3 End-of-Summer Low-Calorie Spritzer Recipes

Swap out sugary juices for low-calorie, fruit-filled options that taste great! Below are a few recipes for you to enjoy, and I love that they can also be made family friendly by excluding the alcohol.

Sparkling Sangria

There are not many things that beat spending the day sipping sangria! First, pour your choice of white wine, club soda, and Cascade Ice Pink Grapefruit to taste into a punch bowl or beverage dispenser. Slice some grapefruit and strawberries into large pieces, then add most of your slices into the pitcher. Be sure to set aside a few pieces for garnishing your individual glasses, if desired. Serve on a pretty, sunny day for the perfect way to say goodbye to summer!

Add in a cup of frozen raspberries and half of a fresh lemon sliced thinly for a little extra tang! Finally, pour the punch into your favorite martini glasses and enjoy.
