New Year’s Eve has always been a family affair for us. It’s a night of favorite board games, delicious appetizers, chatting about the future and watching the televised festivities unfold in Times Square. The countdown to the big ball drop is met with a toast, ringing in the New Year. When the clock strikes midnight, and it’s time to celebrate, bring out these fun and fizzy mocktails in fancy glasses for the younger crowd to enjoy. Tart pomegranates meet their sweet counterpart with lemon-lime soda. Fancy and fun, Fizzy Pom is a favorite way to ring in the New Year, kid style!
Don’t have pomegranate juice on hand? No worries, you can use cranberry juice a substitute.
