3 Course Holiday Menu

3 Course Holiday Menu

Happy Thursday Friends! With the Holidays just around the corner I am sure you are busy planning your Holiday menus and today I have some delicious recipe ideas to share with you! A big thanks to DRY Sparkling for partnering with us for today’s video & post! DRY makes delicious sparkling sodas that pair great with food & so today you’ll see just how to do that! DRY also just released a new flavor that I’m loving, Fuji Apple! You can learn more about DRY Sparkling here. 

 

DRY SPARKLING HIGHLIGHTS

  • DRY’s main differentiator is their culinary flavors! They offer nine flavors and each is true to the extract or essence of the natural fruit, flower or herb.
  • DRY Sparkling has just four simple ingredients and all varieties are Non-GMO project verified, sodium-free, gluten-free and OU Kosher Certified. They use nothing artificial!
  • DRY Sparkling is less than half as sweet as most juices or traditional sodas. Sweetness actually varies by flavor to ensure it’s balanced.
  • DRY is great as a light refreshment on its own, paired with a meal or mixed into a cocktail!
