I would say 0 servings. I was in the doctors office with my mother. And he said she needed to lose the fruit juice. Even the 100% fruit juice and eat fruit instead.

I agree, this does not count as fruit.

If these are indeed the ingredients I would count it as zero. (I might even count it as -1 lol.) This is basically water with high fructose corn syrup in it.

Generally, one cup of 100% juice counts as a serving of fruit. You may want to make sure any beverage containing cranberry juice is 100% juice. Often times, cranberry beverages are "cocktail" drinks, which are loaded with added sugar. And, for the record, eating whole fruit is better than drinking juice.
