Mock Poinsettia

Mock Poinsettia

Traditionally, this cocktail is named for the festive plants that sit on holiday tables, but you can try this drink sans alcohol with your favorite red juice–either pomegranate or cranberry, or mix the two.


  • 8 ounces sparkling water
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups pomegranate seeds or fresh cranberries (or a combo of both)
  • 1 red apple
  • A sprig of rosemary or thyme, to garnish


  • Juice pomegranate seeds or cranberries or a mixture of the two with the apple.⁣
  • Add about 1 cup of sparkling water to a glass, along with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar, and mix. ⁣
  • Then, add a splash (about 2 tablespoons) of juice mixture. ⁣
  • Garnish with a sprig of rosemary, thyme or extra pomegranate seeds to add that festive touch.⁣


For a faster mocktail, feel free to use a no-added sugar pomegranate or cranberry juice (organic, if you can).


This juice is hydrating, plus pomegranate juice contains vitamins C and B5, potassium and natural phenols, such as ellagitannins and flavonoids. apple cider vinegar shines with probiotic power.
