Raising the bar with drink recipes

With the holiday season in full swing—and festive get-togethers happening once again—now is the perfect time to explore recipes that feature PepsiCo beverages as a mixer. We’ve added a selection of flavorful new recipes to the site, all ready to be mixed, shaken, stirred and enjoyed!

Of course, PepsiCo beverages already taste great on their own. But by using them as mixers for either alcoholic or nonalcoholic drinks, you can appeal to your customers’ desires for new flavor experiences. So whether you’re looking for cocktails or mocktails, read on to discover the tasty details.

Get in the spirit with booze-infused recipes

Holiday parties are sure to be a smashing success with our bubly blackberry smash on the beverage menu, made with blackberry bubly sparkling water, bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup and blackberries.

And when the weather outside is frightful, how about a tropical-themed cocktail to warm your customers’ souls? Our Piña Basil Fizz pairs Viva Sol Piña with fresh, herby basil, light rum, fizzy soda and tart lime for a delicious way to celebrate anything

Hold the alcohol, but keep the festivity

For partygoers who prefer a nonalcoholic beverage—but still want something festive and flavorful to sip on, mocktails are the way to go. In fact, 42% of consumers agree that, if offered, they’d be likely to purchase mocktails that taste like they contain alcohol.1

Mtn Dew answers the holiday bell by pairing perfectly with bold fruit flavors. Our Dew Lu’au is a call from the islands featuring Mtn Dew with a wave of pineapple, orange and pomegranate juices.

Stubborn Soda is another can’t-miss option, offered in a variety of natural flavors that are ready to mix with the holiday party crowd. Our Cherry Sparkler looks and tastes the part with its ruby red hue and herbal flavor, all thanks to Stubborn Soda Black Cherry Tarragon, a sprig of fresh tarragon and lime.
