Updated on March 27, 2011

Celebrate the holidays with tasty drinks everyone will enjoy. Your party won't be complete without these alcohol-free alternatives.

Be sure to serve these in pretty, holiday glasses.

Use the juice from each of the recipes to make "ice" cubes: keep your beverages cold without diluting them!

Garnish with fresh fruit slices, cherries, and mint.

Cheers: Spiced Lemonade, Apple Spritzer, and Cranberry Spritzer!

      Absolutely love this! I got hungry and didn't know what to eat, reeembermd this chart & just tried it out today. I tried sour cream, thyme, mozzarella & cheddar. Came out great. One of the best grilled cheese I've had! The sour cream & thyme just work great together. Thanks so much! :)
