Cran-Raspberry Fizz


I made this Cran-Raspberry Fizz drink for my sister-in-law's baby shower this weekend.  It was a hit!  I first got this recipe from The Pampered Chef (click herefor original recipe) after I had hosted a Pampered Chef party last month.  I actually doubled the original recipe to serve at the baby shower.  I love the flavors of this drink, the hint of lime with the cranberry and raspberry and also the ginger ale gives the wonderful fizz.  This drink was perfect for the baby shower and is great for any party.  If you need a non-alcoholic drink for your  next party, try this Cran-Raspberry Fizz!  Thank you to my cousin, Cathy from Petite Therapy for being the photographer and decorating!  The baby shower theme was "It's a Girl" combined with the Year of the Dragon, which is considered very lucky in our Chinese culture.  A little dragon will be on her way soon and I can't wait to meet my niece!  I'll probably be writing more about the baby shower this week so keep posted.
