Low GI Recipe - Sparking Triple-Berry Punch

So a drink this time, just for something different.  I haven't tried it yet, but it is on my menu for Christmas Day.

From Australian Better Homes and Gardens, Diabetic Living Magazine, November/Dec 2012

Now the recipe doesn't have any nutritional or GI info, but I am hoping, given it is in their magazine it is at least no more than medium GI.

Sparkling Triple-Berry Punch, Serves 6

1.5L light cranberry juice, chilled

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1.25L diet dry ginger ale, chilled

750ml Yellowglen Jewel Pink, chilled

250gm strawberries, hulled, chopped

120g (1 cup) frozen raspberries

1/4 cup small mint leaves

Ice cubes, to serve

Extra mint, to serve

1. Put juices, ginger ale, wine, berries, mint and ice in a large jug. Stir well. Top with extra mint to serve.

  1. Sounds quite a delight but do you know what Yellowglen Jewel Pink is? It is a sparkling wine that has 30% less calories and 40% less alcohol than "Pink". Petal pink in colour and brimming with bubbles, it tastes of fresh strawberries and citrus. I'd be inclined to try and find out some nutritional values before drinking too much of what sounds to me like a quite delightful and moreish drink. A special for Christmas? Just the ticket I would think.
