He might be a mean one, but this holiday season, don’t get caught without being Grinchless. Try this fun Grinchless Holiday Cocktail!
This holiday cocktail was inspired by.. you guessed it, “The Grinch”! All jokes aside, this Dr. Suess holiday classic is one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies to watch growing up. Heck, I still watch it! I mean, how can you not love Mr. Grinch? Seriously, you can’t. He is green, mean, has a happy heart at the end and showcases that it’s okay to be different. Just like the story behind Sparkling Ice. Have you heard of it?
Sparkling Ice’s brand story (Be Not Bland) begins with; why not be different when bland is all around us. As we all know, being “bland” is not a bad thing. Some might consider it, an ordinary thing. It can roam the sidewalks, business parks just trying to fit in or perhaps, it’s just doing what’s expected like, fitting in. Being different and not “bland” is like falling into new ways of doing things. With Sparkling Ice, you’re going to love how they have been shaking things up.
Let’s take a stand to the ordinary. Be authentic, be thirsty, be you, Be Not Bland just like Sparkling Ice!
Drum roll, please….Sparkling Ice is available in 15 (yes 15!) fruity, flavorful, sparkling waters with zero calories. Take that, you heartless soda makers. There is a new seasonal cocktail in town and it’s called, Grinchless. Oh yes! It’s one adult cocktail beverage that you don’t mind mixing with Sparkling Ice- Kiwi Strawberry flavor. It’s all about the fizz. So let the holiday festivities begin!
The Grinchless Holiday Cocktail recipe is simple but yet, fruity. In true Grinchless fashion, this drink is green and garnished with crushed candy canes. Just like the storyline, the Grinchless Holiday Cocktail will surely put you in a good mood and add some Christmas cheer!
Grinchless Holiday Cocktail Recipe:
- Sparkling Ice- Kiwi Strawberry
- Melon-Flavored Liqueur
- Simple Syrup
- Mini Candy Canes to garnish
This fruity cocktail is a nice change from an ordinary classic holiday cocktail. It’s not too sweet but I would consider it just right! There are a few ways for you to make the Grinchless Holiday Cocktail and usually, it’s with lemon juice but this time around I’ve substituted the lemon juice with Sparkling Ice- Kiwi Strawberry flavored sparkling water. Why do you ask? Because it has zero calories, enriched with vitamins and antioxidants. -And oh yeah, it’s full of fizz and flavor!
In a cocktail shaker, add ice. Begin by adding 2 ounces of melon-flavored liqueur, one teaspoon of simple syrup, one cup of Sparkling Ice- Kiwi Strawberry. Shake well. Strain cocktail into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish glass with crushed or mini candy canes.
