The holidays can be a stressful time of year but they can definitely be merrier if we take the time to relax and let ourselves fully experience the joys of the season. Planning ahead so we aren’t in a rush last minute is a great way to keep from feeling overwhelmed. Pick up the ingredients to make this Holiday Sparkler cocktail so you can add some sparkle into the holiday season any time the mood strikes! Whether you are coming home from a jam packed day of shopping or entertaining guests, this holiday drink is sure to add an extra fizzy twist to your evening.
Just three ingredients are required to enjoy this holiday cocktail. A key ingredient is Black Raspberry Sparkling Ice. It packs a punch of flavor and gives you the fizz you love without all the calories.
For my sparkling cocktail, I went all out with garnishes because why not? My drink deserves it and so do I. I spread a thin layer of corn syrup around the outside rim of my glass so I could add some fun gold confetti sprinkles. (Just do not get them wet or the gold will start to bleed.)
Add some ice to your glass and pour on the pineapple juice, Black Raspberry Sparkling Ice then vodka if you want to keep separation between the layers.
Add a gold straw and top with your favorite holiday garnishes for some instant holiday cheer! And if a mocktail is what you are after, simply skip the vodka and replace it with more pineapple juice and Black Raspberry Sparkling Ice.
