Cranberry Mocktail , with its gorgeous fall colors and flavors is the perfect drink this time of the year. A delicious blend of cranberry simple syrup, cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, fresh pomegranates, lemon and mint will make your taste buds very happy! Add a splash of vodka or rum if you prefer to turn this cray good mocktail into a delicious cocktail. The best part of this Cranberry Mocktail is that it’s very easy to make, you can prepare the cranberry simple syrup days in advance and just store it in your fridge, mix everything in a large pitcher when ready to serve and you are done!

How Do You Make Cranberry Simple Syrup?

You add sugar, Ocean Spray® 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?

You can skip making the simple syrup, use Ocean Spray® Diet 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.
