Ocean Spray Cranberry Drink, and a Cranberry and Citrus Mocktail

Soft drinks have a reputation of being laden with sugar, which is the main reason why I rarely drink them. But when you investigate further, juices and fruit drinks are not much better. They too have a high sugar content, which makes them very unhealthy. When I was approached to try the Ocean Spray Low Sugar Cranberry Drink, I was curious. How could a fruit drink work if it wasn’t as sweet?

Turns out that Ocean Spray Cranberry Drink is sweetened by stevia, and contains only 10 calories per serve. Stevia is a natural sweetener and sugar substitute extracted from the leaves of the stevia plant. As a result the taste of a fruit drink is not compromised despite being a much healthier option.

Cocktails and mocktails are traditionally thought of as high calorie drinks, but by using Ocean Spray Cranberry Drink instead of a usual juice or soft drink base means that it contains a lot less sugar then expected.

I created a cranberry and citrus mocktail which proved to be highly refreshing on a summer’s day.

Cranberry and Citrus Mocktail


1 cup of Ocean Spray Cranberry Drink
5 or 6 mint leaves
Juice from half a lime
Juice from quarter of an orange
1 cup of carbonated water (optional)
5 or 6 ice cubes

Combine all the ingredients and serve!
