Expert Tips

Want to turn this into a cranberry pomegranate cocktail? Add vodka! For those who’d like to kick things up a notch, add 1-2oz of vodka to this mocktail recipe to turn this into a cocktail.

Want to make this a refined sugar free mocktail? Select a lemon-lime soda that fits this requirement. While I usually make my mocktail recipes with Sprite or 7up (because I can buy them in mini-cans), there are several brands that make sugar-free sodas too! My go-to sugar-free soda is Zevia, which I can find readily at my local grocery store.
