    For a lighter version, I used diet Cranberry Juice with Trop 50 Orange Pineapple juice, a squeeze of lime juice along with the orange and lime zest. The under 21 gang at my house enjoyed a healthy juice alternative.

    Really nice with vodka but next time I will only add sugar if I am using unsweetened cranberry juice. I used Ocean Spray Cranberry and with added sugar it was way too sweet. But the lime and orange zest was delicious!
