Go ahead and have a cocktail at your holiday soiree. We found a little something that may make our waistlines a smidge happier this season (hint: sparkling water) and something that will spice up your festive drinks! Meet your new favorite guilt-free holiday cocktails.
The first comes from Cascade Ice, a sugar- and calorie-free sparkling water that takes out the heavy mixers without losing bursts of flavor. After being taste-tested and approved by our own staffers (we couldn’t give you a good recommendation without trying it for ourselves, right?), we were quick to grab a few festive recipes from the company. Try one (or all!) and feel free to indulge without worrying about tossing in an extra-intense run as part of your next workout.
The second just might establish your holiday party as one of the best – something we’re all striving for, right? New for this holiday season comes a limited-edition cognac from the House of Marnier-Lapostolle: Grand Marnier Cherry. Impress your guests with these easy-to-make recipes.
Passion Pucker-Up Cocktail
- 1.5 oz tequila
- 3 oz Cascade Ice Raspberry Black Currant
- Juice of 1 lime wedge
- Handful of raspberries
- Orange wedge, for garnish
Place tequila and sparkling water into a blender over crushed ice. Add juice from a lemon wedge and a handful of raspberries mix and blend until smooth. Garnish with orange wedge and serve.
