I used fresh lime juice and "diet" cranberry juice. This is delicious. I tripled it only because I wanted a bigger drink. My husband keeps sneaking sips.

I'm w/Sarah Jo in that this makes a small "drink". It barely filled a highball glass 3/4's of the way full, w/additional cranberry juice. No biggie, just be prepared to adjust (or feel like your doing a cosmo shot) per your own personal preference. No Triple Sec, so I subbed a little lemon juice instead. I also used a sparkling cranberry juice as I prefer bubbles in my drinks. Cheers!

A tad stronger than I would have liked, but easily rectified by additional cranberry juice.
