Blue Christmas

Published December 7, 2012 by jenmatteson

I generally stay away from fruity drinks and sweet mixers, but it’s always fun to try something new once in a while.  My aunt asked me to make a non-alcoholic blue drink for her Christmas cookie exchange, and I think I really rose to the challenge.  This isn’t overly fruity, as the cranberry juice’s tartness mellows the sweetness from the Kool-Aid (OH YEAH!).  Adding in the 7-UP brings a little bubbly to the party.  I dressed this up a bit more to make it more Christmasy by using crushed candy canes (the cherry flavor) on the rim of the glasses.  Super fun!  Everyone loved these drinks and I had to make a second batch for dinner as they drank up the first one during the appetizers!

Ingredients:

1 tbsp ice blue raspberry lemonade Kool-Aid (I used the kind pre-mixed with sugar)
6 oz white cranberry and peach juice (white cranberry would be fine, but I couldn’t find any)
2 oz 7-UP

Directions:

1. Mix together Kool-Aid mixture and white cranberry juice.  Pour over ice and top with 7-UP and serve.  *For and adult version, simply add vodka, Kool-Aid mix, and juice to shaker with ice.  Shake and pour, then add 7-UP.
