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.
