During the Holiday season, my family loves to have friends and family over. Not only is it fun to enjoy all the yummy Holiday goodies, but it is also fun creating yummy drinks/cocktails to serve. This year, after playing around with a few variations of certain favorite drinks, this Cranberry Spritzer came about and has been quite the hit. My mom was the one who tweaked it to perfection, and it is light tasting, the perfect drink to enjoy before a meal, and simple to make.
The key to this drink is to use Canada Dry. Why?? Because Canada Dry is made from real ginger, giving the drinks a real taste, and not artificial. I love to keep Canada Dry in the house since it is great to sip on, create cocktails with, as well as help calm tummies that aren’t feeling too well. I buy Canada Dry at Safeway, the local grocery store, and its quite affordable. Did you know you can purchase it online at Safeway.com?? That makes it even easier, right? Safeway is my one stop shop for all groceries, beverages, favorite brands, and more!
If you are having family/friends over this Holiday season and need a cocktail to serve, look no further. This Cranberry Spritzer will be a hit. You can even spruce up the drink by taking cranberries and freezing them in an ice cube tray prior to making drink. This will dress up the drink and make things more festive!!
