Alright, let me tell you about an amazing mocktail idea I have for my daughter’s 7th birthday party coming up. She’s all about mermaids this year, so of course, I’m going full-on under-the-sea vibes with everything picture-perfect for her parties.

I was browsing Amazon last week and found these adorable fishbowl glasses that would be so cute for serving drinks. That’s when it hit me that we needed a bright, vibrant blue beverage to make the mermaid vibe pop.

Immediately, I thought about this killer blue cocktail called the Blue Lagoon I had before. It’s made with blue curacao, lemonade, and vodka for a tropical, oceany flavor. Obviously, I can’t be serving vodka at a 7-year-old’s party, though!

So, I will make a kid-friendly version using lemon-lime soda instead of vodka and some blue syrup rather than the curacao liqueur. I think that a sweet-tart lemon-lime base with blue syrup will give it that perfect lagoon watercolor. I may even toss a splash of pineapple juice with Sprite for that fizzy, fruity kick.

I’m so excited to make these blue lagoon mocktails with Sprite. I know my daughter will flip when she sees these on-theme mocktails. So, let’s look at why you should try it and what ingredients and simple to easy steps you should take.
