I usually work out at the smallest little 24 Hour Fitness that’s near my house. I basically know everyone and my kids love the child care there.
Well, last Friday my friends talked me into going to the nicer, bigger, more intimidating 24 Hour Fitness that’s right next to the beach. I’ve been avoiding that gym like the plague. I’ve heard all the horror stories of the girls that are perfectly made-up with itty bitty clothes on and the dudes that are all roided up and on the prowl. No thanks.
Plus it’s supposed to be a maze with like 3 levels of floors. Eek. I’m one to just stick to what I know and what I’m used to.
So, I went to a strength training class and just about died. It was the hardest class EVER.
It was a mix of cardio moves (think aerobic step) and strength moves that double up on body parts (like squats while you curl dumbbells) with NO break between anything! It was so super hard.
But you know what’s NOT hard? This drink recipe! If you’re having friends or family over for the holidays, you can put your kids or nieces/nephews in charge of making this drink. It’s THAT easy. It’s delicious, too!
It looks darling in jars or cups with the little cranberries floating around. It would compliment your holiday table nicely. 🙂 It’s also great to sip on while sitting all snug on your couch at night. Perfect amount of fizzy and cranberry! What’s your favorite holiday drink?
- 4 cups Sprite or 7-Up
- 2 cups cranberry cocktail juice
- 2 cups Martinelli's Sparkling Cider
- ice cubes & fresh cranberries to garnish
- Mix all ingredients into a medium-sized pitcher. Lightly stir. Pour into glasses to serve. Add ice cubes and fresh cranberries to garnish. Enjoy!

I love the ingredients you used in this drink. My family usually makes a Christmas Punch with orange juice, cranberry juice, lemon juice, etc. I may have to try this one this year 🙂
This does look so festive! Perfect for Christmas Eve!

Ugh. I stopped going to the gym long ago….and got a treadmill in the basement instead. Best decision ever! This spritzer looks like a good decision, too!! I will have to make it over the holidays 🙂
