Let me give you a little back story to today: It is about noon, December 31. I am madly running around cleaning the house getting ready for company. We are cooking up fondue, appetizers, and getting ready for an onslaught of kids that are going to stay up waaaayyyyy too late and undue 5 hours of cleaning in about 20 minutes. And of course, I am taking pictures and video of every little step preparing the food for company because after all, I am a blogger. You know what I don’t want to worry about?  Making really complicated drinks for everyone at the end of the night. I will be making this great New Years Eve mixed drink as a toast.

This is such a simple drink to make I can literally make it for a camera in under one minute. Plus it is a very pretty drink with reds, white, and blue in it. It also has fresh fruit, which is always a bonus when making beverages. Just look at these pictures! I would serve this mixed drink at any party!

 

To make the New Years Eve mixed drink, you will need:

  • Prosecco or sparkling wine
  • Cranberry juice
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries

To make the drink really pop, you want to layer the colors. Start with the heaviest liquid. In this case is it the cranberry juice. Pour a flute or champagne glass one quarter to one third of the way full with the juice.

Then, make sure you use a spoon to help the layers stay separated. Pour the sparkling wine or prosecco over the spoon so it gently rolls onto the cranberry juice.

Finally, add the strawberry garnish and blueberries to the top. After all, my New Year’s Resolution is to eat more fruit. I am just sharing my favorite way to do it. Well, fruit and jelly beans. But that would have been weird in this drink.
