Raspberry Citrus Fizz Drink For The Holidays

This is the year that I'm actually going to be organized for the holidays!  Well, let's at least hope that I'm going to be.  I already have some activities planned for when my kids have fall break and some parties in the works with friends and family. 
It's those parties that I'm trying to focus on because I want every little detail to shine.  From the invitation down to the drinks!  I figure if I start thinking now about what my guest will want, I can actually enjoy myself for those holiday parties!  That's why I'm excited when this Raspberry Citrus Fizz Drink came together with ease!  I used a few citrus juices and DASANI® Sparkling to create it and of course I had to test it out first!

I've learned over the years that if I can make any food or drink ahead of time, I should.  It gives you more time to put the finishing touches on and more time to actually get dressed!

This Raspberry Citrus Fizz Drink has little prep time and a few hours in the freezer.  The best part is the DASANI® Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade totally makes this spectacular.  If you've never had it before, it's sparkling water that comes in some great fresh flavor choices.  It comes in an 8 pack of the slim cans. 
To make the slush part of the drink you'll juice some oranges and lemons and add a bit of water and sugar.  (See the recipe below).  Pour it into a small baking pan and freeze it.  Take it out ever 45 minute or so and stir it with a fork.  It will start to freeze and crystallize.  This is what it should like about half way through the freezing process. 
Once the whole thing is frozen, it will look like this!  Just keep fluffing and scraping with a fork to break up any large bits. 
 Scoop the frozen juice into a small glass and fill almost to the top.

 Then pop open a cold can of the DASANI® Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade and pour over the top.

Fill to the top and garnish with a rosemary sprig!  This seriously is an amazing holiday drink.  It smells and tastes so festive!  The DASANI® Sparkling takes the whole thing over the top and your guests are going to love it!

4 Cans DASANI® Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade
3 Cups Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 Cup water
1/2 Cup Sugar
Rosemary Sprigs

Directions
1.  In a small baking pan mix together orange juice, lemon juice, water and sugar.  Mix until sugar is dissolved
2.  Place in the freezer and freeze for 1 hour.
3.  Take out the pan and stir it together with a fork, scraping down the sides. 
4.  Repeat this process for 3 more hours.  The mixture will start to freeze so use the fork to break up any large bits. 
5.  Once it is fully frozen, scoop into a small glass to the top. 
6.  Pour a DASANI® Sparkling Raspberry Lemonade over the top until the glass is almost full.
7.  Garnish with a rosemary sprig and serve.


I picked up my 12 oz. cans of DASANI® Sparkling at Target where you can find it in the water isle!  You can also find the new 20 oz DASANI® Sparkling cans in the Target check out lanes.  That way you can try all their other flavors if you didn't want to commit to a full 8 count box.  Love it! 
What other flavors have you tried from DASANI® Sparkling?  I'm curious of what your favorite is!
