Being Southern, when company drops in, you find yourself saying, "Can I get you something to drink?" or "Would you like a snack?" Entertaining is just second nature. I came up with this one day when some neighbors dropped by and I didn't have anything "special" made up, but had a bottle of juice in the frige. We were very pleasantly surprised how well this turned out.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 23 cups cranberry-raspberry juice (I use the Splenda sweetened light version)
  • 1 cup diet lemon-lime soda
  • Cool Whip
  • 4 cherries


  1. Combine first 3 ingredients.
  2. Add ice if desired.
  3. Top each glass with whipped cream and cherry.

I really enjoyed this combination because it was the perfect balance of tart and sweet. Very refreshing! I served it to the girls at my daughter's sleepover and they were thrilled with their "fancy drinks". They had no clue as to how easy they were to make!

this was very refreshing! and not too sweet, I liked it. but I have never used cool whip before and so didn't quite know what to do with it so I just put a spoonful on top, then I forgot to put cherries on top. It probably would have been better if I had mixed the cool whip with the cranraspberry juice, but didn't think of it at the time. I did enjoy it as a thirst quencher on a hot day! Forgot to say I used diet Ginger Ale, it worked fine.

This was good, but I was a bit confused as to how much cool whip should be added, and then I had a tough time getting the cool whip to blend with the juice and the soda. However, it is a "fun" drink especially for kids. Made for July - Everyone is Making the Same Thing event.
