"Dawnini" (Berry Bellini)

I don't drink alcoholic beverages and I don't think those that do should have all the fun. So in good fun I made a "drink" to celebrate the release of Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. I was going to make it Saturday night, but I did it tonight instead. Oh well...what's a few days!!!

6oz mixed frozen berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries)
zest of 1 medium orange
juice from 1/2 of zested orange
1/2 bottle (give or take) of your favorite sparkling apple juice.

Put frozen berries in blender. Add orange zest and juice. Blend for about 30 seconds. Add the juice and blend until frothy and the berries are well blended. Pour into glasses and then top off with more of the juice. Garnish with orange slices from the left over 1/2 of orange.

It's a bit sweet with just enough pucker to make it really good. You can also strain it if you don't like the seeds from the raspberries. Personal preference.
