Pink Lemon Spritzer
Diabetic Living Magazine
“Healthy pomegranate juice gives its pink color to an elegant blended cocktail that's just right for summer parties.”
⅔ cup pomegranate juice or cranberry juice, chilled
6 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cups ice cubes
½ cup vodka
1 teaspoon snipped fresh mint or rosemary
1 (750 milliliter) bottle Prosecco or other sparkling wine, chilled
12 lemon slices or fresh raspberries and small fresh mint leaves
1In a liquid measuring cup, combine pomegranate juice, lemon juice, and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves.
2In a blender, combine juice mixture, the ice cubes, vodka, and snipped mint. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour ¼ cup of the blended mixture into each of 12 glasses. Top each with ¼ cup of the Prosecco. Garnish with lemon slices or raspberries and mint leaves.
Variation: Nonalcoholic Pink Lemon Spritzer: Prepare as directed, except omit vodka and sugar, increase pomegranate juice or cranberry juice to 1 cup, use sugar substitute equivalent to 1 tablespoon sugar, and substitute diet or regular ginger ale for the Prosecco.
