Lime, Cranberry & Raspberry Refresher

Looking for a great tasting, bubbly beverage everyone can enjoy during the upcoming holidays?  How about a Lime, Cranberry & Raspberry Refresher? This non-alcoholic beverage also contains apple juice… the recipe comes from one of my Cooking Light cookbooks… and I think you will really enjoy it!Lime, Cranberry & Raspberry Refresher / The Grateful Girl Cooks!
The recipe is absolutely simple to prepare (ready in 3 minutes!), and makes eight 1 cup servings.  I found the recipe in a cookbook I own called “Cooking Light – Fresh Food Superfast”, changed the recipe up just a bit, and REALLY enjoyed it!  The cookbook got it right – a pitcher of this certainly IS superfast to prepare!

If you want to make a festive beverage that everyone can enjoy (including the kids), consider making this refreshing drink during the holidays.  You can add fresh or frozen raspberries and/or frozen cranberries to each drink, and garnish each glass with a lime wedge to make it even more festive looking!

Sure hope you enjoy this colorful, bubbly and flavorful drink! We sure did.
