Cranberry spritzer

Unsweetened cranberry juice is the base for this sparkling beverage.

To lower calories even further, use a low-calorie sweetener in place of the sugar.

Ingredients (Serves 10)

  • 1 quart reduced-calorie cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 quart seltzer water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup raspberry sherbet
  • 10 lemon or lime wedges


Refrigerate the cranberry juice, lemon juice and carbonated water until cold.

In a large pitcher, mix together the cranberry juice, lemon juice, carbonated water, sugar and sherbet. Pour into tall chilled glasses and garnish with lemon or lime wedges. Serve immediately.
