This Apple Ginger Fizz mocktail recipe is perfect for fall gatherings and get togethers (helllloooo Thanksgiving 2021!). It’s easy to make ahead of time and have ready to serve.
I’m not a fan of alcohol, especially now that I’m in my thirties. I don’t like the way it makes me feel, I don’t sleep well after drinking, and I don’t need it to have fun. More and more of my friends are jumping on the sober train – and I am here for it.
Of course, Holiday gatherings are a time when the drinks tend to be flowing. If you’re new to sobriety at social functions, having a fun mocktail can ease anxiety and make you feel like you’re part of the party. Try my crisp apple ginger fizz mocktail!

This Apple Ginger Fizz Mocktail has the best flavors of fall: fresh honey crisp apples, ginger, and cinnamon. Dress it up with fun garnishes and a fancy glass and you’re set for the season.
What is Ginger Beer?
Ginger Beer is non-alcoholic soda made with ginger root. It’s often loaded with sugar! I try to find Zevia Ginger Beer that’s sweetened with stevia. If you can’t find Zevia, you can substitute the ginger beer for sparkling water with one teaspoon of fresh grated ginger root.
What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a popular fermented tea beverage. It’s pretty simple to make at home (with some time: let it ferment for a few weeks!). As a byproduct of fermentation, lots of beneficial bacterial species are created. These are called “probiotics”- species that actively confer a benefit to the host organism. However, the bacterial profile of kombucha is a bit too different than the human microbiome to really be considered a ‘functional’ probiotic food. Kombucha is still a healthier alternative to sodas and many fruit juices. Enjoy it as a special treat, just like in the Apple Ginger Fizz!
How can I make this mocktail more festive?
I like a sprig of fresh rosemary and a cinnamon stick to dress it up. For another fancy touch, serve in copper mule mugs!
