Here’s a holiday beverage that’s non-alcoholic, fun, even good for you.

For those who don’t drink alcohol, or don’t want any more of it at the moment, this flavorful mocktail hits the spot.

You can use either cranberry or pomegranate juice; we think pomegranate juice is more special given the seasonal cranberry overload.

  • Pomegranate juice contains higher levels of antioxidants than most other fruit juices. It also has three times more antioxidants than red wine and green tea [source].
  • While cranberry juice is also high in antioxidants, pomegranate juice is by far the best of any juice because it contains the highest levels of nearly every antioxidant [source].

    You can give guests an option for a short or tall drink. If you only want to serve drinks in rocks glasses, you don’t need straws.
