Staying tee-total? No alcohol, no pressure – pull back the lid on a Vida Loca Mockarita instead. With less than 80 calories per 200ml Nitro Can, these vibrant green drinks are ideal for a mocktail that packs a punch. Serve it cold into a cocktail glass with a salt rim for the perfect party finish – it’ll be our little secret. 

How: £26.99 for a case of 12. Shop via drinkmocktails.co.uk

5 Whip this up: the perfect coffee margarita 

Caffeine and tequila – two of life’s finest liquids, poured into one. This drink takes its inspiration from the espresso martini, with impressive results! Coffee and tequila is a cocktail marriage worth exploring – the reposado tequila used here delivers notes of barrel-aged caramel and vanilla.
