Recipe Box {Happy Hour Version}: Holiday Cranberry Spritzer

This mocktail {or cocktail, if you feel so inclined} is like the holidays in a glass. Thanksgiving and Christmas {and everything delightfully whimsical in between} make us so happy and bring back the best memories of a cozy season spent with family and friends celebrating what we’re grateful for. And yes, we can’t get enough of decorating, holiday movies and the spirit of the season! So when we felt the need to whip up some new drink we envisioned the holidays in a glass: you know, cranberries with a dusting of sugar, oranges reminiscent of pomanders studded with cloves, and a dose of fizzy goodness. We hope our Holiday Cranberry Spritzer makes its way onto your holiday party bar cart! Really, we do!

2 parts fresh cranberry juice | 3 sugared cranberries {see our recipe here} | orange zest | 1 part sparkling water OR 1 part Prosecco for the alcoholic version

Prepare the sugared cranberries per our instructions and lay in a champagne flute. Pour cranberry juice on top and top with sparkling water or Prosecco. Garnish with orange zest and let sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
