Unveiling the Chocolate-Covered-Cherry-Sparkling-Mocktail
Let’s kickstart the holiday season with a bang, celebrating with our very own chocolate-covered-cherry-sparkling-mocktail. This post is brought to you by Acorn, an influential company, and DASANI Sparkling Water, our key ingredient for creating this #SparklingHolidays mocktail.
Why We Love the Holiday Season
The holiday season is a magical time, with its enchanting sights, alluring smells, and delightful tastes. It’s a time to gather with loved ones, reminiscing the past year and celebrating the upcoming one. Every year, we host a holiday gathering, and while the guest list may change, the joy and spirit of hosting never wane. This year, we’ve spent some time concocting festive drinks for both adults and kids. Our special focus has been on creating a mocktail that will make the holidays sparkle for your little ones.
The Role of DASANI Sparkling Water in Our Mocktail
Before we dive into the mocktail recipe, let’s discuss a bit about our star ingredient – DASANI Sparkling Water. Available at Walmart in four flavors – Lime, Berry, Lemon, & Black Cherry – this sparkling water comes in a twelve-pack of 12 oz cans, ensuring there is plenty for everyone. The Black Cherry variant is our choice for the chocolate-covered-cherry-sparkling-mocktail. Not only does it add an effervescent sparkle to our mocktail but also brings in a hint of black cherry flavor without adding any calories or sugar. Plus, it’s naturally caffeine-free, eliminating the risk of hyperactive children! Whether you’re mixing an alcoholic cocktail, a mocktail or a wine spritzer, DASANI’s flavored Sparkling Water adds a bit of fizz and a bit of natural flavor to your concoction.
