The Mocktail…EVERYONE’S Friend {Recipe}


I have to admit that I don’t partake in the traditional bubbly at the new year, but I am a MOCKTAIL lover!  As a child I grew up with a mom who was always concocting fun drinks for us girls.  You know, a girl cannot live on a Shirley Temple alone.  We called them Spritzers and she was always very creative. 

Jamie and I have come up with a few Spritzers for you as you ring in the New Year tomorrow.

White Grape Spritzer


  • 1 part White Grape Juice
  • 1 part Ginger Ale

This is a perfect bit of bubbly to toast the New Year and much cheaper that the sparkling cider alternative.

Cranberry Lime Spritzer


  • 1 part Cranberry Juice
  • 1 part Ginger Ale
  • A squeeze of lime

I am a lime lover so this is one of my favorites!

Blueberry Pomegranate Spritzer


  • 1 part Blueberry Pomegranate Juice
  • 2 parts Ginger Ale
  • Garnish with pomegranate seeds

The color with this one is stunning!

Sour Apple Spritzer


  • 1 part Sour Apple syrup
  • 3 parts Ginger Ale
  • Garnish with cherries

Huge fan of this one as well.  Who needs an Appletini  when you can have a Sour Apple Spritzer?

Now, don’t forget the details…


…add some fun embellishments to your stemware.  Ribbon, tulle, Divine Twine… get creative!  I also used my new Silhouette SD to etch my stemware and bottle. (Santa was very good to me this year!!)

    "Sour Apple imitation liqueur {I like the Pucker brand}"

    Where on earth do you get this? Could you use Green Apple Flavored Soda?

    b.r.i.l.l.i.a.n.t. Why didn't I see this post before New Years??? ;) My little family has 3 birthdays right in a row (jan, feb, mar)…I'll definitely be serving a few of these at the parties :) The Cranberry Lime & the Blueberry Pomegranate look divine!

    Thank you for the wonderful ideas! I just wanted to let you know that I made the blueberry pomegranate with the garnish and it was a hit. I do not drink alcohol but for my friends who do they loved it too they just added pomegranate vodka.
