Thanksgiving Non-Alcoholic Drinks

I'm planning a Thanksgiving meal, for some american friends, when they come over for a friends wedding. Yes I know I'm abit early, but I'd rather try anything I'm planning, so I know what I'm doing come the time.

So what non-alcoholic cocktail drinks do you serve on the day?

As we may have kids present. I think for alcoholic drinks I'm gonna delegate as I don't drink, plus my BIL is a wine connasiour.

Without a doubt, we'll have the standard type drinks. But was wondering about 'special' drinks. So that the kids don't feel left out. I know from my own christmas dinners, that the kids can complain about not being given the same as the adults.

Shirley Temples (7-Up and grenadine or marachino cherry juice) garnished with a cherry and orange slice, and Roy Rogers (same thing, only with cola) are old time kiddy cocktails.

Sparkling apple juice IS special if you serve it in a Champagne glass.

This is the one we serve. Both kids and adults seem to like it:

I think I need to put some plastic glasses on the shopping list. Luckily most supermarkets here, will have their christmas ranges in, and there's always plastic type flutes.
