Cranberry Ginger Jazz


Around 2pm everyday I have an ice-filled Diet Coke as a pick-me-up. One of my resolutions is to cut down on soda and add low calorie fruit and vegetable juices into my daily routine as a substitute.

In this process I have tried a few brands from the store but found nothing has really knocked my socks off. I decided to take baby steps and start with the Cranberry Ginger Jazz from Health Magazine. Now, I realize that diet ginger ale is a soda but it is a different color than Diet Coke and I get the added health benefits of Cranberry Juice and folic acid from Orange Juice.

Plus it is delicious, and if I am having an especially trying day, I can easily turn it into a before dinner cocktail with a splash of vodka. Even though I didn’t cut out soda all together, I added a drink with more versatility, health benefits and beautiful color. Maybe I should rename it the Denial.

I adore ginger ale and can rationalize it 100 ways. I buy all-natural but with sugar ginger ale and tell myself that ginger has all sorts of medicinal purposes, it settles your stomach, it just plain tastes good too.

There is a local restaurant that makes homemade ginger ale that's divine! They add ginger syrup, that they make, to Sierra Mist and top it off with limes.

Maybe we'll head there for dinner!
