‘Tis the Season for Mocktails {Giveaway}

It’s time to get our entertaining on with some lovely mocktails for the holidays!

You see, soda is not one of my favorite things, mainly because I just drink water (and too much coffee, but that’s another story). But, when I splurge on a soda, I want to splurge on something that I believe in, specifically the ingredients. Since Sierra Mist is made with real sugar and no weird stuff, I choose that. Every year, for a short time during the holiday season, Sierra Mist sells their Cranberry Splash drink. It’s so good!

When I saw the recipes that Sierra Mist had using their Cranberry Splash drink, I was immediately intrigued by this warm drink! You heat up soda? What?!?

All I can say is it’s amazing! I never would have thought to heat it up, but I can officially say that I’ve bought two liters of Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash and am going to make this warm cider for our holiday parties this year!

Sierra Mist has more recipes on their facebook page.

Warm Berry Cider

from Sierra Mist


  • 1 cup Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 6 fresh cranberries
  • 1 lime wedge


  1. In a small pot, bring the cranberry splash and thyme up to a simmer.
  2. Pour over the cranberries in a mug.
  3. Squeeze the fresh lime wedge into the drink.
  4. Serve warm.

Now that we’ve warmed up with the cider, I’ve whipped up a quick and refreshing, antioxidant-like drink. Thank you my new friend, Pomegranate!

I’ve always liked the taste of pomegranate juice, but I’ve always been afraid of eating the seeds for some reason. The seeds are my new favorite thing! The add a lovely burst of flavor in every sip of this drink, but also are lovely in a simple salad!

Anyway. Last year, we had fun with a Frost Bite, a Meet-me-at-the-Mist-letoe and sangria-like mocktails and I’m so glad we’re trying more delicious drinks using Sierra Mist!


Well, are you ready to try your chance at a Sierra Mist holiday entertaining pack?

  1. Love going to church on Christmas Eve, then letting the little ones open a couple of small gifts. The rest of the family comes on Christmas Day, open presents, eat and just spend time together. The best day of the year!

  2. My favorite tradition is celebrating at my Great-Grandma’s house, and we’ll be doing just that on Monday night! All of my grandparents, aunts and uncles, and (many) cousins are there–we read the Bible (Christmas story), eat a delicious food, share what we’re thankful for, pray together, and open gifts. It’s perfect, no matter how loud and crazy everyone gets 🙂

  3. I always get my dad a Hillshire Farms style snack sampler for his Christmas Eve birthday, then we get to eat it all Christmas morning. 🙂

  4. Favorite tradition is hiding our Elf on the Shelf in a different location each night, and looking at the reactions on the kids’ faces each morning as they find him. It’s especially funny when he’s being naughty and makes a mess!

  5. There is a new tradition I would like to start in our home this Christmas. That would be to save one present to open right before going to bed on Christmas night.

  6. My favorite tradition is to take a vacation day in December, get up at normal time (versus sleeping in) and spend all day baking.

  7. My favorite tradition is baking with my kids. We did this a lot more when they were younger, but now that they’re grown, they still come ver to bake with Mom. 🙂
