Clove and Cinnamon Cranberry Mocktail

Clove and Cinnamon Infused Cranberry Mocktail

Your Holiday party must have fun drinks!

This delightful beverage is a delicious way to celebrate the holiday season.

Here, the classic flavor combination of cranberry, orange, and cinnamon is complemented by the unexpected addition of clove.

You could add a splash of vodka but we love it just the way it is so the kids can enjoy as well.

Holiday Clove and Cinnamon Cranberry Mocktail

I love that this drink is sweetened with honey and has bright citrus and cranberry flavors. 

It’s perfect for those holiday parties or just having a group of friends over for the night.

The rosemary garnish really brightens up the whole room.

You could even cook a larger batch and put it in a beautiful drink dispenser if you had a larger crowd.

We love to use these heavy base cocktail glasses for our holiday drinks but you could easily use what you have on hand.

The Cinnamon and Clove Cranberry Mocktail pairs perfectly with a Simple Charcuterie Board for an appetizer.
