Kiddie Cocktails

November 28, 2016


A fun,easy drink for kids ( and adults) this holiday season!

Hello and hiya friends! If you celebrated, I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Mine was good. Besides the holiday, we had tons of errands to get done. It was crazy busy. I need a holiday to recover from the holiday!

Speaking of holidays...

When I see this label, it's a total blast from the past.


When I was a kid, every Christmas Eve, my father would make us kids these. We would sit at the family bar (built circa 1960's...very spiffy) and drink from real bar glasses. We were an extremely sophisticated bunch.

We don't have a bar here in my house, but, we do drink these Kiddie Cocktails every year on Christmas Eve.  My kids love them (so do I!) and they are just a delicious way to make your holidays extra fun.

All you need it lemon lime soda ( ex: 7UP, Sierra Mist, Sprite) and grenadine syrup. You will find grenadine syrup in your liquor store or liquor department of your grocery store. NO..there is no alcohol in it!  It is simply a flavored syrup. We have always purchased the brand above, but, any brand will work.

Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the nostalgia! I remember those very well, too (when all the adults were sipping Grasshoppers and Old Fashioneds at the "supper club", all of us kids were sipping kiddie cocktails feeling very cool, lol. My own kids love them, too :-)
