Mocktails for Every Occasion: A Collection of Licensed Images

Mocktails for Every Occasion

Planning a party is always exciting. You can think of all your favorite recipes for the main dish and dessert, and you never forget about the booze! After all, what’s a party without some drinks? 

 

But if there’s another thing you should never forget, it’s that not everyone drinks. In a room full of people with wine and shot glasses in their hands, there has to be something for those who don’t drink alcohol. That’s when mocktails take the limelight!

 

Mocktails are nonalcoholic drinks that are closely similar to cocktails. They’re “mock” cocktails. But don’t let the name fool you; these drinks are just as enticing! As an enthusiast of any recipe I can get my hands on, I know there’s a perfect mocktail recipe for every occasion. And just like any blog, the best way to share a mocktail recipe is to have beautiful images to go along with it.

 

KitchenBloggers has put together a collection of licensed images of mocktails that you can use for your recipe. If you’ve just mastered a new mocktail recipe for a recent party and want to share it with the world, our images of mocktails will make your blog post more alluring. What sorts of mocktails can you find in the collections? Let’s take a look!

Virgin Cosmopolitan

Who can resist this fancy drink, perfect for a girls’ night or a formal dinner party? The red hue of the Virgin Cosmopolitan is undeniably enticing! The flavors of cranberry, lime, and orange juice make for a delightful drink. It’s the Cosmo but without the vodka. Apart from the sweetness with a touch of tang, you must admire the details of the whole mocktail.

 

 

The lime and sugar rimming the glass is perhaps the most exciting part. The sugar crystals add sophistication to the drink, while the lime gives it a zesty smell and flavor. The more elegant the mocktail looks, the more challenging it is to capture with a photograph. You have to make it look as irresistible as it is in real life!

Tequila Sunrise Orange Mocktail

I have to hand it to the Tequila Sunrise Orange Mocktail for being one of the most beautiful drinks I’ve ever seen. It’s easy to see why non-drinkers often favor this drink. The colors alone are captivating! You get a hint of how it tastes just by looking at it — bright and citrusy.

 

 

The Tequila Sunrise Orange Mocktail is a mixture of orange juice, grenadine, and any nonalcoholic carbonated drink. The key to this mocktail is to ensure that the grenadine sinks to the bottom of the glass. As it does, it gradually creates that lovely sunrise effect. It’s a crime not to beautifully capture the red to a light orange gradient in your photo!

Blue Lagoon Mocktail

It’s impossible to run out of breathtaking images with the Blue Lagoon mocktail! The color is already so enchanting, and it only gets better when you add ingredients like fruits and mint leaves. 

 

 

The refreshing taste comes from its primary ingredients: blue Curaçao, lemon juice, and Sprite. You can also rim the glass with sugar if you want to take things up a notch. Don’t forget a slice of lemon for garnish!

 

Imagine you’re in a blue lagoon, surrounded by refreshing blue waters — that’s where the Blue Lagoon Mocktail takes you! Great photos of this mocktail should show what it feels like to take a sip of the drink on a hot day. You should feel the refreshing chill of the drink and how you can almost taste the tart, citrusy flavor.

Virgin Cucumber Gimlet

Your first look at the Virgin Cucumber Gimlet might make you think it’s too simple. But what this mocktail lacks in color, it makes up for in flavor. The main ingredients are club soda, lime juice, muddled cucumber, and simple syrup. Serve it in a rocks glass over crushed ice, and you’re good to go.

 

 

The cucumber flavor is very distinct, making it a great choice if you want something unique. However, the simplicity makes it challenging to photograph. It would be best if you found the right angle to show off the beautiful light green color of the drink. Your image should show how crisp and refreshing it is. Even if the mocktail looks simple, it can still be photo-worthy and drink-worthy!

Non-Alcoholic Sangria

Of course, Sangria wouldn’t be Sangria without wine. But did you know that you can also make a nonalcoholic version of this Spanish classic? This Nonalcoholic Sangria is a great drink to have on hand whether you’re hosting a party or just want something refreshing to sip on. You have lemon, lime, orange, cranberries, and more in one drink!

 

 

The challenge in photographing this drink is to capture all the ingredients in one frame. It could look like a lot going on, but that makes the drink so unique. You can see all the different colors and flavors, and it’s up to you to show that off in your photo.

Virgin Piña Coladas

Ah, our all-time favorite summer drink! The Virgin Piña Colada is perfect for hot days when you just want to relax by the pool. It mixes pineapple juice, coconut cream, and pineapple chunks. If you want that extra flavor boost, you can add rum extract. It’s Piña Coladas without the high alcohol content associated with real rum.

 

 

When you see a glass of Virgin Piña Colada, you should feel the urge to dive right in. You think of the hot sun beating down on you and this drink helping you cool off. It should capture all the layers of the drink, from the pineapple juice at the bottom to the whipped cream on top. The photo should make you feel like you’re on a tropical island, sipping on this refreshing drink!

Shirly Temple

Nobody can say no to a Shirley Temple! This nonalcoholic drink is perfect for kids and adults alike. It’s so easy to make, too! You probably first had it when you were a kid, and now you can make it for your children. The classic Shirley Temple is just lemon-lime soda with a dash of grenadine and a cup of ginger ale.

 

 

But what makes a Shirley Temple so unique? It’s the nostalgia factor. This drink takes you back to simpler times, and that’s what you should capture in your photo. The drink itself is effortless, so you need to find a way to make it look special. Keep your eye on that Maraschino cherry garnish or the fizz of the soda as it’s poured into the glass. Whatever it is, make sure it shows the iconic status of the Shirley Temple!

Find the Perfect Cookbook Template for Your Next Project

People who love cooking tend to accumulate knowledge and expertise through years of honing their craft. You may have experimented with classic recipes and found improvements that made significant differences in the taste of a particular dish.


At some point, you might want to share your recipes and cooking tips with others as a cookbook. Creating a cookbook from scratch can be daunting, but luckily, many excellent resources are available to help you get started. 

One of the things that you need is a cookbook template. This will give you a framework to work within as you create your cookbook.

Why Use a Cookbook Template?

A cookbook template is a document that contains the layout, design, and formatting of a cookbook. It’s a starting point for creating a new cookbook and can save you a lot of time and effort in the design process.


It can include everything from the cover design to the layout of recipes and ingredients and can be customized to fit your specific needs. It’s a “recipe” for creating a cookbook, and with a bit of time and effort, you can find the perfect template for your next project.

Factors To Consider in a Cookbook Template

Here are the factors you should consider when choosing a cookbook template:

Trim Size

The trim size of your cookbook will be one of the first things you’ll need to determine. Common cookbook sizes include 5″ x 8″, 6″ x 9″, and 7″ x 10″. Once you’ve decided on trim size, you can begin narrowing down your template options.


This factor is crucial because it will determine the number of pages in your cookbook and how much text and photography you can include on each page. If you have a large amount of content, you’ll need to ensure your chosen template can accommodate it without making your cookbook look crowded or unbalanced. Generally, if you plan the content of your cookbook, it becomes easier for you to choose a suitable size for the cookbook.

Sectioning

A cookbook entails more than just publishing your recipes. It has to be organized in a way that is logical and makes sense to the reader. You should carefully evaluate your requirements to determine whether you need sectioning because it will impact the overall layout and design of the cookbook. 


Part of this organization involves sectioning your cookbook. It would help to decide which sections will work best for your book and then find a template with these sections already set up. If you want to have sections for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert recipes, then find a template with these sections. This will save you time and energy in the long run.


Of course, you can always arrange your recipes alphabetically, but that might not make sense for your cookbook. For example, if I wanted to have a section for holiday recipes, I wouldn’t want them scattered throughout the book.

Design and Layout

The design and layout are equally as important as determining the sections included in the template. Your cookbook should be visually appealing and easy to navigate. It should be intuitive for the reader to find what they’re looking for. 


If the cookbook is for a specific audience, consider their needs when choosing the layout. For example, if it’s for children, use bright colors and clear font. 


The design would depend mainly on the number of recipes, the type of recipes, and the target audience. If your cookbook is image-heavy, make sure there is plenty of white space to give readers’ eyes a break.

Recipe Structure

Some templates have a form for the recipe you have to fill in, which can be helpful if you’re not used to writing out recipes. Others provide more of a blank slate so you can format your recipes. Consider how much structure you need for your recipes. Just make sure that it’s consistent throughout the book for the comfort of readers. It is also possible that you might have different recipes to bring variety to the recipe structure.

Customizability

You also want to consider customizability for a cookbook template because you will likely want to make changes to suit your specific needs. Some cookbook templates are rigid and don’t offer much flexibility, while others are highly customizable. 


Finding a template that offers you the right balance of customization options is crucial. After all, it’s your cookbook, and you should be able to make it look however you want.

Things To Remember When Creating Your Cookbook

Once you’ve chosen a cookbook template, don’t forget the following:

Always Proofread

It can be tempting to overlook errors while proofreading your work, but it’s important to remember that even a tiny mistake can reflect poorly on your cookbook. Be sure to take the time to read through your work carefully before sending it off to be printed. Have a fresh pair of eyes go through your work if you must know to be confident that everything looks perfect.

Standardize Your Measurements

One of the most important things to remember is to standardize your measurements. This means using either metric, US standard, or imperial measurements. This will ensure that your recipes can be followed no matter where they are being made. 


You can also use one as a base measurement and include the equivalent measures in other types. For example, if a recipe calls for 2 cups of sugar, you could include the metric (500 mL) and imperial (0.9 pint or 17.6 fluid ounces) measurements. However, this can make your recipes more confusing to look at.

Find High-Quality Photos

Aside from your recipes, you should also put a lot of thought into what photos you’ll include in your cookbook. High-quality images are vital to making your book look polished and professional. The quality of the pictures can significantly affect the overall quality and look of the cookbook.


Fortunately, there are a few great places to find stunning food photography. Kitchen Bloggers make food bloggers’ lives easier by providing a varied selection of food content, including high-resolution photos. Our images are licensed, which we can pass to you so that you won’t have to worry about copyright infringement.

License Everything

Speaking of licenses, you should also take the time to license everything in your cookbook. That includes recipes, photos, and any other content you include. There are a few different ways to do this, but using a Creative Commons license is the most common. This will let others know they can use your work if they give you credit.

Takeaway

When beginning a new project, there are plenty of factors to consider, but one of the most critical and often overlooked details is choosing the suitable cookbook template.


With so many options available, it can be hard to know where to start. Just follow the tips above, and you’ll be on your way to finding the perfect cookbook template for your next project in no time. Make sure to research thoroughly and read up on resources like KitchenBloggers to understand better what’s available to you.


Once you have a good grasp of the different cookbook templates, it’ll be much easier to decide. And, with some trial and error, you’re sure to find the perfect one for your needs.

Maybe you’re wondering how to make a recipe book? Thanks to Canva’s recipe book template, it’s easier than you think.


Creating a recipe book is a fun and easy project that you can do entirely online. All you need is a computer and an internet connection. Plus, our recipe book template makes the design process quick and easy.

This article will show you how to create a recipe book using our recipe book template. We’ll also give you tips on making your recipe book even more special.

What is Canva?

Canva is an online design platform that bloggers and small business owners love for its simple yet powerful design tools. You don’t need to have any design experience to create beautiful designs in Canva — everything is drag-and-drop, and millions of templates, illustrations, and icons can choose from. Plus, it has tons of free features!

Before You Start

Before you start creating your recipe book in Canva, there are a few things you should do first:

Decide on the Purpose of Your Recipe Book

The first step is to decide on the purpose of your recipe book. It will be much easier to design and layout your recipe book if you know what you want it to achieve. For example, are you creating a recipe book to share with family and friends? Would you like to sell it online or give it as a gift? Having a clear vision in mind is always the best way to start a project, like the creation of a recipe book to ensure you are on the right track. 


Once you have a clear idea of the purpose of your recipe book, it will be much easier to narrow down your recipe selection and design a cohesive layout.

Choose Your Favorite Recipes

The next step is to choose your favorite recipes. You can go through your recipe box, look online for recipes you want to try, or create a recipe from scratch. Once you have a list of recipes, it’s time to put them into your recipe book.


If you are using a recipe book template, enter the recipe information into the template. This includes the recipe name, ingredients, and instructions. You can also add a photo of the recipe if you’d like. You can select the recipes that you love or the recipes that people want to try out. 

Plan Out Your Branding

The last step is to plan out your branding. This includes choosing a color scheme, font, and logo. You will also need to decide on your recipe book’s overall look and feel. Do you want it to be casual or formal, rustic or modern? Overall, the branding of the recipe book can play an integral role in its success, so it is vital to use a suitable recipe book template. 


If you’re unsure where to start, our recipe book template collection is a great place to look for inspiration. With over a hundred different options, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye.

How To Make a Recipe Book in Canva?

Now that you’ve done all the prep work, it’s time to start creating your recipe book in Canva. The site has a variety of recipe book templates that you can use.


You can also use our recipe book template to create a custom recipe book. Enter your recipe information into the template, and then add your branding.

If you want to create a recipe book from scratch or edit one of our recipe book templates, here’s a step-by-step guide:

Step 1: Choose a recipe book template

The first step is to choose a recipe book template. As we mentioned earlier, we have over a hundred different recipe book templates to choose from, and they’re all free to use!


To find the perfect recipe book template for your project, simply type “recipe book” into the search bar. If you have a specific style, you can use the filters to narrow down your options. For example, if you want a modern recipe book template, select “Modern” from the filter menu. Or, if you’re looking for a recipe book template with a more rustic feel, you can choose “Rustic.”


Once you’ve found a recipe book template you like, click on it to open the editor.

Step 2: Customize the recipe book template

Now it’s time to customize the recipe book template. This is where you’ll add your recipes, photos, and branding.


To add your recipe information, click on the text boxes and start typing. You can also add photos by clicking on the “Uploads” tab and selecting a photo from your computer.


To change the colors, fonts, or logos, simply click on the “Design” tab and make your changes. If you want to add more pages to your recipe book, click on the “Add Page” button.


For your content, we recommend adding recipe names, a brief description, a photo of the recipe, and the recipe instructions. You can also add tips, serving suggestions, or nutritional information if you’d like.

Step 3: Review and Edit Your Recipes

The recipe book is almost complete! The next step is to review and edit your recipes. This is where you’ll ensure all the recipe information is accurate and up-to-date.


You can also use this step to test out your recipes. If you have a recipe you’re unsure about, try making it or tweaking it slightly. Make any necessary changes before finalizing your recipe book.

Step 4: Add Social Media Buttons

This step is optional, but we recommend adding social media buttons to your recipe book. This way, your readers can share your recipes with their friends and family.


To add social media buttons, click on the “Share” button and select the platform you’d like to share on. You can also add a link to your recipe book so people can buy it directly from your website.

Step 5: Download or Print Your Recipe Book

The final step is to download or print your recipe book. To do this, click the “Download” button and select the file type you want to use.


You can also print your recipe book directly from Canva. Just click on the “Print” button and select the printer you’d like to use. Alternatively, you can select the print option and save it as a PDF.

Helpful Tips To Make Your Recipe Book Even Better

Now that you know how to create a recipe book, here are a few tips to make your recipe book even better:

Use High-Quality Photos

People are more likely to make a recipe with delicious-looking photos, so be sure to use high-quality photos in your recipe book. This will make your recipes look more appetizing and stand out from the competition.

Be Concise

When it comes to recipes, less is more. Be sure to be concise in your recipe descriptions. Your recipe book will be easier to read, and readers can find the information they’re looking for. Lengthy recipes are often difficult to follow and end up boring the reader. 

Include a Table of Contents

A table of contents is a great way to help people navigate your recipe book. Be sure to include one in your recipe book so people can easily find what they’re looking for.

Add a CTA

A call-to-action, or CTA, is a great way to encourage people to buy your recipe book. Be sure to include a CTA at the end of your recipe book, so people know how to purchase your book.
