Simple Apple White Grape Mocktail

Okay, here’s the deal: alcohol-free Christmas drinks are a must at holiday gatherings. I mean, think about it, your party is bound to include a few designated drivers, parents who don’t drink, kids, or maybe some people who are just watching their alcohol intake. 

For these non-drinking holiday guests, it’s important to serve something fun,. These guests deserve something that says, “this is a Christmas party!”. Let’s face it, during the holiday season soda, sparkling water, and coffee just don’t cut it.  

Apple White Grape Mocktail

Well, I have the most amazing crowd-friendly, non-alcoholic holiday drink for you: my Apple and White Grape Mocktail!

First, the most important component of a holiday drink is the seasonal fruit. That’s why I make the base of this recipe with apples and grape juice. After muddling those together, we add cinnamon spice, and top it with carbonated ginger beer. I’m telling you, this fun holiday mocktail is guaranteed to put the merry in Merry Christmas!

For a recipe like this, the cocktail glass is just as important as the mocktail itself. I find a martini glass presents the perfect holiday feel, just without the booze. Garnishing this drink with fresh, bright red cranberries and a fragrant cinnamon stick for stirring, creates a festive holiday presentation. 

So, if you’ve been searching for holiday party drink recipes, search no more. Toast the season with this easy and refreshing holiday mocktail!

The Ingredients

White grape juice

Unlike red or purple grape juices which are fairly sweet, white grape juice has a distinct crispness that’s great for Christmas mocktail drinks.

Granny smith apple

The sour tartness in Granny Smith apples are a great balance to the crisp grape juice, spicy cinnamon, and ginger-forward flavor of the ginger beer. 


Holiday mocktails aren’t complete without a little holiday spice! The warm spice flavor of cinnamon makes this holiday mocktail merry and bright!

Ginger beer

A dash of ginger beer adds carbonation and a deep aromatic ginger flavor to the Apple and White Grape mocktail.

Try different apples:

Can’t get your hands on tart, sour green Granny Smith apples? Try a different tart apple variety like Braeburn or Cortland.  Because, while green Granny Smith apples really bring the Christmas color vibe, feel free to experiment with what you have in your fridge.

Just make sure you use a tart apple, and not a sweet apple.

Make it sweeter:

Let’s face it, some guests just really like sweet mocktails. If you have guests that prefer sweet Christmas mocktails, substitute ginger beer with sparkling cider for a slightly sweeter version of this mocktail.
