This sparkling mistletoe mule mocktail is such a festive beverage for the holidays! Made with ginger beer, apple cider, and limebubly™ sparkling water, this easy pitcher drink comes together in minutes.
One of the many, many things I love about the holidays is planning out which recipes I'll make throughout the season.
Some are staples, like long-time family recipe cookies, that would quite frankly cause an uproar if they were to be left off the list. But each year I like to balance out tradition with something new to keep things fresh.
'Something new' can be a different side dish or two at Thanksgiving dinner or yet another delicious way to eat gingerbread in baked good form, but one of my favorite ways to switch things up is to make a specialty drink.
Crafting a pitcher drink for a party is a simple way to jazz up the same old, same old of a beverage station and makes serving guests extra efficient. And with holiday treats abound, this sparkling mistletoe mule mocktail is an ultra-refreshing option.
Mocktail superstar: limebubly™ sparkling water
The base of this holiday mocktail recipe is limebubly™ sparkling water. With both plenty of natural fruit flavor and effervescence, it's a crisp sparkling water that livens up get-togethers as well as everyday life. As it's made without calories or sweeteners, it's a great choice for cracking open a can by itself or mixing into a mocktail recipe the whole family can enjoy.
Picking a favorite bubly™ sparkling water flavor is TOUGH. I'm such a big sparkling water fan I've actually commandeered my husband's old mini fridge from college (!) for my multi-flavor collection, and limebubly™ sparkling water is a mainstay.
You can find bubly™ sparkling water in the sparkling water aisle at your local Publix. Whether shopping in person or using Instacart for pick-up or delivery, shopping at Publix truly is a pleasure.

As big fans of both ginger beer and bubly™ sparkling water, I knew this mistletoe mule mocktail would go over well in my household. It comes together in minutes and strikes just the right balance of being fancy-flavored and thirst-quenching at once.
To make one pitcher of this beverage, you'll need:
- Two cans of limebubly™ sparkling water
- Four ounces of ginger beer
- Four ounces of apple cider
- Fresh limes (for squeezing and garnish)
With a fizzy ginger flavor and lots of lime, this mocktail mule hits all the right notes for a fun party drink without alcohol. I love how hydrating it is to sip with limebubly™ sparkling water as the main ingredient.
Another thing to love about this mistletoe mule mocktail is how quickly it all comes together! There isn't any need for pre-making syrups or muddling this or that.
Simply fill a pitcher (the one seen in these photos has a 60-ounce capacity) with ice, pour everything in, and stir to combine. Pour out into tall glasses and there you go!
As written, this recipe will yield about six drinks, but if you're serving a larger crowd or have a larger vessel, it's not difficult to scale up.

- If you're new to ginger beer, it's a non-alcoholic, carbonated ginger beverage. It's similar to ginger ale, but with much more ginger 'bite.' Yum! I frequently find it in the drink mixers section of the store.
