Sparkling Cranberry Shrub

Shrubs served in colonial days were fruit-based drinks liberally spiked with brandy or rum. Today cooks usually leave the spirits out so they can enjoy the refreshing taste of the fruit.


  • 4 cups (2 pints) raspberry sherbert, softened
  • 3 cups cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 cups chilled ginger ale (24 ounces)

    How to make it 

  • 1

    Spoon half of the sherbert into a blender. Pour in half of the cranberry juice and half of the lemon juice. Process until smooth. Pour into 6 glasses. Repeat with remaining sherbert, remaining cranberry juice and remaining lemon juice.

  • 2

    Carefully pour some of the ginger ale down the side of each glass. Stir to muddle slightly. Serves: 12 (6-ounce servings).
