This will be the first of a few Valentine’s Day related posts for those who are looking for something quick and easy yet special for the 14th of this month =). This beverage recipe is so simple that it’ll take you less than 5 minutes to make. Yet it looks amazing with the bright red color, perfect for Valentine’s Day.

You need only a handful of ingredients: one cup ginger ale soda, ½ cup cranberry apple juice (or cranberry juice), one tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon, a few mint leaves, and several ice cubes. That’s it. All you have to do is mix and place into a pretty glass or mason jar.

This drink tastes amazing. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have trouble drinking soda because it’s so bubbly. The carbonation is just too strong for me so I usually let my soda sit out for a bit before I can drink it. However, you won’t find that in this drink. Mixing ginger ale soda with cranberry juice, lemon, and ice take away some of the bubbly-ness.  If you let the soda sit for a bit, the mint flavor from the mint leaves will seep into the drink, giving a hint of mint. The lemon juice adds a slight sour yet refreshing taste to the drink, and the cranberry apple juice provides a slightly tart and a bright red color to the beverage. Combined together, it’s the perfect drink for Valentine’s Day with no alcohol.

Add 1 cup of ginger ale soda and ice to a glass or a mason jar.

    Cranberry lime and soda is my standard drink when I go out, because I don’t drink much alcohol. I will have to try this one at home. Plus thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

    Thanks for visiting KenMaursCorner ! Regards your Valentine drink, why not substitute “normal” soda water or even sparkling mineral water for your ginger ale soda? You could always add a dash of grated ginger if you want extra “bite”!
