Party Recipes: Berry Grape Refreshers


A festive party drink with less sugar

BerryGrape RefreshersDo you really want to load excited little party-goers up with sugar-filled party drinks like Kool-Aide or punch?

Or how about re-decorating your sofa or rugs with a few Red Dye #2 SPLATS?

We have a better idea, serve a fresh sparkling berry lemonade that you kids can help to prepare. There is still some sugar and berries stain a bit, but if you use a natural Lemonade diluted with seltzer it’s much better. This is so easy it is barely a recipe!

You’ll Need:

  • Fresh or frozen raspberries
  • Green grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Natural lemonade
  • Seltzer water
  • Ice cube tray
  • Lemon sorbet (optional)
  • Clear cups or glasses
  • Straws
  • Party picks


  1. If you are using fresh berries, wash them and spread them on a parchment covered ccokie sheet in the freezer.
  2. Freeze the grapes in a bowl or Ziploc bag in the freezer.
  3. Make drink picks for each guest by “skewering” fruit on a cocktail pick or kid-safe kabob
    place them on a tray to freeze as well.
  4. Add lemonade to the ice cube trays and freeze.
  5. When its time to serve drop a few ice cubes along with frozen berries and grapes in each glass.
  6. Add lemonade into the cups and top with seltzer.
  7. Garnish with the frozen fruit pick.

Make lemonade ice cubes for extra flavor!
