What is a Mocktail?

A Mocktail is a non-alcoholic drink consisting of a mixture of fruit juices or other soft drinks.

Why is it called mocktail?

Because of the demand for more visually and aesthetic appealing drinks than normal soft drinks, the concept known as "Mocktails" was born. Mocktails, an abbreviation for "mock cocktails", are festive, non-alcoholic party drinks.
