Fizzy Lifting Drink

I volunteered to do some baking for my cousin's upcoming bridal shower, which involves testing the recipes first. Since it was too hot to cook this weekend, I decided to try out the cold beverage first. Fizzy Lemonade-Cranberry Punch is the name. Her request was to use cran-raspberry juice instead of straight-up cranberry juice. It turned out really tasty and really pretty. Using a funnel helped get everything into the container more easily with less spills. We'll definitely be serving it at the bridal shower.

Fizzy Lemonade-Cranberry Punch
1qt. cranberry-juice cocktail
1 container (6oz.) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
1 liter seltzer or club soda, chilled
1 small orange, cut into 1/4"-thick slices, then each slice cut in half
Ice cubes, optional

In large pitcher, stir together cranberry-juice cocktail and undiluted lemonade concentrate until blended. Then, stir in seltzer, and ice cubes if desired. Garnish with orange pieces. Serve immediately. Makes about 12 servings.


  1. Sounds good... maybe you can bring some to Friday's Gamenight?

  2. I can't, cuz the other half is frozen for the shower. I got exactly twice as much as the recipe calls for so I could do that. Sorry...
