Rudolph Noses Holiday Drink Bar #SparklingHolidays


This post about a kids’s holiday drink bar is brought to you by Dasani and Acorn Influence. #SparklingHolidays 

I have provided a lot of entertaining tips in the past. Some people are truly intimidated by the idea of entertaining and try to avoid it at all costs. I love to entertain, and it really is not hard if you take steps to make dishes ahead of time and set up self-serve stations, such as a popcorn bar, a waffle bar, and hot cocoa or drink bars. When guests arrive, I direct them to the drink and food areas so they can create their drinks and snacks. An open bar area provides a great opportunity for guests to mingle as well. This Holiday season our signature drink will be Rudolph’s Nose, a non-alcoholic drink that both adults and kids will like.

To set up a signature drink station, simply assemble all of the ingredients in a designated area. I used a gold tray for the holidays.

For the Rudolph’s Nose drinks, guests can alter the drink to their flavor preference. I created a carafe of cranberry juice, a carafe of limeade concentrate (not mixed, just defrosted from the can), and a few different cans of flavored Dasani Sparkling water. DASANI Sparkling Water is available at Walmart and is perfect for sparkling the holidays. Sparkling Flavors include Lime, Berry, Lemon or Black Cherry in a 12 pack of 12 oz. cans.

Pre-assemble skewers or large tooth picks with a few fresh cranberries, and set them in each glass.

To make this festive drink, pour about a tablespoon of limeade concentrate and 2 tablespoons of cranberry in a glass filled with ice.

Top the glass with Dasani Sparkling Water. Stir and enjoy. Dasani Sparkling water is the perfect mixer for a Kids Holiday Drink bar. Each flavor has zero calories, is unsweetened, contains zero artificial colors, and is caffeine-free.

You can always add more flavor to your drink to make it just right.

Now, you no longer have to waste a large pitcher if someone doesn’t like their drink after pouring a large glass. With this Holiday Drink Bar, guests can choose according to their tastes.

Holiday entertaining should be fun for both the hostess and guests. Having a beverage station means one less thing to worry about while you’re guests are over. Making the ingredients accessible to guests means they can refill as needed.
