Winter Break Fun for Mom: Cocktails, Mocktails & Coloring

Having your children home for winter break can be overwhelming. Between the holiday madness, running them to events, and keeping them entertained, it can be really draining for a mom!

Have your spouse watch your kids for an hour or so and give yourself some much-needed (and much-deserved!) alone time to relax and unwind with an adult coloring book and a delicious cocktail or mocktail – recipes below.

No one available to watch your kids? Turn it into a family party with alcohol-free mocktails for all and a personalized coloring book for you to share, like Let's Color Together, or a personalized coloring book for kids, like our Hello Kitty coloring books!

Some of our favorite personalized adult coloring books include:

Sparkling Raspberry Mocktail

Via PoofyCheeks.com

INGREDIENTS

  • Frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate
  • 3 cups of cold water
  • Frozen raspberries (or fresh)
  • Sparkling white grape juice

DIRECTIONS

  • In a small pitcher mix frozen lemonade and three cups of water
  • For ice-cubes sprinkle raspberries into an ice cube tray and then slowly pour the raspberry lemonade mix over them. Set the remaining drink mix aside until later. **(If you are using deep ice cube trays I recommend only filling 1/2 way high so they will fit in champagne flutes).
  • When ready to serve add ice cubes to each glass and pour about one tablespoon of the raspberry lemonade in the bottom of each glass.
  • Top off the glass with sparkling grape juice and toast!

Enjoy!
