PPQ: Baby Shower and Cran-Orange Sparklers

This week the Project Pastry Queen members are having a virtual  baby shower for Emily and BabyRuf! The shower is being hosted by Emily of A Gilt Nutmeg, and you can head over to her site to see everyone’s contributions!

I decided to make a festive drink for the party. I went with cran-raspberry and orange flavors, but you could use this method with any flavor combination you prefer. This drink is sparkling and fruity without being too sweet, and it is non-alcoholic since this is a baby shower.

Congratulations to Emily and her family, and blessings to BabyRuf!

Cran-Orange Sparklers (my original recipe)

  • 1 (12 fl. oz.) can cranberry-raspberry cocktail/juice concentrate
  • 12 fl. oz. orange juice
  • 12 fl. oz. water
  • 1 orange
  • Sparkling water, ginger ale, or club soda (I used Orange Citrus Seltzer Water)

Slice the orange. In a pitcher, combine the concentrate, orange juice, water and orange slices, then chill in the refrigerator. If desired, save a couple orange slices to garnish glasses.

To serve, rub an orange slice on rims of glasses, dip in sugar, and add ice. Fill glass 2/3 full with juice and top off with sparkling water. Stir gently and enjoy!
