From Sierra Mist come two festive cocktails, sure to add zing to your holiday parties! If you're avoiding artificial ingredients - as I am - rest your troubled head with the knowledge that Sierra Mist is made with real sugar, no artificial ingredients, 100% natural flavorings.
I made the two below for a recent party, and while I think I prefer "Meet Me at the Mist-letoe" for the holidays, one of my guests pointed out that "Frost Bite" would be prefect for a holiday-in-the-tropics theme, what with the orange and coconut flavors. Good point.
