Cranberry Lemonade Spritzer with Holiday Ice Cubes

Spritzers are one of my favorite things to do with our lemonades. Just mix about half club soda and half Cranberry Lemonade. Some people like more, some people like less. Play with the ratio and make it your own.

And, the nice thing about spritzers is that they’re really easy to jazz up for holidays and special occasions. For this one, we garnished with a fresh sprig of rosemary, sliced lemons, and fresh cranberries. We also had a few of our holiday ice cubes left over from last time (recipe below), and they make for a beautiful presentation.

This recipe serves about 3 glasses with half club soda, half juice. Depending on the size of your glass and the ratio you like best.
