The holidays are here, and that means time for entertaining. Entertaining means having fun cocktails around. Well, at least I think it should mean that. I have been to plenty of get-togethers where the cooler full of beer is in one corner, and there is a random bottle of wine or two that someone else brought as a hostess gift. You know what I am talking about, right? Or is that just something that happens in the Mid-West? Time to put an end to that, and up your game with cranberry punch!

Let’s keep this short and sweet today.  I have a fun cocktail for you.  It is perfect for your holiday get together, New Years Eve, or just because you have some cranberries lying around.  Vodka and Cranberry is a very classic drink, I just added some fizz.  I have a thing about fizz.  For some reason, I think that cocktails need to have fizz in them!  Call me crazy, or call me genius – just make this drink.

Oh, and I have an awesome giveaway for you today too!

Cranberry Fizz #SundaySupper

Yum

This theme and post was planned well before all the events that unfolded on Friday.  #SundaySupper’s mission is to bring families together each week.  It is unbelievable what happened, and that these families can no longer be together.

Today, Connie from The Foodie Army Wife is hosting our #SundaySupper holiday party.  We are sharing our favorite appetizer and drink recipes with you, just in time for your holiday get togethers.

I made this festive, and fun drink to share.  When I was out with a friend recently, who ordered a Vodka and Cranberry with extra lime.  This got me thinking about making a citus-y version at home.  While at the store I saw Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, and I knew I had to use it.  I love a drink that has lots of fizz, so this was perfect!

What goes best with cranberry?  Orange!  I learned that last year when I made Cranberry Bread.  So I decided to add some fresh squeezed orange juice, vodka, and a little bit of lime to this.  I garnished with fresh cranberries, and it was perfectly fruity, and tart, and slightly sweet.  Great for sipping on, while mingling with friends.

This drink is also being shared as part of the Shine Supper Club
