      Colorful Mocktails: Prickly Pear Pink Champagne

      Colorful Mocktails: Prickly Pear Pink Champagne

      Spring has sprung but only on the calendar in the Northeast. Cold and rainy days lead to frigid nights with the occasional burst of warmth and sun. While it may be a few more weeks before the weather actually reflects the season, I've moved ahead with my budding bevy of beverages.

      To start things off, I give you a celebratory brunch booster - my Prickly Pear Pink Champagne. A friend from my taste tester group has already served this pretty-in-pink, slightly sweet, subtly tangy bubbler at a baby shower and it was a hit!

      Colorful Mocktails: Cranberry Pomegranate Martini

      Colorful Mocktails: Cranberry Pomegranate Martini

      This drink is the holiday season in a glass! I actually made this cocktail for the first time a few months ago when the weather was still warm and we were still sipping iced teas and lemonade. When I asked my taste testers to try it out, the comments I got back contained words like "festive", "christmas-y" and oddly, "ring the jingle bells".

      Cranberry Pomegranate Martini Ingredients

      When I had my first taste, I immediately felt transported into a warm family room filled with people I love chatting and laughing and waiting for the "big bird" to come out of the oven. While in reality, the group I'm hosting this year will be bigger than last, it still won't be the grand size of gatherings in the past as we continue to find our way in the ongoing pandemic.

       

       

      One thing that is for sure, I will be serving this delightful cocktail to my guests, both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions. It's the holiday thing to do.

      Try the recipe below and get into the spirit!

      Colorful Mocktails: Iced Pumpkin Cider

      'Tis the season for anything pumpkin! Spice lattes, jack 'o lanterns and pie all reign supreme during the Fall season and for good reason.

      Not only are they one of the most colorful vegetables available, they are rich in vitamins and minerals and full of flavor.

      Colorful Mocktails: Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea

      Colorful Mocktails: Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea

      Cocktail or beverage? I'll let you decide. My Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea is my last ditch effort to hold onto Summer for as long as possible.

      However there really is no reason why this drink can't work for Fall as well. Just substitute cold tea for hot. The flavors will still be refreshing and delicious!

      Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea

      The flavor of Blood Orange is similar to the orange fruit we know and love. But there's a layer of berry-ness that gives it a richness that is almost wine-like.

      Ginger is a fragrant spice with a slightly peppery undertones and a sweetness that is warm and zesty.

      I love citruses all year long and the richness of blood orange is smooth and satisfying, not at all tart and biting like some can be. The addition of ginger makes this drink extra special!

      Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea Ingredients

      This beverage is great for lunch, brunch or partytime. Or just when you need a liquid pick-me-up. 

      And with only 3 ingredients, you can whip up a pitcher in no time! 

      Watch my how-to video or follow the complete recipe below for all you need to add my Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea to your home bar drink list!
