Sparkling Ice while a tasty beverage on it's own can also be used to make some tasty holiday drinks. That's right! This 0 calorie, carbonated drink that comes in so many flavors is sure to make your holiday table even more festive with these boozy cocktails. Here is a recipe from the people at Sparkling Ice wishing to make your holiday a whole lot better.

Sparkle and Spice

1 star anise pod
1 vanilla bean

Combine rum, cinnamon stick, clove, cardamom, star anise, vanilla bean, allspice berries, and nutmeg in an airtight jar. Split vanilla bean and scrape seeds into jar along with the bean pod. Close jar and allow infusion to sit in a dark place for at least 3 days. Strain rum into an airtight jar with a fine-mesh strainer, discarding spices. Over ice, pour 2 ounces of rum infusion. Top with Sparkling Ice Lemon Lime and garnish with blackberries.
