Cranberry-Lime Spritzer

Cranberry-Lime Spritzer

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

To remove the lime zest (the thin, colored portion of the peel), use a vegetable peeler to take it off in strips. Try to get just the zest portion, because that’s where all of the flavor is.


2 bags (12 ounces each) fresh or frozen cranberries

4 cups apple juice

3 tablespoons honey

Zest of 1 lime

⅔ cup fresh lime juice (about 5 limes)


1. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, apple juice, honey, and lime zest. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the berries have all popped, about 15 minutes.

2. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, pushing on the berries to extract as much liquid as possible.
