What is jingle juice?

Jingle juice is a creative holiday spin on the old-time classic, jungle juice. This jingle juice recipe includes cranberry-apple juice, sparkling rosé, vodka, triple sec, and lemon-lime soda.

Can I make jingle juice ahead of time?

Yes! If making ahead, leave out the sparkling rosé until the very last minute. Right before serving, stir in cold sparkling rosé. This ensures the bubbly zip will be there for your guests!

The best vodka for jingle juice is your favorite vodka. Make sure to use high-quality vodka, or try cranberry-flavored vodka!

Absolutely! You can use white rum, tequila, or gin instead of vodka.

Make Ahead Instructions

Stir together all of the ingredients except for the sparkling rosé and garnishes in a large pitcher. Store tightly covered with plastic wrap for up to 1 day. Stir in the rosé before serving.

Storage Instructions

Store leftover jingle juice in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. Keep in mind that the soda may turn flat. I do not recommend freezing jingle juice.

Substitutions

  • For a cocktail that is more tart, swap the cranberry-apple juice for straight cranberry juice.
  • If you’re not a fan of cranberry, try raspberry-apple or cherry juice.
  • In place of the sparkling rosé, you can use prosecco, champagne, sparkling cider, or sparkling grape juice.
  • In place of the vodka, you can use white rum, tequila, or gin. You can also leave it out for a less boozy cocktail.
  • In place of the triple sec, you can use Cointreau or orange juice.

Scaling Down

Tips for the Best Jingle Juice

  • To keep your jingle juice extra cold, don’t defrost the cranberries, and try freezing the lime slices as well!
  • You can also freeze cranberry-apple juice ice cubes in advance and add them to the pitcher to keep it extra cold without watering it down.
