I feel that at holiday gatherings, or any social gatherings, beverages play an important part. We might not think it does, but really, it does.

Because it’s always the drinks that we reach for first and often refill.

I’m not much of a consumer of alcohol. I don’t know how to appreciate wine, even though I wish I did. I love cocktails, as long as the taste of alcohol is at a minimum. But even with the minimal amount of alcohol, like a few sips, my cheeks turn bright red. Not something I want when I’m trying to enjoy my mimosa with my weekend brunch.

For those of you who feel the same way, or want a nonalcoholic drink, I’ve got the perfect holiday beverage for you.

So simple to make too.

Place water, sugar, fresh cranberries, and mint into a small pot to simmer until the cranberries burst. Allow the mixture to cool, then place a few spoonfuls into your sparkling water or club soda. Garnish with cranberries and mint. Then add crushed ice.

That’s it! Simple, right? And looks impressive too!
