Cranberry Spritzer.fixed.2

For this years Thanksgiving Dinner, I wanted to have a special drink. These Cranberry Spritzers were very festive, easy and flavorful.

Fill your glass half full with cranberry juice and add lemon-lime soda. I bought the juice at Aldi’s and used Walmart brand of soda, also making them a frugal drink.

For garnish I added a sliced lime. You could also add some cranberries on a toothpick or skewer.

I saw on Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade, she used a zester to peel a lime and make a curling garnish. I will have to admit either, I had the wrong tool, it was alot harder than she made it look or I simply couldn’t do it. :) But if you are handy with a zester, give it a try.

Update: I’m updating this post to include my Grandmothers Cranberry Bread recipe and joining in the fun at Flavor of the Month ~ Traditions at Bake at 350, because it wouldn’t be the Holidays at our home without Cranberry Bread.

    Looks so pretty and festive! I think it’s so fun to serve up a sparkly juice drink. Makes it seem so celebratory!

    I do my lime twists just with a small paring knife- that’s how we did it back in the day when I was tending bar. I just carefully trim the peel off a slice and twist it. You might try that method sometime.

    Thanks for sharing and linking up!
