Holiday Cocktails

These drinks are easy to make and very festive for Christmas!

For this drink, simply take pomegranate juice and mix to taste with either champagne, sparkling water, or a lemon-lime soda like Sprite or 7-Up.

This is another easy one...champagne with cranberries.

And my personal favorite Frozen Cranberry Margaritos! This is a twist on the mojito as you add tequila rather than rum. In the freezer section of the supermarket, pick up a tub of frozen mojito mix. Add 3/4 c. tequila, 1/4 c. whole berry cranberry sauce, 2 Tbs Triple Sec, and 2 Tbs lime juice. Mix in a blender with ice to the 5 cup level and garnish the drink with rosemary and cranberries. You can also rim the glasses with lime juice and a mix of salt & sugar.
