When the holidays roll around, I know that many of us immediately think of baking. Cookies, pies, breads, and other baked goodies are something I look forward to all year, and the holidays are always the perfect excuse to eat as many of them as you want, right? 😉 But you know what I love making just as much? Fun and festive drinks!

With Christmas just a few days away and New Year’s Eve following shortly after, I wanted to create a drink that 1) used ingredients that matched the season, and 2) would be pretty, sparkly, and refreshing. I decided that a Cranberry Limeade Spritzer would be the perfect choice! Between the pretty cranberries and the bubbly 7UP, this would be a lovely signature drink at any holiday party.

To make your own Cranberry Limeade Spritzer:

  • Gather up your three easy ingredients, including a 2 liter of 7UP, cranberry juice, and some fresh limes.

 

  • Start by adding some ice to a glass and pouring in 2 oz. of cranberry juice.
