    Your Rudolph Mocktail recipe??? Just the 2 tablespoons of the syrup? That will not fill the glass and what is making the bubbles?

      Hi Debbie, thanks for stopping by. This is a guest post from BerryWorld. You can click on the link half way down to visit them if you want too and see all their recipes. You can add more syrup if you like, to taste. The Elderflower Presse used in this recipe is sparkling so the bubbles will come from the fizz.
