With the holidays being so busy, sometimes it’s nice to have an easy go-to drink recipe. Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash comes once a year and I’ve tested one of their signature mocktails. It’s made with real sugar and nothing artificial, which is great! This mocktail is created with muddled raspberries and thyme, fresh brewed green tea and topped off with Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash. I also created my own skinny cocktail using Diet Sierra Mist, ginger vodka, lime and thyme. Sometimes you just need something that tastes good, but is light in calories! Diet Sierra Mist lemon lime goes well with ginger and the thyme adds a little sophistication ; ) This concoction was super tasty! Also, if you want to win some of the bar tools I used in these photos, like the photo on Instagram and I’ll pick a winner from there! An Insta-giveaway! Read more for the recipe and pictures…
