EANABs & Mocktails

Equally Attractive Non-Alcoholic Beverages

At Stanford, we love our acronyms. The term “Equally Attractive Non-Alcoholic Beverage” (or EANAB) was coined at Stanford to describe non-alcoholic drink options. EANABS are required at all Stanford parties, and can be more commonly referred to as “mocktails."

Urbandictionary.com defines an Equally Attractive Non-Alcoholic Beverage as an attractive and enjoyable beverage on par with the alcoholic beverages being served and may be substituted without the drinker feeling left out of the celebration. EANABs are required for parties on many college campuses.

Here you will find some great recipes to make these beverages equally (if not more) attractive thanks to our friends at allrecipes.com and Annie Shields '13, who selected our first round!  Of course, don’t forget about the standards: Martinelli's, Chocolate Milk, Chocolate Almond Milk, Juices, etc. mix and match and be creative!
