No matter how much planning you do around the holidays, something’s always bound to change last minute. And when it comes to your New Year’s Eve fête, chances are someone’s babysitter is bound to cancel, another guest will be under the weather, and a third will have work the next day. So what do you serve the kids that arrive unexpectedly, your sniffly friend, and your workaholic neighbor who's abstaining from bubbly? Never fear, just keep one of these tasty alcohol-free drinks on hand tonight so no one will feel left out when the ball drops. They’re so ridiculously easy you can grab everything at the store and make within minutes. Get sipping!
