Holiday Mocktails and a Giveaway

When it comes to the holidays, there's always a need for plenty of festive beverages, so I've teamed up with Sierra Mist to create two holiday mocktails. Cranberry Splash, their special edition holiday drink, is their familiar lemon-lime soda made with real sugar, but with, you guessed it, a splash of cranberry added. I made two drinks, the first recipe is from Sierra Mist and the second is my own creation.

Winter Berry Splash

4 oz. Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash
2 oz. unsweetened brewed green tea, chilled
2 fresh raspberries
2 basil leaves

In a glass, muddle basil leaves and raspberries, then add to cocktail shaker filled with ice. Pour chilled green tea over ice and shake well. Strain into a glass and top with Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash. Serves one.

Holiday Splash Punch

4 oz. Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash
4 oz. sparkling apple cider
2 oz. pomegranate juice
frozen cranberries, optional

Combine Sierra Mist, sparkling cider and pomegranate juice. Pour into glasses. Add a few frozen cranberries to each drink. They serve as a garnish and help keep the drink chilly. Serves two.

Update: Francine of Beautiful, sweet life is the winner!
