I love a sweet fizzy drink, especially at Christmas and there’s nothing more festive than cranberries. And I love the combination of cranberries and raspberries.
The sugared cranberries are very easy to make and they’re the perfect combination of sweet and tart. They’re a wonderful garnish for this delicious drink.
Keep these simple ingredients on hand during the festive season and enjoy this easy cocktail all holiday season long.
- 1/3 cranberry raspberry juice or cocktail
- 1/3 ginger ale
- 1 oz. vodka
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cranberries
- plus more sugar
- To make the sugared cranberries, combine 1/4 cup of sugar with a 1/4 cup of water in a small saucepan. Heat and stir until sugar is fully disolved, and water has come to a simmer.
- Add the fresh cranberries and stir. Let the cranberries sit in the sugar water for an hour and up to 8 hours.
- Drain cranberries, and let sit around 5 minutes, then roll the sticky cranberries in sugar to coat them completely. Leave them spread out on a plate to dry slightly.
- To make the drink, fill a glass 1/3 full with cranberry raspberry juice or cocktail. Next, fill the glass another 1/3 with ginger ale. Lastly add 1 oz of vodka and ice to fill the glass.
