Want to have a berry merry holiday? Try this Sparkling Berry Spritzer. It’s a festive cocktail (or mocktail if you use sparkling cider) that not only tastes delicious but serves up some serious health benefits thanks to the antioxidant-rich cranberries and raspberries in the recipe.
It also contains our Mixed Berry Re-Lyte, so you get a hydrating dose of electrolytes along with those healthy berries. We think it’s the tastiest way to stay holly, jolly, and harmoniously hydrated this holiday season. But don’t take our word for it. Try it for yourself!
Here are the ingredients you'll need: (makes 4-6 servings)
- 750 ml dray champagne (I used a bruit) or sparkling cider
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
- 1/2 cup rasperries
- 1 1/2 scoop mixed berry Re-Lyte
- 1 lime, sliced
- Club soda
Pour the first 4 ingredients in a pitcher and chill for 4-6 hours. Fill 4-6 stemmed glasses 2/3 full with mixture. Add club soda to fill and garnish with a lime wedge. Serve with or without ice.
For another twist, substitute ginger beer for the champagne or cider to add a zesty kick.
