I made all of the fancy glasses pretty by adding some cranberries and rosemary, inside is just some ginger ale and cranberry ginger ale, but you can always have it not be a mocktail.
I love these gold rim wine glasses HERE, and these shorter glasses HERE. I had some clear wine glasses I got at Walmart, dip the rims into your pop and then dip in sprinkles for a fun add on! Then you can add a candy cane and watch it sizzle!
