TIP OF THE DAY: Sparkling Juice

Love fruit juice but not the calories?

You can juice up for one-fourth the calories and carbs by turning your juice drink into a sparkling juice “spritzer”:

Just fill the glass 1/4 full with fruit juice and top off with club soda or seltzer. You also can:

  • Mix the recipe by using 1/2 juice and 1/2 club soda if you want more juice flavor.
  • Use flavored club soda to add more flavor to the drink.
  • Add a garnish of fresh fruit—lemon or lime is fine for a squeeze of citrus flavor; apple, peach or other favorite fruit provides a mini snack. A sprig of mint is another option.

 

“Spritzer,” by the way, comes from the German “spritzen,” to squirt or spray. Americans adapted the word around 1915-1920 to refer to adding sparkling water to give carbonation to a beverage. A wine spritzer adds club soda to wine.

Fizzy Lizzy began with founder Liz Morrill’s love for spritzers. At the time, there were no fizzy juices on the market, so she started a line. If you don’t want to make your own juice spritzer, try Fizzy Lizzy, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.
