What I love most about this Cranberry Fizz Mocktail is that it looks so festive and perfect for the holidays. It’s the perfect non-alcoholic drink to serve at your holiday celebrations.

Non-Alcoholic Holiday Drink

Celebrating the holidays is different for everyone, I get that, but being the only one at a party that isn’t drinking can sometimes be difficult. Not because you’re the odd man out, but because there really isn’t anything to drink. Unless, of course, you’re fine with water.

Everyone loves surprises, and thankfully the holidays are full of them. When everyone comes together under my roof, I want them to be comfortable while they’re here.

This holiday season I partnered with Kroger and Coca-Cola® to create a delicious holiday mocktail. Coca-Cola® and Kroger made it so easy for me to find all that I needed to make this Cranberry Fizz Mocktail recipe. However you holiday, start with Coca-Cola® and Kroger, and discover more of the little things that make your party brighter, one merry moment at a time.

When creating this recipe I decided to keep it to a single serving of Cranberry Fizz Mocktail. But the great thing is, is that if you need to make multiple servings, it’s just as easy as making one. Just watch your measurements because you may need more sugar and lime if you’re making a large amount of servings.

Since it’s the merriest time of the year, that means that one of our favorite sodas is back on the shelf – Sprite® Cranberry. This Cranberry Fizz Mocktail is the perfect way to put it use during all your holiday celebrations.

To make a Cranberry Fizz Mocktail you’ll start by pouring sugar into a shallow dish (a small plate works great). Rub half a lime around the rim of a glass and make sure it’s nice and wet, but not dripping. Then, dip the rim of the glass into the shallow dish with sugar to coat the rim.

Next, add 3 to 4 large pieces of ice into the glass, making sure not to rub off the sugar around the rim. Then, carefully pour the cranberry juice into the glass without getting it on the sugar-coated rim.

After that, pour the Sprite® Cranberry into the glass and watch it fizz. My kids absolutely love this part.

And finally, squeeze a little lime juice over the top and mix. If you want, you can garnish the Cranberry Fizz Mocktail with a food pick lined with sugared cranberries.

Cranberry Fizz Mocktail Recipe

Cranberry Fizz Mocktail

Yield: 1
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 2 minutes

Ingredients

  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 100% cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup Sprite® Cranberry
  • sugared cranberries, for garnish (optional)
  • food picks, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pour sugar into a shallow dish (a small plate works great). Rub a lime around the rim of a glass. Dip the rim of the glass into the shallow dish with sugar to coat the rim.
  2. Next, fill the glass with about 3-4 pieces of large ice.
  3. Then, carefully pour the cranberry juice into the glass without getting it on the sugar-coated rim.
  4. After that, pour the Sprite Cranberry into the glass and watch it fizz. My kids love this part.
  5. Squeeze a little lime juice over the top and mix.
  6. Garnish with a food pick lined with sugared cranberries.

Notes

Cranberry juice is really tart. I found that 1/2 cup of Sprite® Cranberry really helped tone down the tartness of the cranberry juice. If you like the tartness of cranberry, you can lower the amount of Sprite® Cranberry to 1/3 cup.

It’s the merriest berriest time of the year, which means Sprite® Cranberry is back on the shelves! I always pick up a couple of bottles for the family because they love the sweet-tart flavor! It’s also great mix-in for other beverages for simple mix-and-match punches and mocktails.
