FUN FABULOUS NON ALCOHOLIC BAR CART AND HERB CITRUS MOCKTAIL RECIPES
When most people think “bar cart” they think loaded up with luscious alcoholic libations! What if you want to go “virgin”… with no alcohol at all. I know perish the thought! But, there are those occasions that we may want a little bit of pop, fizz and non alcoholic pizzazz and still have a fun bar cart set up! My inspiration for this fabulous mocktail bar cart were these oh, so bright yellow sunflower and lots of fresh herb and cold citrus sips! A very sunny post!
The fabulous thing about a bar cart is that most are movable drink stations and can be put wherever the party it! We have a big bar in our breakfast room so I keep a smaller version in the dining room with just a few fun drink options on it!
Today the bar cart is featuring fizzy herb drink! Fresh flavors mixed with herbaceous accents and lots of FIZZ! Oh, yummy!
The cart is stocked with sparkling waters, lime and lemon sparkling waters, fresh sweetened lime juice, orange cream soda, ginger ale, and Stewart’s cherry soda. I know the cherry soda is not citrusy but I love it!
Heavy and pretty glass cubes are filled with lemons and limes and orange slices…And we can’t forget the citrus twists! Small cylinders filled with thyme and rosemary and mint with nasturtiums stand in front of the citrusy slices. They are my herbs of choice for today’s mocktails! This gives garden to table, or should I say mocktail, a whole new meaning! Aromatic just picked flavor! Herbs like rosemary and thyme give these drinks a real interesting kick of flavor!
An ice bucket, colorful yellow straws and some pretty paper napkins in a round cylinder fill out the top of the cart!

Don’t you love this fun bar towel… My mom got it for me. She knows I love bees. Thanks, Mom! It works perfectly with the colors and theme for our mocktails! We are big time bar towel fans here at StoneGable. They have so many great uses… would you like me to do a post on these cheap and fabulous towels?
I use a great butcher block on the dining room table to do the drink mixing so the cart can be filled to the brim with supplies!
Hope you will think “bar cart” for your next mocktail party! And make yourself a fabulous libation!

And here is a post about how I took a very inexpensive, on sale bar cart for Target and gave it a very easy to do BAR CAFT MAKEOVER.
Remember to pin this to your Pinterest DRINK, BAR CART or RECIPE boards. You can follow me on Pinterest and see all the great things I’m finding to pin HERE.
I love the orange cream drinks…did you know Arby’s carries a delicious creamsicle drink in the summer AND Cracker Barrel has a great creamsicle drink you get in an “old timey” bottle!
I love the bar towels too and use them all the time in my kitchen but I’d love for you to do a post on how you use them….please!
I love your sunflower cart. It certainly screams summer and yet refreshing. I like your cart too. I am busy pinning away. Have a wonderful day!!
Well of course we would LOVE a post on bar towels! I use the heck out of them! I love your yellow one with bees, how adorable! I also love bees. I have a wonderful little bar cart I found in HomeGoods that was made in India, as I was dragging it out to my car this lady stopped me and said “Oh I love that, I’d use it as a bar cart!” I laughed and said “that’s exactly what I’m going to do!” Now I want to brighten mine up a little with some pretty flowers, a bar towel, and fizzy drinks! I do collect flavored vodkas that are made in the town I live in, but adding some non-alcoholic bottles to the cart will make it look great. Thanks for this, I actually have a Pinterest Board just called “at the bar” just with bar cart ideas! This is definitely getting pinned! Have a great day!
Im new to this site and I have to say I need photos to get my interest! A list of address to click on just doesn’t do it. I’ve always seen photos of yours and was drawn to them but they just don’t drive uour site. B O R I N G.
Welcome to the StoneGable family!!!!! So glad you are here!
Hi Cindy, You may need to do a HARD REST on your computer. I recently had a small blog makeover and on some computers it caused a problem. So easy to do… When you are on my site click the COMMAND/CONTROL key + SHIFT key +R key! HOLD them down together and that should clear things up. StoneGable has TONS AND TONS of images… so when you do a HARD RESET you will get to see them.
Cindy…there are pictures galore in all of Yvonne’s posts including this one…maybe there is a computer glitch somewhere preventing you from seeing them.
I adore your bar cart..and great drink recipes as a bonus here today!!!…Love both bar cart looks…must say I love that chic look!!!

The bar cart is beautiful….and I have one that I use. None of my family drinks alcohol so your recipes are going to get a work out this summer. I am always looking for non alcoholic recipes. You hit the spot today! I set my cart up in the sun room. I love all the colour on yours….colour makes such a difference. I really appreciate all the photos. They are very enticing. I am new here and am enjoying your ideas. Many Thanks.
I love your use of the round vases! The bar cart looks so fresh and ready for spring. I can’t wait to try it out.
I will be sitting on my patio having one of your tomorrow!
