1-1/2 pounds (2 bags) fresh or frozen cranberries (no need to thaw)
4 cups apple juice
3 tablespoons honey
Zest of one lime
2/3 cup fresh lime juice
10 cups chilled seltzer(Dont panic it artificially carbonated water)
In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, apple juice, honey, and lime zest. Bring to a boi. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the berries have all popped, about 15 minutes.
Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, pushing on the berries to extract as much liquid as possible.
Stir in the lime juice. Let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until chilled.
For each serving, spoon 1/4 cup of cranberry-lime juice into a tall glasss and add 1/2 cup seltzer. Add ice if desired.
Notes:-Make the cranberry-lime juice a day ahead, chill it, and serve at a big bash.
