Have you ever tried to stay up all night on New Year’s Eve?
Did you ever make plans to stay up and put a mud mask on your face and paint your toes and give yourself a manicure with cuticle correcting cream and make your highlights even blonder with lemon juice right after you put an egg deep-conditioning treatment in your hair?
And then watch the ball drop?
And see The Spice Girls sing on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve…..way before Posh ever married David Beckham and got a much cuter hair-cut and her own clothing line?
Did you ever drink diet coke and eat the tub of popcorn with the three divided sections of caramel and cheese and butter popcorn…..until all you had left was the butter section because everyone knows the caramel and cheese are way better flavors?
So just in case you have really exciting plans for an all night popcorn beauty marathon and you need a little refreshment when it turns midnight in Juneau, Alaska…..
…..here’s a great mocktail recipe to toast the new year with.
Cranberry Sparkler Mocktail
inspired by this recipe
2 cups cranberry juice
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cans of ginger ale
1 whole orange sliced for garnish
In a pitcher combine pineapple juice, cranberry juice, orange juice and lemon juice.
Just before serving slowly add ginger ale and crushed ice.
Serve with sliced oranges for garnish.
It is so 2013…..not too sweet with a little fizz and a little tart.
And it’s perfect for toasting the Spice Girls and eating caramel popcorn with freshly highlighted hair and glowing mud-conditioned skin.
I’m just sayin’.
Happy New Year!
