Being pregnant during holiday party season doesn’t mean you have to stick to water while everyone else sips on champagne. This festive cranberry mocktail is easy to make and quite refreshing. As an added bonus, the raw honey will help soothe any dry or sore throat you may have thanks to cold season! To make this for a crowd, you can double or triple the recipe. The cranberry mixture can even be made a day ahead of time and stored in the fridge. When you are ready to serve, just mix with sparkling water and enjoy!
