I’m hosting this year’s Christmas Dinner at my house and I wanted to come up with a fun and festive drink to serve my guests. I wanted something that is easy, inexpensive and can double as a cocktail for those who drink and a mocktail for those who don’t. I love 7UP® so I knew I wanted to incorporate that into my drink. I also wanted something refreshing and delicious and so this Merry Cranberry Cocktail was born.
While I was out finishing some last minute Christmas shopping at Walmart, I made sure to pick up everything I needed to make this delicious recipe. Thankfully it’s simple so all I needed was a few bottles of 7UP®, cranberry juice and a bag of cranberries.
I love a pretty drink. So I went a step ahead and added a sugar rim to the glasses I was going to use. Decorating glasses with a sugar rim is really easy to do and it looks so pretty. You’ll need some corn syrup, colored sugar and glasses. Once your glasses are sugared you can make the drink.
Step 1: Take a skewer and add cranberries to it for decoration. Make as many as you’ll need ahead of time.
Step 2: Fill half of glass with 7UP®
Step 3: Fill the remaining half with cranberry juice
Sept 4: Add a dash of coconut rum and top with a cranberry stirrer for garnishment and serve.
If you want to make this a Mocktail just leave out the coconut rum. It’s still delicious and looks fabulous!
