Sparkling Ginger Cider Mocktail

I had so much fun this year celebrating the holidays on Food Network's The Dish with so many other talented food bloggers.  At Thanksgiving, one recipe caught my eye and screamed, "I am perfect for the New Year!"  Amanda at EasyPeasyOrganic shared her recipe for a Thanksgiving Ginger Cocktail that, while already made with safe ingredients, could easily be made with the "Ginger-Honey Tea" syrup that I posted for my "Snack Match: Hot Cocoa" last January.  I used my "Ginger-Honey Tea" syrup and topped it off with sparkling apple cider for the bubbles.  Yum-my!

Sparkling Ginger Cider Mocktail
1 recipe "Ginger-Honey Tea"
1 bottle Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Cider
a few cranberries or raspberries, washed
  1. Pour a teaspoon of the "Ginger-Honey Tea" syrup in a champagne flute.  You may add more or less to taste. (Personally, I like about a T... but I am a ginger maniac!)
  2. Top the glass off with Sparkling Apple Cider.
  3. Float a cranberry or a couple of raspberries to add a festive look!
  4. Enjoy!

  1. Aside from the fact that this drink is deliciously enticing, it also has a therapeutic effect. It can soothe throat. This is effective for people who are suffering from strep throat and other respiratory infections. I actually consider ginger tea as one of the most effective sore throat home remedies.
