Whether you are looking for the perfect Thanksgiving drink or pondering what to serve at your holiday gathering, CASCAL, the foodie-favorite fermented soft drink made from all-natural juices, are ready to quench your thirst!
CASCAL is debuting several brand new cocktails for the upcoming holiday season including the Cranberry Carousel, Brooding Cherries, High Seas and Chocolate Rouge.
1 ½ oz Grand Marnier
2.5 oz Cascal Ripe Rouge Natural Soft Drink
Method: Fill a Highball glass with ice, pour in Grand Marnier, then CASCAL. Stir gently. Garnish with fresh cranberries.
An option here is to macerate the cranberries in dark rum the night before. In doing this you can muddle the cranberries into the bottom of the glass. Also, cranberries steeped in dark rum make for a great side garnish and most appropriate for the holidays. Warm notes, simple but perfect for the holidays.
