With Christmas party season in full swing, it's time to get a little creative with the party menus and come up with a signature cocktail - or in this case, a signature mocktail - for your party guests! A friend of mine owns a catering business and came up with this amazingly simple Cranberry Spritzer Recipe for me to share with you all today!
I think it's important to always have non-alcoholic drink options available for your party guests. You really never know if your guests have struggled with alcoholism, if they don't drink due to religious reasons, or if they just don't want to drink because they don't have a designated driver.
Which reminds me...people, please don't go drinking and driving during the holidays. Seriously. Call a cab, call a friend, ask your host if you can crash on their couch. Don't ever be embarrassed to admit that you shouldn't be driving.
But back to these gorgeous Cranberry Spritzers! I think it's just so pretty and festive, and who doesn't love a drink that even the kids can enjoy at your party?
This simple, holiday beverage combines lemon-lime soda with cranberry juice and fresh citrus for a refreshing, nonalcoholic cocktail.
You can garnish each beverage with fresh cranberries to continue the holiday theme.
If you're looking for an alcoholic version of this Cranberry Seltzer Recipe, just use champagne in the place of your lemon-lime soda!
