The holidays will be here before you know it. Sprite is gearing up for the holidays with the introduction of a new flavor, Sprite Cranberry. The new Sprite Cranberry and Sprite Cranberry Zero™ will be available for a limited time through the holidays. Both products take the refreshing taste of traditional Sprite and combine it with a splash of sweet and tart cranberry notes. I used Sprite Cranberry in an old family favorite punch recipe. My Aunt Barb made this amazing Spiced Cranberry Punch Cocktail that everyone loved. Here is how I put my own twist on it!
Spiced Cranberry Punch Cocktail
1/4 cup of red hot cinnamon candies
3 (12-oz.) cans of Sprite Cranberry
1 (64-oz.) bottle of cranberry juice cocktail
1 (12-oz.) can frozen limeaid
1 (12-oz.) can frozen orange juice
Heat the cinnamon candies in the water; stir until melted. Chill.
Combine candy liquid, Sprite Cranberry, cranberry juice and concentrates in a punch bowl. Stir until dissolved. Add ice and lime slices.
It turned out awesome! I am sure my Aunt Barb is smiling down on me and is pleased with my special twist to our classic holiday drink recipe. That cool, crisp, sparkling, berry flavor gives it such a refreshing twist. Definitely a hit.
Possible variations would include using Sprite Cranberry Zero™ instead of Sprite Cranberry, or adding your favorite liquor to really spice things up! You can truly make things “berry” and bright this holiday season with the all new refreshing taste of Sprite Cranberry and Sprite Cranberry Zero™. They are both clear and refreshing, just like the original, with just a hint of cranberry flavor. It is so delicious on its own too!
I recommend trying Sprite Cranberry and Sprite Cranberry Zero™ either as stand-alone beverages, or mixed in with your favorite specialty holiday-themed recipes, like I did. Whatever you choose, enjoy!
