Holiday Cherry Cheer Cocktail

Holiday Cherry Cheer Cocktail // Made with Skinnygirl Tangerine Vodka // Twin Stripe

I’m a sucker for a holiday beverage, especially anything that involves cranberry and cherry! Today I’m sharing an easy, fruity holiday cocktail that will be perfect to serve with Christmas brunch. It uses juices you might already have on hand for brunch, so you don’t have to spend extra time at the grocery store. Mix a big batch in a pitcher so family and friends can help themselves.

Keep on reading to find the recipe for the festive Holiday Cheery Cheer cocktail!

It sounds delicious, doesn’t it! If you have a hard time finding the cherry brandy, you can always drizzle a bit of grenadine for a cherry kick or just skip it. Either way, it will still be delicious.

I also have to let you know that I picked up the adorable plaid “Cheers” straws at the Target Dollar Spot. They were of course $3, but I decided they were too cute to pass up.

One thought on “Holiday Cherry Cheer Cocktail

  1. Okay Katie, bring this recipe with you. We can plan Christmas brunch and add this cherry cocktail to the menu. What a change from the usual bloody mary or mimosa. Can’t wait to see you and Chad.
