“Cranberry juice with a lime — hold the vodka!” — vivivoom

“Sparkling white grape juice with fruit puree looks and tastes pretty much like a Bellini or a Kir Royale.” — TamaraS

“I absolutely LOVE pomegranate juice and Reed’s Extra Ginger Ginger Ale. It’s so sparkly and nummy! In a wine or champagne flute, it’s pretty and almost festive enough for the real thing!” — nkintzel

“I was at a party that had a punch with sherbet in it, and they mixed sparkling grape juice with Sprite too. Both were really good!” — Dressage99
