For our family, the holidays are all about creating and trying new recipes. We especially love coming up with new drinks for Christmas or New Year’s Eve.
We are big fans of tasty mocktails, thanks to the surplus of soda shops where we live, but it’s fun to come up with our own creations too. For this holiday drink I grabbed Simply® Cranberry Cocktail and Simply® Orange from the refrigerated juice section at Smith’s (my favorite Kroger store), and headed to the bottled soda aisle for some Sprite® Cranberry Zero.
Cranberry-orange is such a classic holiday flavor combination and Simply® juices are our favorite because they taste pure and fruitful. Sprite® Cranberry was an obvious pairing to add a little extra tang and fizz to this fruity drink. Since it’s a holiday flavor, we definitely stock up while it’s available.
Cranberry Orange Mocktail
This cranberry orange mocktail is so light, crisp, and refreshing. It hits the spot without being too sweet, which makes it a great accompaniment for brunch or Christmas dinner. It’s like a non-alcoholic mimosa.
The ratios for this cranberry orange mocktail are about 1:1:1. One part cranberry juice, one part orange juice, and one part soda. Mix the (chilled) juices together first, then pour in the cold soda. We love our drinks with pebble ice and recommend it, if it’s available to you.
Every year we try and come up with a holiday bucket list, along with our new recipes to try. The goal is to finish it all by the end of December.
Coca-Cola and Kroger have all sorts of holiday inspiration in an advent calendar with great ideas for parties, gifts, and more. I can’t wait to use some of these ideas for our family bucket list. New ideas will be posted every day in December, so keep checking back. I know I will be!
In the meantime sip on this 3-ingredient cranberry orange mocktail while you put up the Christmas tree or have a holiday movie marathon. It will definitely make your activity merry and bright!

How do you think the recipe would be affected if I just used regular Sprite? I can’t find Cranberry Sprite anywhere right now 🙁
Regular Sprite should be fine. I think the Cranberry Sprite comes out closer to Christmas.
If we did decide to change this to a cocktail, what would you recommend? Gin, vodka?
Can this be mixed the night before in a pitcher and still taste good the following afternoon?
It will lose some of its carbonation, so it’s up to you to decide how bubbly you want it. It might be better to combine the cranberry and orange juices and wait to add the soda until just before serving.
