In time for the upcoming holiday season, our friends from Primo Sparkling Juice share 3 delicious recipes that you can make and enjoy with the family.

When the “ber” months hit, you know it’s time. From the warbling tunes of Jose Marie Chan (and the many accompanying memes) to the emergence of tinsel, the Christmas lights, and more, the holidays are a 3 month-long celebration in the Philippines. However, things are much different now, especially with the looming pandemic and its many new strains. And for that, virtual celebrations have become the norm.

Amid safe days spent at home, we are still constantly on the lookout for fun ways to celebrate with family, friends, and loved ones. Whether this means snacking on your favorite deli meats and cheese in charcuterie boards, sharing a party platter with family, and drinking delicious cocktails in your e-numan sessions, there’s no denying how good food and drink are integral in every celebration.

Make Celebrations Fancy

While wines and spirits are limited to adults only, we’ve recently discovered a drink for all ages—one that even kids can enjoy.

Enter Primo Sparkling Juice—a premium beverage fresh from Spain. Made with premium ingredients, this deliciously non-alcoholic and carbonated beverage adds an extra festive and sparkly touch to celebrations. With its selection of sparkling white and red grape flavors, you are promised a well-crafted taste in every sip.

For those who prefer full-bodied drinks, the Primo Red is a perfect fit. With its strong berry-like flavor, this fruity sparkling juice is the non-alcoholic sister of red wine—sharp but punctuated with a distinct sweetness and made with red grapes. On the other hand, those who prefer a light, sparkling drink will surely enjoy the Primo Whitea smooth-tasting tropical-themed variant packed with a citrus punch.

While these drinks are delicious even on their own, the real magic lies in their versatility. One to stand in the spotlight, Primo’s sparkling juices make great additions to your go-to mocktail and party drinks. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why Primo should be a staple in every celebration.

Here are 3 mocktail recipes from our friends at Primo, which we think you and your family will definitely enjoy:
