    This spring I've been going to a lot of parties. It's not just because I'm insanely popular (although I am), it's because spring and summer just happen to be times of year chock full of celebrations. There are weddings and baby showers and graduations galore! It's great to get together and party down with all and sundry, to be sure, but it can also be easy to lose your partying spirit after your third glass of prosecco.

    That's where mocktails come in! I know, I know -- but seriously. Mocktails aren't just the provenance of ladies who are currently with child. You don't need to have banished booze from your sight to sip on a tasty-but-alcohol-free concotion. We've rounded up some of the most delicious, party-friendly, spring-has-sprung mocktail recipes around to help you get the party started. And, while Shirley Temples will always be delicious, these new recipes are bound to leave the classic boring ol' mocktails in the dust!

    Not sure if you got the memo, but Mason Jars are totally in. This old-school canning vessel has been having a "moment" for a while now, and something about their unpretentious nature and simplicity makes it a well-deserved trend. One that is also affordable, and we always love affordable.

    I have to admit that I haven't done much with Mason jars beyond storing jams and pickles, but there is SO much more you can make in them -- from delicious desserts to foods to take with you on the road.

    Check out these 6 things you can use Mason jars for besides jam right here:

    Kids aren’t the only ones that deserve a little treat for Halloween, right? And how about instead of sneaking Snickers bars out of the candy bowl by the front door, you imbibe in something a little more grown-up? Ok fine. Have both. I know I will!

    This blood orange cocktail is the perfect thing to enjoy this Halloween. If you want to make it extra creepy instead of just delicious, add a plastic spider as garnish, then watch your guests freak out. It’s all about the presentation, man.

    It's no secret that many cat owners treat their kitties like members of the royal family. And who wouldn't admit to liking their pets even more than certain cousins? Well now, thanks to a Japanese company called B&H Life, there's no reason you can't let your little fur baby ring in the good times same as any other festive human might -- with a little vino. That's right, you can now pour your kitty a goblet of red cat wine called Nyan Nyan Nouveau whenever you, or your best friend, has had a rough day.

    I love me some sangria. Fruity, boozy, refreshing wine in a glass with ice? Yes please. It’s so awesome that it should hardly be relegated to the summer months alone. With a few simple switches, you can take this treat into the flavors of fall.

    Did you ever wish that you had a friend at home to greet you with a drink at the end of a long day? One that knows that you like your martinis with vodka and a splash of pickle juice (don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it, people!)? One that could maybe call you a cab if you needed to go out again?

    That friend is here, my fellow cocktail drinkers. Now if only he looked like Ryan Gosling … but nothing is perfect, right?

    Here's a recipe you NEED this summer. The kids have their popsicles to cool down, and you can have this amazing whiskey slushie. I know it sounds kind of weird, but trust me and try it, and you will thank me.

    I'm much more of wine girl than a whiskey sipper, but when I tasted this, I was blown away. It's refreshing, delicious, and a little bit dangerous, because it goes down so well. The alcohol does something to the ice that makes it the most amazing consistency, and the combination of lemonade, tea, orange juice, and sugar is perfection. This recipe from Her View From Home is great for parties, especially because you can make it ahead of time and just pull it out of your freezer when you're ready for the fun to begin. Just make sure the kids know it's not for them!
