How to Make a Cranberry Mocktail 

This recipe makes it easy to celebrate this holiday season with festive drinks for the whole family! Cranberry juice, ginger ale, orange juice, and a brilliant seasonal garnish are all you need to make these sparkling mocktails. 

You can easily personalize the recipe for a signature mocktail that becomes a holiday staple for your family. Top your winter spritzers with a handful of fresh cranberries, a refreshing sprig of mint, or even a slice of tangy citrus! 

However you decide to dress up your holiday drinks, the first step is to fill the glass with ice. Crushed ice works best. Don’t run to the nearest gas station or grocery store to buy a bag of crushed ice when you can make it easily at home! Silicone ice molds make it easy to upscale any iced beverage, from a morning cup of coffee to a fizzy cranberry mocktail.

The next step is to add the orange juice, pouring it until the glass is around ¾ full. You can use any brand or concentration of orange juice, though we recommend minimal pulp. 

Then, finish the drink by adding the ginger ale. Fill the glass the rest of the way with the ginger ale, which should only be about ¼ of the total volume. If you are feeling extra adventurous, it may be fun to reach for a flavored ginger ale for this fruity mocktail, such as raspberry or even cranberry!
