Several other sodas that we have recommended include GuS, DRY, and Vignette Wine Country sodas. Wine Country is especially interesting to us, since it uses wine grapes to make a light, dry, fizzy sip that seems like it would be very food-friendly. We also love the subtle, barely-scented DRY soda; the Juniper and Kumquat are especially promising for pairing with holiday foods.

Here are a few more non-alcoholic drinks, some of which you can make yourself.
• Buckler Non-Alcoholic Beer - Highest rated NA beer we've tried.
• Non-Alcoholic Cocktails that Impress - A great roundup of fun NA cocktails, with recipes.
• Rhubarb Soda - Syrup and soda.
• Blackberry Elderflower Spritzer with Mint - This is quite summery, but there are other options for homemade holiday spritzers. We have to say that fizzy water with a few cranberries and a slice of lime is pretty nice.
There are a lot of creative options, even without buying one of the recommendations above. What non-alcoholic holiday sips do you serve and drink?
