From Copycat Recipe Guide
Cooks who enjoy making drink recipes can find a concoction to suit just about any occasion. There are coffee-based drinks to serve along with breakfast, smoothies and shakes for desserts, sweetened drinks for kids, and cocktails to enjoy during "happy hour" in the evening. At world-famous restaurant chains such as T.G.I. Friday's and Applebee's, patrons can order a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks at the bar. These drink recipes include classic cocktails and original mixes.

Non-Alcoholic Drink Recipes
Non-alcoholic drinks, often called "virgin" drinks, may include sodas, teas, coffees, milkshakes, and smoothies. The coffeehouse chain Starbucks features many different coffee blended drinks that home cooks can duplicate. One such drink is the Iced Caramel Macchiato, which includes espresso, vanilla syrup, and cold milk. Another cold Starbucks drink is the Iced Vanilla Latte.
Smoothies and milkshakes are also popular drink recipes for home cooks. For a fruity taste, cooks may want to prepare a McDonald's Smoothie. This drink contains blended fresh fruit, yogurt, honey, and ice for a smooth, healthy dessert. For ice cream lovers, learning how to make a Red Robin Gingerbread Milkshake can be a sweet treat during hot weather.
Alcoholic Drink Recipes
Adults who enjoy cocktails can prepare alcoholic drinks just like the ones they can get from T.G.I. Friday's, Chili's, or Applebee's. At T.G.I. Friday's, for example, guests can order several classic cocktails such as the Cape Codder, the Cosmpolitan, or the Bloody Mary. All of these drinks can be prepared at home with a few ingredients. Exotic drinks such as Twisted Lemonade and Espresso Martini can also be duplicated with the use of store-bought liquors and drink mixes. Home cooks can even learn how to make their own lime mix and sour mix for use in margaritas.
Guests who would rather not drink alcohol can prepare almost any of these recipes without alcohol by substituting white grape juice, club soda, or ginger ale in place of the liquor.
