Holiday Cocktail Recipe + Giveaway!

sierra-mist-cocktail-mocktail-recipe Serving 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!
