Sparkling Cranberry-Lime Seltzer

Created by: Laura Franklin, Food Fun Family

There is something about a festive punch or a fancy glass filled with a colorful, fruity drink at a Thanksgiving get-together that sets the tone for the entire gathering. This easy-to-prepare non-alcoholic sparkling drink is a fun new way to feature cranberries at the holiday table, and one that everybody - young and old - can enjoy.

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup chopped cranberries
  • 2 fresh limes, sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. cream of coconut
  • 1 liter sparkling water
  1. Add sugar and water to a small saucepan; cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to thicken slightly.
  2. Remove pan from heat and stir in chopped cranberries and cream of coconut. Allow to cool.
  3. Pour cranberry sugar mixture into a large pitcher. Add sliced limes. Pour chilled sparkling water over all; stir and serve over ice.
