Cranberry Limeade

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 8
Pack and tote beverages in individual spillproof containers that guests can drink from directly. If prepared limeade is not available, use frozen limeade concentrate mixed as directed on the package.


  • 2 quarts prepared limeade
  • 2 cups cranberry juice
  • 2 limes, thinly sliced
  • Ice cubes for serving


In a large bowl, combine the limeade, cranberry juice and lime slices and stir until blended. Ladle the mixture into eight 1 1/2-cup Mason jars with screw caps. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

To serve, place a few ice cubes and a straw in each jar and pass to each guest. Serves 8.

Serving Tip: If you do not have Mason or jelly jars on hand, transfer the drink to a thermos and refrigerate until ready to transport. Serve over ice in tall glasses.
