Cranberry Cosmo with 7UP
When it comes to getting together with friends and family during the holiday season, we always have a fun and festive cocktail. Our favorite mixer is 7UP. It’s the perfect mixer with it’s clean, crisp taste, no caffeine and has no artificial flavors.
Our signature cocktail this Christmas is a Cranberry Cosmo.
On Thanksgiving, I had some how made my cranberry sauce wrong. While it wasn’t good for dinner, it was great as a simple syrup for our cocktails.
