There are many things I love during the holiday season, but one in particular is giving back. I try to give back throughout the year, but there are so many great reminders during the holidays. Dr. Pepper Snapple Group is helping us all give back this year by giving. Look for specially marked packages of 7UP at Walmart- with every purchase there will be a donation to The Salvation Army. How fantastic is that?

I love when a brand gives back and when they do I celebrate! For this event I have created a We Wish You A Cherry Christmas Mocktail! This is a great drink to make for your holiday parties. It’s non-alcoholic so just about anyone can enjoy it!

You will need:

  • 4-6oz 7UP
  • 1/4 cup black cherries, fresh or frozen
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Ice


  • muddler (a wooden stick used to crush fruit in cocktails)
  • champagne flute
  • cocktail shaker

Start by adding cherries, juice, and sugar into a shaker. Muddle with the muddler by crushing it all together for about 20 seconds. This will help the flavors mix and infuse with each other. Add ice and shake vigorously for about 10 seconds. Pour strained into champagne flute and top with 7UP. Garnish with a cherry and a lemon twist if desired.

Can you imagine how much your guests and family will love this? It’s not only pretty to look at but absolutely delicious and refreshing.
