This drink is so delicious. Rich and thick and frothy, the sweet flavor of strawberries pairs so wonderfully with the subtle spiciness of the ginger ale. Use a smoothie straw to sip this drink, and serve with a spoon, too. You will want to scoop out ice cream in between sips of ginger ale. This is such a fun, festive drink

I also like to fill a big bowl with Christmas ornaments and set that out on the table, as well. It makes such a big impact with so little effort! And if you keep the colors of your ornaments consistent, it will be an elegant addition to your holiday decor!
