My go to “mocktail” is as simple as they come. I call it a CranGinger, though I’m sure there’s probably a name for it somewhere. I do equal parts Cranberry Juice and Ginger Ale. Play with the ratio to your tastebuds liking. It’s a delicious and festive drink to enjoy at any function and most any bar can make it happen!
