There’s no denying that the holidays are the ultimate excuse to breakout the most festive of accoutrements. That applies to everything from the tinsel dripped along the fireplace mantel, to 20-something sparkly mini Christmas tree’s intentionally placed across your windowsill. The month of December is all about the cozy, warm, indulgent feeling that only comes around once a year and all you can do is embrace it as much as possible. And, that applies to everything around your home, to what’s in your fridge. And, in my opinion, the best part of the season is what you find in your fridge — and in your liquor cabinet. It’s the stuff that you gather around. It’s what your family comes together for.
This year, my husband and I are expecting our first child, so the liquor cabinet will remain closed this year – at least for me. But, that doesn’t mean I still cant indulge in a mocktail or two to sip by the fire while eating my favorite cookies. Which is why I created this cozy, indulgent mocktail recipe that can certainly be enjoyed with or without alcohol.
This mocktail recipe contains ingredients that are easy to get a hold of:
- Pomegranate seeds
- cranberry juice
- ginger ale
- coconut water
This is definitely an excuse to get out those gorgeous rocks glasses you bought that are collecting dust. Polish them off, grab your ice shaker, and make these for the fam (or for yourself!). If you’re looking to invest in new glasses, I added a few of my favorites below.
