Cranberry/Pomegranate New Year’s Eve Cocktail or Mocktail

Every year, we gather at our home to welcome the new year and celebrate Bella’s birthday.  There was a time when she thought the world gathered to wish her a happy birthday, but nowadays, she understands the meaning of new year’s eve and enjoys the count down to midnight.  

I wanted to share a new year’s eve cocktail or 
mocktail that will help you welcome the new year.

The two winter fruits – the cranberry and 
pomegranate – are the stars of this drink.

Ingredients for cocktail:
1/4 cup vodka or vanilla vodka
1/4 cup champagne or sparkling wine
pomegranate seeded
1/4 cup of pomegranate juice
1/4 of cranberry juice 

- combine vodka, cranberry, pomegranate juice and pomegranate seeds and allow to chill
- when ready to serve, place mixture in glass and top with 1/4 champagne or sparkling wine
- if mixture needs chilling, add ice and stir
- garnish with cranberry skewer 
Ingredients for mocktail:
1/4 cup of Soda water or Sprite
pomegranate seeded
1/4 cup of pomegranate juice
1/2 cup of cranberry juice 

- combine soda water, cranberry and pomegranate juice along with pomegranate seeds and allow to chill
- serve and garnish with cranberry skewer


much love,

I would also like to say thank you to my sweet friend Jen from Rambling Renovators for including me in her GREAT READS line up this year.  Thanks Jen…you are an inspiration to many.
