Holiday Cocktail Recipe + Giveaway!

sierra-mist-cocktail-mocktail-recipeServing up fabulous cocktails and mocktails is a holiday tradition in my family. We like to get creative with the ingredients and concoct our own sweet creations. Sierra Mist asked me to whip up a delicious cocktail using their all-natural drink so take a look at the recipe I created (and I LOVE that their soda has no artificial flavors – it’s real sugar!).

SPARKLING APPLE MIST
I love the taste of apple at the holidays, and it pairs so well with the refreshing sparkle and lemon-lime of Sierra Mist!

3 ounces Sierra Mist Natural
2 ounces Apple Brandy
1 ounce Apple Cider (or apple juice)
green apple rimming sugar
green apple, for garnish

1. Rim a martini or cocktail glass in green apple rimming sugar.
2. In a shaker filled with ice, mix apple brandy and apple cider.
3. Shake and strain into rimmed cocktail glass.
4. Top with Sierra Mist Natural
5. Garnish with sliced green apple. Cheers!

    I am not very creative. I have only really tried vodka and orange juice. I need to explore more.

    This is an adaptation from my favorite mojito recipe. The addition of cranberries makes it perfect for this time of year. The amount of sugar in the simple syrup has been significantly reduced since Sierra Mist Natural will be replacing the soda water.

    Sierra Mist Natural Cranberry Mojito

    8oz fresh cranberries
    1/3 cup sugar
    1 cup water
    20 mint leaves
    1 lime
    4 oz light rum
    4 oz Sierra Mist Natural

    Put cranberries, sugar and water into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Lower the heat to medium low, and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat when cranberries start bursting. Strain the cranberries out after the syrup has cooled. (If you didn’t want to make your own syrup, you could replace it with Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash.)

    Put 10 mint leaves into a glass with the juice of half a lime and gently muddle. Fill each glass with ice, then add 2 oz each of the cranberry syrup and rum. Top with Sierra Mist Naturals and stir. Enjoy!
