Fruit Juice Served in Cocktail Glasses for Brunch

Creativity expert Andrew Rakos whips up some delicious New Year's Eve mocktails that cater to nondrinkers. His recipes use everything from designer ice cubes to fun-shaped root-beer floats.

Mix juice flavors, pour into ice molds or ice-cube trays and freeze. Add the flavored ice to other beverage bases such as club soda and other clear drinks. As the ice melts, the flavor is added to the drink. Also, if food coloring is added to the flavored ice before freezing, it will be added to the drink with the flavor.

For a different touch, freeze tiny edible flowers into the cubes by first filling trays halfway and freezing them. Add edible flowers and fill trays the rest of the way and freeze. Mix drinks with fizz and colorful juices, such as half berry juice and half soda.

Garnishes for drinks make them more festive. Use any kind of fruit such as grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime slices.
