This non-alcoholic cocktail is not too sweet and festive enough to make any occasion feel special. Use pretty glasses to enhance the effect.
The drink itself is easy as pie: just mix sour cherry juice and ginger ale, equal parts, in each serving glass. The “special” part is in the garnishes.
Fruit Swizzlers: Alternate a fresh cranberry with a citrus slice on a wooden skewer. If you’re using half-slices of citrus, try pushing the skewer through the first quarter, then add a cranberry, followed by the second half of the citrus slice so it wraps around the cranberry.
Cranberry Cubes: Drop a cranberry and a quarter slice of citrus into each compartment of an ice cube tray. Fill with water and freeze; add a couple to each glass before you pour in the juice and ginger ale.
Spice Sticks: Add an extra-long cinnamon stick to each glass just before serving.
