It is that time of year and cheer is in the air! Maybe even a little snow falling depending on where you live. The holiday season is a time when people are sipping cocktails and celebrating. We are sharing a fun one that is great for kids as well as adults (you can add a little Rum Chata in if you are looking for an alcoholic cocktail). So quick, easy, oh and did I mention fun? You can make smaller portions to serve at holiday get togethers or make them just to celebrate the first snowfall! Last year the girls had made floats that they called Frost Fairy Floats. They were actually an accident. They went to make pink cherry floats and didn’t know that Zevia Black Cherry Soda weren’t pink. They both sat there watching the bubbles dance and foam up around the ice cream and said it reminded them of snow and it was snowing at the time and they were so excited and called them Frost Fairy Floats. To play on that we thought Zevia Cream Soda and its creamy marshmallow flavor tasted like how we sugary fluffy snow so we also made a version with the cream soda called a Jack Frost Float! We were hoping to make it blue with blueberries but it was pink and we don’t like add food coloring so we kept it as is. Add a little sugar to the rim for sparkle and fun, place the glass in the freezer ahead of time to frost up for a real treat.
Zevia is having a Cheers To Contest, share your #CheersTo holiday moments and win big prizes through December 31st! See all the #CheersTo and get the details here. When I heard about this I knew it was a sign that I needed to have a little fun making some holiday, cheer worthy drinks! Even more fitting since it fits our Christmas theme and our Christmas cards even say “Cheers!”. We are saying #CheersTo family, friends, and happy healthy holidays!
