Ingredients
  1. 1 zest of lime
  2. 2 bags (12 oz.) Fresh or frozen cranberries
  3. 2/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 5 limes)
  4. 3 T. honey
  5. 4 cups apple juice
  6. 1 bottle of chilled seltzer water
Instructions
  1. Zest a lime: 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. Juice 5 limes.
  3. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, apple juice, honey, and lime zest. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the berries have all popped, about 15 minutes.
  5. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, pushing on the berries to extract as much liquid as possible.
  6. Let cool to room temperature, then transfer the cranberry-lime juice to a jar or juice container with a tight-fitting lid.
  7. Stir in the lime juice and shake to combine.
  8. Store in the refrigerator.
  9. Makes five cups juice.
  10. For one spritzer: Spoon ¼ cup of cranberry-lime juice into a tall glass and add ½ cup chilled seltzer.
  11. Add ice if desired. Add flavoring to mix and shake well.
