You’ll be making spirits bright with this Sparkling Cherry Cosmopolitan Holiday Cocktail made with Cherry Limeade Sparkling ICE!

Overwhelmed. That doesn’t even begin to explain the way I’ve been feeling lately.  In case you need another reminder, Thanksgiving is now less than two weeks away and Christmas is not far behind!  I must admit that I’ve been feeling a bit “Bah Humbug” lately.  There’s a ton of work to finish, holiday shopping to be done, plans to be made, and that’s just this month alone.  

I’m trying not to let it all get to me.  I really do enjoy that warm and fuzzy feeling about the holiday season.  I look forward to stuffing my face at Thanksgiving, welcoming the holiday season by putting up my tree the next day, and spending December being as holly and jolly as possible.

Despite the stress of the approaching holidays, I know one thing’s for sure – everything that needs to get done will somehow get done in time.  There’s no reason to sit around and worry about it.

Make your holiday sparkle with this Sparkling Cherry Cosmopolitan Holiday Cocktail!

Here’s the thing – sometimes when we’re so caught up in all of the jolly holiday hustle and bustle, we tend to forget to take a moment for ourselves. And that’s when we lose our spark. So instead of letting your spark dim, let’s add a little sparkle this holiday season. Take a little time out to enjoy yourself.  If you like listening to holiday tunes, turn on the tunes.  If you like baking cookies, bake those cookies.  I won’t even tell you to share them!

For me, nothing makes me feel more peaceful than sitting by the light of the Christmas tree, enjoying the quiet of a cold night, and pouring myself a festive holiday drink.  I think I’ve already found my signature holiday cocktail for this year – this Sparkling Cherry Cosmopolitan Holiday Cocktail.  This isn’t your average Cosmo.  I turned that fabulous pink drink into a festive red and green cocktail.

Cut calories and sugar when you use Sparkling Ice in your holiday cocktails!

Traditional Cosmos are made with cranberry juice, lime, Triple Sec (or other orange liqueur), and vodka.  It’s the holidays, guys.  Let’s cut corners where we can.  I already drink Sparkling Ice on the daily.  But did you know that it makes a fantastic cocktail, too?

This cocktail is made with Cherry Limeade Sparkling Ice.  Not only does it give this cocktail a great flavor and gorgeous red color, it has zero sugar, zero calories, and it’s packed with vitamins and antioxidants.  I’ll definitely raise a glass to that!

This sparkling holiday cocktail is full of fun, fizzy flavor.  I love the cherry twist and that pop of lime!  Plus, it’s nice to have a cocktail that’s low calorie and low sugar.  Especially when I’ll definitely be stealing a few Christmas cookies from the baking tray before storing them in tins!  Can you really blame me?

When the holiday rush gets you down, remember to take some time for yourself.  Turn on your favorite holiday movie, put on some comfy clothes, and shake up a Sparkling Cherry Cosmopolitan!
