Christmas is over and now we turn right around to ring in the new year! I always love that we get two holidays in a row because I’m never ready for the holidays to end after Christmas. New Years Eve parties are one of my absolute favorites to attend and to host. My friends and I have always had very laid back and fun New Years Eve parties. We love to spend time during the evening to reflect on the year spent and the one ahead. Of course, there is also a little bit of silliness to our New Years Eve too! Who doesn’t like crazy new year glasses , princess crowns and blow horns? I like to make the whole evening sparkle and this Sparkling Raspberry Pear Mocktail is perfect for the occasion! Paired up with some gold and glitter makes this a New Years Eve party to remember.
To make this drink sparkle I used DASANI Sparkling Water in the berry flavor. DASANI sparkling water gives this drink a great natural flavor without caffeine or calories. DASANI sparkling water can be found at Walmart in a 12 pack of 12 oz cans with these flavors: Lime, Berry, Lemon, or Black Cherry. They all make great mixers for drinks and are zero calories, unsweetened, zero artificial colors and caffeine free! I know that I will be trying all the flavors in more drink recipes soon. There are so many creative options to try using the DASANI sparkling water on this Pinterest board.
I can’t wait to make this again for our New Years celebration! My family loved this recipe and since it’s non-alcoholic the kids get to have some too!
Sparkling Raspberry Pear Mocktail
- 1 fresh pear peeled and sliced
- 20 fresh raspberries
- 3 Tbsp . of sugar
- 1 can DASANI Sparkling Water in the berry flavor refrigerated
- 1 to 2 cups 100% pear juice refrigerated
- 12 fresh raspberries
- Mash pears with the raspberries and sugar in a medium sized bowl with a fork. There will be small sized chunks in the mashed mixture which is okay. Refrigerate this mixture until ready to use. Add the mixture to the bottom of 4 champagne glasses evenly. Next add pear juice halfway up the glass then add the DASANI sparkling water the rest of the way up. Add 3 raspberries to the top of the drink for a garnish.
This drink is so pretty and festive!!! The gold swizzle stick was made using wooden skewers and plastic mini ornaments. I cut the ornaments at the top to leave a small hole in which I inserted the skewer into. It was that easy!!! They make such fun a festive addition to the Sparkling Raspberry Pear Mocktails. Let me know if you try out this recipe and what you think of it! Be sure to check out all the other great recipes from this Pinterest board too!
