How Do You Make Cranberry Simple Syrup?

You add sugar, fresh cranberries, Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail and water to a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil over low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

If you like mint, I recommend adding 8-10 leaves to the mixture and boil. Discard the mint and the cranberries AFTER the mixture has cooled.

How Do You Make Cranberry Mocktail Without Sugar?

Use Cranberry Juice, add it to a pitcher with 3 fresh squeezed lemons, add sugar-free pomegranate juice, and add stevia or honey. Stir, taste and make it as sweet as you want. Add a few lemon slices to the pitcher, serve over ice.

Now I am sharing with you this mouth-watering Cranberry Mocktail that you can easily turn into a cocktail. It can be served during the appetizer time and even at the table. Everyone will reach out for one and even ask for more, so make a few pitchers! This stuff is good!
