for the wee ones who have to raise a plastic cup of milk to honor the bride and groom or to ring in the new year. Here's a recipe to make sure everybody gets a chance to participate in the toast.


  • 12 ounces chilled cran-apple juice
  • 12 ounces chilled white grape juice
  • 30 ounces chilled ginger ale

(Yields 12 servings)


Combine ingredients and serve in champagne flutes. For an added touch of elegance, float a strawberry or frozen raspberry in each glass.
