New Year's Eve Cider

Dip the rim of each glass in water. Pour sanding sugar on a plate. Dip the rim of each glass into the sanding sugar for a festive glass.

Fill each glass 3/4 full of ice. Pour your punch mixture into the individual glasses. Add 2 tablespoons or 2 oz of cranberry juice into each glass. Garnish with fresh cranberries.
That’s all there is to it! A sweet, sparkling cider inspired drink that has a rich blue color with a great pop of red that will blend the flavors together as you drink. It’s really fun to add to the festivities of New Year’s Eve with a drink that adds to the excitement of the celebration.
