Pillsbury recently sent me this recipe for a wonderful holiday drink called Noel Spritzer. It can be made with or without spirits, and frankly I think the non-spirit version would be great for a family party. This can be made quite frugally, too!
2 cups chilled dry white wine, nonalcoholic wine or apple juice (apple juice .50)
1 cup chilled cranberry-apple juice drink (also .50 last week)
1 cup chilled sparkling water (always a bargain, and you can get it in a quart bottle)
Apple slices, if desired (.79/# last week)
Mix the liquids, pour over ice, garnish w/very thin apple slices. For about $1.50 total, you get 6 refreshing servings of a festive drink!
