It’s officially the holiday season! I can’t wait to celebrate at holiday parties with all of my family and friends. I have an easy holiday drink recipe with just THREE ingredients that everyone will love! It even makes an amazing quick and easy hostess gift! Head to the end of the post for the full recipe.
With four kids, I’m always rushing around. When it’s time for us to go to a holiday party, I need an EASY hostess gift idea. So this year, I’m going to be sharing the Gift of Coca-Cola® with everyone by taking ingredients to make a delicious non-alcoholic holiday drink. It’s so easy to stop at my local Walmart on the way to a party and pick up Coca-Cola® and Simply® Cranberry Cocktail. Keep reading for the full holiday drink recipe!
There’s a great supply of Coca-Cola® in the soda aisle of Walmart.
The Simply® Cranberry Cocktail can be found in the Premium Juice section.
And since I can’t resist dressing up my holiday drinks – here’s an simple tutorial to make Cranberry Ice Cubes!
Place fresh (or frozen) cranberries in a cocktail ice cube tray. For these larger cubes 3-4 cranberries is sufficient. Fill with water and freeze for a few hours until fully frozen.
These ice cubes are a great way to add color and detail to your drinks without changing the flavor!
Every Hostess will appreciate the addition of an easy holiday drink, especially if you bring the ingredients with you. Picking up a 2-liter of Coca-Cola® is the perfect gift to show the hostess you appreciate their efforts this holiday season!
When you arrive at the party, you can set up a small drink station for the hostess. Set out the 2-liter of Coca-Cola®, a pitcher of cranberry juice and a small bottle of vanilla and everyone can mix this simple drink.

This recipe is a simple way to mix up a new holiday favorite!
Cranberry Vanilla Coke-tail Recipe:

- Directions: Fill a glass 3/4 of the way with Coca-Cola® or Coca-Cola® Zero Sugar. Add 2 to 3 drops of imitation vanilla flavoring and top it off with cranberry juice. Give it a good stir, then serve.
I also placed a couple of cranberries on a small skewer and finished it off with a small red ribbon to be used as a drink stirrer. I absolutely love how festive this drink looks. Everyone will be asking how to make this easy holiday drink at their next party!
