Healthy Recipe, Cranberry Spritzer

In the annual autumn rush to embrace all things pumpkin, don’t forget the seasonal pleasures of cranberry. This refreshing drink from The Mayo Clinic has low sodium and virtually no fat, protein, cholesterol or fiber. And if you substitute low-calorie sweetener for sugar, you’re lowering the sugar even more. Serves 10


  • 1 quart reduced-calorie cranberry juice

  • 1 quart seltzer water

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 cup raspberry sherbet

  • 10 lemon or lime wedges
