This festive punch from Carter Jewell of Mocksie Craft Mocktails in Wilmington, N.C., is a wonderful adult beverage alternative for the holidays. Utilizing Danny Trejo’s non-alcoholic tequila and Pentire’s Coastal Spritz, popular in Wilmington’s small coastal community, notes of tart cherry, orange, and cinnamon make it a holiday favorite.



Rim a rocks glass in a mix of cinnamon and sugar. Over ice, mix tequila alternative, Coastal Spritz, Cheerwine Holiday Punch, bitters, blue agave nectar and mocktail glitter. Stir vigorously. Add a cinnamon stick. Enjoy with good company and warm conversation.
