The holiday season calls for special meals and one hundred percent juice is a colorful, convenient and cost-effective way to make your holiday more festive. Whether you are hosting a fancy holiday party, informal get-together or even quiet times unwinding on a cozy couch , 100% juices are the perfect way to add a unique twist.
Here are three ways 100% juice can help you celebrate the season with joy, happiness and fun:
1. Make Mocktails, Cocktails and Punches – The best thing about cocktails is that they can easily be turned into mocktails. . According to Datassential, nearly half of consumers (49%) are interested in low-alcohol cocktails and 45% of consumers are interested in craft “mocktails”. One hundred percent juice fits the bill. At your next party consider serving up a Cranberry Paloma, Rosemary Grape ‘Rita, Sparkling Apple Cider or Pomegranate Moscow Mule.
