Best Non-Alcoholic Drinks to Order at All-Inclusive Resorts

Top 10 Best Non-Alcoholic Drinks

Whether you’re expecting, don’t drink alcohol, or want to order something fun for the kids, this list of the 10 best non-alcoholic drinks to order at your all-inclusive resort will have you sipping on something delicious in no time! You can always order any popular alcoholic drink virgin, and it will be served without alcohol. We recommend substituting alcohol for sodas, syrups, or juices. For example, swap the tequila in a margarita with orange juice, limeade, or club soda to make it non-alcoholic.

We’ve linked each drink to its recipe to help you on your quest of finding the best non-alcoholic drinks at all-inclusive resorts. Feel free to get creative with these cocktails at home, too! 

  1. Virgin Margarita
    • All the great tastes of a traditional margarita, sins alcohol. Try replacing the tequila with a favorite juice or club soda!
  2. Shirley Temple
    • This is a classic, and one of the best non-alcoholic drinks to order at an all-inclusive resort. We like to live on the wild side, and ask for this mocktail to be topped with whipped cream.
  3. Wise Guy
    • This julep-style mocktail incorporates Verjus, which is the juice of unripened grapes and is non-alcoholic.
  4. Fauxjito
    • It’s like a Mojito, but without the rum. They’re sometimes known as Nojitos. It’s a popular cocktail of lime juice, agave, and club soda.
  5. Sangrita
    • Not to be confused with Sangria, the word literally translates to “little blood”. This is typically served as a non-alcoholic chaser to tequila shots, but makes a great virgin version of a Bloody Mary!
  6. Arnold Palmer
    • Imagine if lemonade and iced tea had a baby!
  7. Fauxrangina
    • Take your typical Orange Crush or Screwdriver. Now replace the vodka with Sprite.
  8. Fresh Lime Soda
    • Any bar that can make a mojito can make a Fresh Lime Soda. This is one of the best non-alcoholic drinks, and has ingredients in common with the mojito, minus the alcohol.
  9. Caffè Shakerato
    • Shake things up by ordering this popular Italian non-alcoholic cocktail. It’s born of three simple ingredients that any all-inclusive resort will have; ice, espresso, and sweetener.
  10. Cucumber Cooler
    • This is a great drink to sip on while staying cool by the pool or sprawling out on the beach. If your bartender doesn’t have cucumber water on hand, simply add additional slices of cucumber into the cocktail to give it a flavor boost.

That’s our top 10 best non-alcoholic drinks to order at an all-inclusive resort. Most resorts should be able to accommodate and have the ingredients on hand to make these mocktails. There are of course more of the best non-alcoholic drinks, and you may want to experiment with recipes at home. Be sure to read these tips and tricks for ordering drinks before you visit your next all-inclusive resort. Cheers!

Ordering Popular Alcoholic Drinks at All-Inclusive Resorts

There’s nothing quite like having a cold cocktail to sip on while lounging poolside or laying on the beach. Alcohol can often be one of the most expensive parts of a vacation, up there with transportation and accommodation. One of the best parts of staying at an all-inclusive resort are the bottomless alcoholic beverages. To help you prepare for your vacation, we’ve shared some of our best tips and tricks for ordering popular alcoholic drinks on your next vacation! We’ve also compiled a list of the most popular alcoholic drinks to order at an all-inclusive resort. Not a fan of alcohol? No problem! We’ve made a list of the best non-alcoholic drinks to order, too.

Popular Alcoholic Drinks: Tips & Tricks

Since you know that your drinks will be covered, we recommend creating a list of cocktails you want to try before you arrive. This will help you steer clear of your go-to drink, giving your taste buds the opportunity to branch out. Bartenders often know drinks by certain names, and may not recognize what you order at first. Bringing a list, especially if it includes drink ingredients, allows you to get the drink you desire. The most popular alcoholic drinks at all-inclusive resorts are often not listed on menus. Be prepared and know what to order by bringing a list of both favorites and new drink choices.

When alcoholic drinks are included in the all-inclusive resort price, there’s no need to limit your choices. At all-inclusive resorts, travelers experience less risk and more enjoyment in experimenting with alcoholic drinks they’ve always wanted to try. If a fellow-vacationer recommends you try whatever they’re sipping on, you should order one for yourself! Don’t be afraid to ask people what they’re sipping on if it catches your eye. If you don’t happen to like the drink you ordered, simply leave it and order something else. You won’t be stuck paying for wasted drinks, which sometimes happens at bars and restaurants outside of all-inclusive resorts.

You’re most likely going to stay at an all-inclusive resort in the tropics or Caribbean. Avoid overheating by passing on warm alcoholic drinks during the day. These include Hot Toddies, Irish Coffees, Hot Buttered Rum, etc. Although these are among some of the most popular alcoholic drinks to order, we recommend sticking to some cooler favorites. You’ll find that most alcoholic drinks will be served in either slushie form or “on the rocks” in warmer destinations.

Some resorts keep their most popular alcoholic drinks mixing in slushie machines so they can be served quickly. If you don’t want to wait for your next margarita, piña colada, or daiquiri refill, go with this option. However, if you don’t mind waiting for a fresh cocktail, ask for your drink “on the rocks”. This will require the bartender to make you a fresh cocktail before pouring it over ice. It’s all about premium customer experience, so the bartenders will do their best to meet your requests.

There are several popular alcoholic drinks to order at all-inclusive resorts! You can order your favorite cocktails, or branch out with new recipes, or sip on a little of both. Starting with your welcome cocktail all the way to your last drink of the trip, we hope these tips and tricks help. Remember to drink responsibly, and that water is always an option to keep yourself hydrated! Cheers!
