Meet Me At The Mistletoe Cocktail | Sierra Mist Natural

Sierra Mist Mixologists have come up with some Holiday Cocktail Concoctions.  They've asked some bloggers to sample them - tough job, right?!  My favorite was the "Meet Me At The Mistletoe" - a berry vodka drink with fresh lime & basil.  Instead of garnishing with a basil leaf, I used a sprig of rosemary - I love how "Holiday" it looks!

Sierra Mist Natural is a great shortcut for cocktails that call for a simple syrup... it was one of my secrets as a caterer.  It is different than other sweet sodas because like real simple syrup (that is reduced sugar and water), it is made with real sugar, no artificial ingredients, 100% natural flavoring - and I love the fizz that it adds to my cocktails.

“Which Sierra Mist Natural cocktail/mocktail would you like to try?”
