Growing up, I used to love ordering Shirley Temple drinks. I’d always ask for loads of cherries. Sometimes I would get three or four. Sometimes they would give me so many that I hardly had any of the actual drink left. I wanted to make a holiday-inspired version that I could share with my kids, so they can have some of these wonderful memories too.
My boys both enjoyed it as a special treat. We don’t usually allow them to have carbonated beverages, but the holidays are one time we make an exception in the name of fun non-alcoholic drinks.
Holiday Mocktail Recipe | Cherry Cranberry Cocktail
Make our adorable Christmas Wreath Drink Charms to add to your glasses of Cherry Cranberry Cocktail!
You can make this holiday beverage with maraschino cherry juice or grenadine. Grenadine will add a bit more flavor, but using some of the juice from the maraschino cherries will cost you less if you are only making a couple drinks.
Pour cranberry juice into your “fancy cup” of choice.
Add the cherry juice or grenadine.
Top off with white soda (I used 7UP).
Thread a whole cranberry, then a cherry, then another cranberry into the center of an appetizer toothpick. Place it in the glass of Cherry Cranberry Cocktail to garnish before serving!
Our Upcycled Christmas Wrapping Paper Tree is the perfect centerpiece for your holiday table or beverage area!
Use long appetizer toothpicks for the cranberries and cherries!
This holiday mocktail recipe is sure to be a hit. Serve it at Thanksgiving gatherings or your Christmas party or for your Valentine’s Day dinner or any other holiday events!
