Recipe: Cranberry spritzer

Recipe: Cranberry spritzer

Cranberry juice is the base for this refreshing spritzer.

Cranberry juice may help fight urinary tract infections because it contains compounds that help stop certain bacteria from attaching to the walls of the bladder and urinary tract.


Directions

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 a lemon or lime wedge. Serve immediately.


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