This cranberry cooler uses the herb stevia as its sweetener. Stevia is a South American herb that has been used for hundreds of years as a sweetener. Since the 70s, Japan has used stevia extensively for sweetening food products. It's available in many forms - the dried herb, a liquid extract, and a powder. You can find stevia at Whole Foods and most health food stores in the herbal supplements section. Stevia has zero carbs. This little recipe calls for 1 part pure cranberry juice to 3 parts soda water. An 8-oz glass of the cooler would have a total of 4 grams of carbs (for those of you that count these things). The taste? Refreshing and satisfying, but honestly, not quite as good as sugar. Probably very similar to if you had used splenda in place of sugar. That said, the carb count of 1 glass of the stevia sweetened cooler is 4 grams versus a typical glass of cranberry juice cocktail at 34 grams.
1/4 cup pure, unsweetened cranberry juice
3/4 cup club soda or sparkling mineral water
10-15 drops (about 1/8 teaspoon) of liquid stevia extract (amount
may depend on your specific brand of stevia)
Stir the stevia into the cranberry juice. Add the club
