Fire-Engine Red Cranberry-Raspberry Spritzer

Yield Makes 10 servings
Notes: 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 (see notes)
  • 1 lemon (about 5 oz.), rinsed and thinly sliced (ends discarded)
