    This was a yummy recipe. Great holiday party beverage. A tad too sweet, however.

    This recipie inspired me--I went a slightly different route and used cranberry pomegranate juice and diet gingerale which gives a sweeter taste than club soda--then floated frozen orange slices and a bag of fresh cranberries--everyone loved it!! It was the same color as the picture above and the oranges kept it cold, I also refrigerated the juice and soda before using them.
