TIP OF THE DAY: Sparkling Cranberry Juice

Our favorite juice company, R.W. Knudsen Family, makes it easy to serve special sparkling juices to guests of all ages. We especially love their sparkling cranberry juice for holiday entertaining.

R.W. Knudsen non-alcoholic “celebratory beverages” are packaged in 750 ml Champagne-style bottles (25.4 fl. oz.), perfect for special occasions. They make the drink even more special when poured from the bottle.

Unlike soda pop, an eight-ounce serving of Sparkling Cranberry contains enough real fruit juice to be the USDA equivalent of one serving of fruit. Squeeze in some fresh lime juice for a delightful accent—as well as a red-and-green theme.

In addition to Sparkling Cranberry, the celebratory juices, available year-round, include Sparkling Blueberry, Sparkling Cherry, Sparkling Crisp Apple Cider, Sparkling Kosher Grape, Sparkling Organic Apple, Sparkling Organic Pear and Sparkling Strawberry.

We found Sparkling Cranberry at a nearby Shop-Rite supermarket for $3.49 a bottle, and scooped up a case to bring to parties over the next few weeks.

You can add gin, tequila or vodka to a glass of sparkling juice. It still counts as a serving of fruit—but don’t try to count the vodka as a serving of whole grain!
