Making delicious cocktails that can effortlessly transform into mocktails with out tasting completely different isn’t a small task. It can be hard to find delicious, slightly complex flavors that dont fade when removing alcohol without making the drink syrupy sweet. This Cranberry Apple Sparklers Cocktail and Mocktail recipe is a delicious drink that is perfect for the holidays- whether with alcohol or not.
This drink has a lovely rich color from the addition of apple cider and orange juice, as well as a splash of ginger soda (NOT ginger ale- we’re going for a subtle flavor that isnt overwhelming and isn’t very sweet- I use the Dry Soda brand which is spectacular) which helps it bubble and sparkle.
These drinks are so fun and pretty- they are perfect for holiday parties, around the Thanksgiving table- or even set out for Santa instead of milk. The mocktail recipe is fantastic for winter baby showers, too!
