Fire Engine Red Cranberry-Raspberry Spritzer

If you prefer a spritzer on the sweet side, use lemon-lime soda; add mineral water or soda just before serving.

For an adult version, add 3 to 4 tablespoons vodka - or if you're adventurous, Campari - to each glass.


  • 5 cups refrigerated or canned cranberry-raspberry juice blend
  • 2/3 cup grenadine
  • 5 cups chilled lemon-flavor mineral water or lemon-lime soda
  • 1 lemon (about 5 ounces), rinsed and thinly sliced (ends discarded)


  1. In a 3- to 3 1/2-quart glass pitcher, mix juice blend and grenadine.
  2. Pour in mineral water and add lemon slices.
  3. Pour into tall, ice-filled glasses (at least 12 ounces).
