Make the kids feel like a part of the festivities with this mint and berry “mocktail.” What kid can’t resist fresh raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and sugar? Have a Merry Berry Christmas! This party beverage is great in the summertime as well, but its vibrant red color makes it ideal for Christmas and it makes an enjoyable New Years Eve drink for the kiddos to stay up and make.

4 fresh blueberries

2 fresh blackberries

1 1/2 tablespoons guava nectar
