07 Dec Non-Alcoholic Cranberry Thyme Spritzer
I’m a sipper. I always have a drink at hand. I’ve grown accustomed to drinking a lot of water, and I’m usually fine with that. Sometimes, though, I want something different. On the Whole30 plan, there aren’t a lot of options. As it gets closer to Christmastime, and I see all the wonderful holiday sweets and cocktail recipes on Pinterest, I get a little down. Those things just have way too many calories, and it’s not really the alcohol or the sweets I want anyway. I just like to sip on the pretty, festive drinks. I went into the kitchen determined to mix up something to lift my spirits. This Non-Alcoholic Cranberry Thyme Spritzer made my night and put me back in a Christmas-y state of mind. It has all the characteristics of one of those festive holiday cocktails. It’s bubbly, red, cranberry-ish…what more could you want?? Did I mention it’s technically Whole30-compliant? Score!
This Non-Alcoholic Cranberry Thyme Spritzer was embarrassingly easy to make, but here’s the recipe anyway:Print
