{Giveaway} Warm Berry Cider & Mistletoe Cocktail Recipes!

berry cider

Tis the season for cranberry cocktails (and mocktails)! Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash makes a fitting accompaniment to holiday sips (and it’s made with real sugar). It’s just the perfect amount of cranberry flavor and fizz. I made their Warm Berry Cider recipe and then I made my own “Mistletoe Cocktail” below! Try out one or both with your family and friends this holiday season or serve up one of these as your “signature cockail” for a Christmas party! Don’t forget to enter to win a fabulous prize pack from Sierra Mist below, yay!

P.S. I get a lot of questions about what camera I shoot with, by the way, so I thought I’d share that here: Canon Rebel and these shots were taken with the Canon 50mm f1.4 lens. I really have no idea what I’m doing with photography but I enjoy trying to learn so I do hope ya’ll like the photos you see here. I had fun with these!

Without further ado, here is Warm Berry Cider! Perfect for sipping while watching Charlie Brown Christmas, if you ask me!

Berry Cider Holiday Drink Recipe

Make your berry cider extra cute by adding a simple “tag” if serving them up for a party! Just print off “berry cider”, cut (I used a little shape cutter, and tie on.

Warm Berry Cider


  • 1 cup Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 6 fresh cranberries
  • 1 lime wedge


  1. In a small pot, bring the cranberry splash and thyme up to a simmer.
  2. Pour over the cranberries in a mug.
  3. Squeeze the fresh lime wedge into the drink.
  4. Serve warm.


Now, you know you have the best job in the world when it involves cocktail creation. I pulled out all my cocktail ingredients and started mixing and matching to concoct this Mistletoe Kiss Cocktail.I served it up in cute milk glass bottles (because really, isn’t everything cuter in those?) and added on some simple green ribbon. I have to say,they’re delish. I’ll definitely sip these while watching holiday movies this weekend.
