Holiday Cranberry Mocktail
This December, I am gearing up for the Holidays with this delicious fizzy Holiday Cranberry Mocktail. It’s sweet, tangy, festive, and definitely aromatic.
Since it’s alcohol-free, it can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike! Just make a big pitcher, fill it with the mocktail and you’re ready to party.
I start out by making a cranberry rosemary syrup which is the base for the drink. Then I add some cranberry juice and a fizzy lemon drink. It’s that easy!
For me, cranberries are essential when celebrating the Holidays. I just love the tangy flavors and beautiful ruby color.
When you cook it with some water and sugar they pop and turn out creamy with an intensified flavor. The rosemary complements the tanginess perfectly and gives off a festive aroma.
You can make this Holiday Cranberry Mocktail in advance and just add the fizzy drink just before serving.
I love garnishing the rim of the glasses with some sugar for a festive look. My little girls were super happy helping me with this step and then adding the cranberries into the rosemary.
I used Dasani Sparkling Water in lemon flavor because it has zero calories, no added colors, is caffeine-free and naturally flavored. Plus I love its fizziness!
Chill them in the fridge for a few hours before adding it into your mocktail. They are also available in lime, black cherry, and berry.
As many of you know, my family and my husband’s relatives all live in Venezuela. We are very excited that next week most of them will be traveling here to spend the Holidays with us.
This Holiday Cranberry Mocktail will be definitely on my menu for a few of those parties and get together’s.
