Dietitian's tip: Cranberry juice may help fight urinary tract infections because it contains compounds that help stop certain bacteria from attaching to the walls of the bladder and urinary tract.
1 quart reduced-calorie cranberry juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 quart carbonated water
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup raspberry sherbet
10 lemon or lime wedges
Refrigerate the cranberry juice, lemon juice and carbonated water until cold.
In a large pitcher, mix together the cranberry juice, lemon juice, carbonated water, sugar and sherbet. Pour into tall chilled glasses and garnish with a lemon or lime wedge. Serve immediately.
