I’ve been experimenting lately with what I think is a seriously tasty sparkling holiday drink that is perfect for holiday parties, Christmas Eve, and/or New Year’s Eve. I wanted a holiday cocktail that you could make a bit in advance and let the flavors infuse while chilling. Serve it up on a holiday platter with some holiday decorations and don’t forget to push those guests under the mistletoe. This Holly Berry Spritzer does just the trick to bring on the holiday cheer!
This Holly Berry Spritzer comes together quite easily. My inspiration came from another drink I usually make with lemons, silver rum or coconut rum, and sugar. Though it’s not that easy to see you smash the cranberries a little with sugar to help release a bit of the flavor into the spritzer. The DASANI mixed berry sparkling water adds the fizz to make it twinkle in your mouth. The rosemary brings the flavor of the season and pairs well with the cranberries.
These are just so fun to pull out of the fridge and place on a tray to serve up. Your guests will wow at this Holly Berry Spritzer. Most aren’t used to herbs unless it’s a Bloody Mary or a Mojito which have grown widely popular.
This spritzer is also very versatile which means you can use rum, coconut rum, vodka, or gin in to. Here I used silver rum. It simple without a strong taste allowing the cranberries and rosemary to flavor the spritzer.
DASANI Sparkling Water is available at Walmart and perfect for sparkling the holidays. Sparkling Flavors include: Lime, Berry, Lemon, Black Cherry in 12 pack of 12 oz cans. With zero calories, unsweetened, zero artificial colors, and it’s caffeine-free its sure to satisfy your guests. Oh and would you like more cocktail and mocktail recipes?
