Holiday Mojito Mocktail with Cranberry and Pomegranate
We are already days into December! Can you believe it? By now your calendar is most certainly filling up with parties and Santa visits and family outings (I know mine is!), and your grocery list is probably stacked with all sorts of ingredients for festive treats for get-togethers (ya, mine is busting at the seams. I don’t want any of my Christmas cookie recipes to feel left out! I do it for the cookies).
For me, it’s the food along with the people I share it with that makes the perfect holiday moment, so today I am sharing the most gorgeous, delicious, and festive holiday mocktail to make your holiday times together with friends and family even more special. It is a wonderful mix of ginger ale, pomegranates, cranberries, mint, and a twist of lime. You’re going to love it.
How to make a Holiday Mojito Mocktail
This Holiday Mojito Mocktail with Cranberry and Pomegrate recipe comes together so easily!
First, dip the glasses rims in water and then sugar sprinkles well before serving them so that the sugar has time to dry to the glass.
After cooking up a quick cranberry reduction sauce, muddle mint and lime together in each glass. Add ice, ginger ale, pomegranate juice, and cranberry reduction. That’s it!
Add mint and lime for garnish before serving.
Isn’t this mocktail gorgeous? And it is beyond delicious! The colors are so perfect for a festive holiday gathering, and the flavors are out of this world!

- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 ounces pomegranate juice
- 1-2 cans Canada Dry®
