Cranberry Lime Sparkler + Le Creuset Giveaway!

For those of you who have been reading this blog for a while now will know that I don’t usually post drink recipes–and when I do, they’re few and far in between. Well, since getting pregnant and living off of carbonated water to settle my stomach for the first 17 weeks, I’ve come to learn how to ‘jazz it up’. This is a recipe that I’m sure a lot of you do this time of the year with Cranberry juice, fresh lime juice and carbonated water–like perrier or pellagrino. It’s served over ice and totally hits the spot for me when I need something cold to guzzle.

To make it look pretty for the Holidays, I added a sugared rim and floated a few fresh cranberries and slices of lime into the drinks. My little one LOVED the sugar part and licked her rim clean! And then when I wasn’t looking, she licked the rest of the glass rims….rascal! This germaphobe mom was not impressed. {Except that’s something I would have done had she not been there…like mother like daugher–LOL!}

 This recipe can be adapted to your taste however you like! Feel free to use Sprite in place of perrier if you want it a bit sweeter. OR, use less lime juice. Or go heavy on the cranberry. To eachs’ own!   No step by step photos today because this recipe is super simple…and its more about the presentation than anything. AND, because I’ve teamed up with Le Creuset to offer you guys some awesome Servingware! Le Creuset is known for their french ovens and a lot of their cookware, but did you know they have all sorts of other gorgeous utensils, servingwear and diningware? And the best part is it’s all gorgeous stuff! You can see that this photo has a red cake plate hanging around in the background. It’s by Le Creuset and perfect for the holidays! All their servingware colors are festive, fun and bring a little brightness to your kitchen.

Collage Included in this prize pack is:
-1 small, 1 medium and 1 large Multi Bowl in any colors available
-1 Stoneware Cake Stand in any colors available
-1 small serving platter in any colors available

You are not going to want to share these or bring these to any events because they are so pretty to look at! {My husband thinks I’m weird because I want a cabinet in our new house just for pretty dishes I can oogle…please tell me I’m not the only one…}

Why I love Le Creuset:
-All their products are too legit to quit! I love the heavy duty quality/durability that these products are made for. From their French Ovens to this servingware, it’s all amazing!
-I love the variety of colors you can get with these. This red cake stand was my favorite….its especially festive for the holidays!
-The products are decently priced. Yes you could find cheaper, but I think nothing would last nearly as long!

Le Creuset wants you to try out some of their servingware so you can see for yourself how gorgeous and well crafted it is! I’m telling you right now, this stuff is made for every kitchen out there.

    Beautiful pics. I love drinks like these that are “fancy” but don’t have alcohol because I can give them to my kids on a special occasion and they love it! And I can always add booze if I need it! ha ha ha. Also perfect for preggos like you right now so you don’t feel left out with the holidays and all the specialty cocktails that seem to be around a lot more this time of year!
