Let’s face it, you are not going to be able to pull off some “Hail Mary” of goodness that’ll impress Santa this late in the game. So that’s why I’ve loaded this drink with everything that is bad (but actually oh-so-good!). You know what I’m talking about (*Wink Wink*). This cocktail has an unapologetic amount of deliciousness, starting with gin and elderflower liqueur. But the coup de gras that takes it from spark to dynamite is the addition of Sparkling ICE. The brand offers up sparkling fruity waters packed with taste, but without the calories. With 15 flavors to choose from, like Black Raspberry, Orange Mango, Cherry Limeade, and Kiwi Strawberry, you won’t be disappointed. For this cocktail recipe, I added the Sparkling ICE Black Cherry, but you could easily substitute it with any of the brand’s other flavors… if you’re naughty.
