Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups water separated
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup frozen cranberries

Instructions

  • Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a saucepan and stir over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil and boil until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside until the mixture cools.
  • Squeeze 1 cup of lemon juice from fresh lemons.
  • In a pitcher, stir the simple syrup, lemon juice, and the remaining 1 1/2 cups of water until combined. Place in refrigerator until chilled, about 1-2 hours. Serve in glasses and top with frozen cranberries.

Notes

The frozen cranberries are not required but they make a nice addition to this drink recipe. I add them as a garnish and to keep the drink chilled without adding ice so your drink won’t get watered down.
