I posted this cool recipe as an example of a creative suggestion for a child's party back in 2016, and it worked out pretty well.
If you plan your own parties or get-togethers, the sky's the limit to what you can come up with. A Movie Star Sleepover, an Indoor Beach Party, a Sleeping Beauty or Mad Hatter Tea Party are just a few ideas that come to mind.
Even better are some of the really entertaining recipes that kids will be sure to enjoy and talk about for days. Use a regular ice tray, or go wild with unusual shapes to make this drink even more unique. You can also feel free to add strawberries instead of raspberries, and use plastic colorful cups or wine glasses to match your theme.
This particular "mocktail" is tasty, interesting and very simple to make. Here are the details.
4 Small Mint Leaves
1 2/3 Cups Sweetened Cranberry Juice, chilled
3/4 Cup of Lemon-Lime Soda like Sprite or 7-Up, chilled
Half-fill 12 holes in an ice cube tray of your choice with water, and put a blueberry, raspberry or a mint leaf in each one. Freeze for 3-4 hours until solid, then fill completely with water, and freeze overnight.
Mix the chilled juice and soda together in a large pitcher, and pour into glasses. Drop in your festive ice cubes right before serving and you're all set! Enjoy!
Of course, if you're an adult, you can always spike things up a little with vodka, gin champagne or wine, and guests will love it!
