This year I won’t be ringing in the New Year with a flute of champagne because I’m preggers but I have the perfect Sparkling Raspberry Mocktail that I honestly enjoy drinking more than any glass of champagne anyway! Since this is baby number four I am no stranger to sparkling grape juice around the holidays. I should literally take stock in it because I have gone through a dozen bottles the past few weeks. Pair the grape juice with a few other ingredients and you have an elegant non alcoholic drink on your hands!
- 1 12 ounce frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate
- 3 cup cold water
- 1 cup frozen raspberries or fresh work too
- 1 bottle Sparkling Grape Juice
In a small pitcher mix frozen lemonade concentrate and three cups of water.
For ice-cubes sprinkle raspberries into an ice cube tray and then slowly pour the raspberry lemonade mix over them. Set the remaining drink mix aside until later.
When ready to serve add ice cubes to each glass and pour about one tablespoon of the raspberry lemonade in the bottom of each glass.
Top off the glass with sparkling grape juice and toast!
**(If you are using deep ice cube trays I recommend only filling 1/2 way high so they will fit in champagne flutes).
