Holiday Parties and Sierra Mist Mocktails and Cocktails

This holiday season has already been packed with parties.  Whether it’s a Cookie Exchange, Ugly Sweater party or Holiday Brunch, I’m always on the lookout for fun and delicious recipes. I recently attended a party and brought my petite spinach and cream cheese quiche.  I also made Sierra Mist Natural Mocktails.

My favorite thing about the mocktails, other than the fact that they’re delicious, is that they’re made with real sugar, not artificial ingredients, 100% natural flavoring.  That’s a big deal to me.  I didn’t even know Sierra Mist sold an all natural version of their pop!

The mocktails are so light and elegant and I love that they have non-alcoholic recipe options. They were so easy to make that I’ll be making them again for our Christmas breakfast.  They will be the perfect addition to our table that morning.

Sierra Mist has recently partnered with bloggers to promote their cocktail/mocktail recipes for holiday entertaining.  For more great Sierra Mist Mocktail and Cocktail tips, check out these great blogs:
