Orange Cranberry Spritzer – deliciously refreshing mocktail with Schweppes® Ginger Ale that’s just as fancy as any cocktail.
As you plan your holiday menu this season, don’t forget about your non-drinking friends.
Even if you’re planning a (kid-free) cocktail party, it’s a good idea to prepare some non-alcoholic options for those who choose not to drink booze. After all, it’s a good etiquette to be thoughtful and considerate host.
And who says non-alcoholic drinks should be boring? Forget about plain sparkling water or juices. Make this big batch of alcohol-free orange cranberry spritzer for your party this holiday season, which is nothing but a crowd-pleaser!
Your guests will love the refreshingly sweet and sour flavors of this non-alcoholic spritzer. And no one will even know that this simple drink called for only 3 ingredients!
It’s true, just 3 main ingredients:
- 100% cranberry juice
- pulp-free orange juice (I use freshly squeezed, but it doesn’t matter)
- Schweppes Ginger Ale
When preparing for a party, go for the large 2L bottle of Schweppes Ginger Ale. You can find it in the soda aisle at any Walmart store. And while at it, get all of your party needs with one stop.
Ok, back to the spritzer… Though I’ve included the amounts for each ingredient, you can play around and adjust the amounts to your own liking.
Or better yet, how about let your guests make their own drinks?
It’s quite a simple drink to make for sure, but boy, is it tasty!!
And why dilute the perfectly perfect drink with loads of ice when you can use frozen cranberries to keep the drink cold? Genius, right?
Plus, don’t they add that special festive touch? I just love it! Hope you do too!
Yeah, this non-alcoholic spritzer doesn’t disappoint. Keep your non-drinking guests and/or children happy and hydrated with this stunning mocktail.
Is this spritzer only good for parties then?
No, not at all!!
I actually enjoy this drink quite often. Pretty much year round. You see, whenever I crave something sparkling, a variation of this drink hits the spot just right.
Because two things you can always find in my fridge: 100% cranberry juice and a few cans of Schweppes Ginger Ale. (Yes, I’m truly a fan girl, and I still can’t believe I partner with my favorite brand. Pinch me!)
And sometimes, I just mix the two in different proportions. Sometimes, I mix in a 3rd flavor, like orange juice. I mean how can you go wrong with cranberry and orange, right? Such a classic combination!
No special occasion is necessary when it comes to enjoying a good drink. And, head here for additional inspiration for using Schweppes to create delicious, sparkling cocktails, mocktails, and more!
