Sparkling Cranberry Lemonade Mocktails

2018-12-27 | By: Lauren

2018 is coming to a close, and there's no better time to reflect on this past year and look forward to the future. This New Year's Eve, whether you're having a low-key night with loved ones or getting ready to hit the town, these Sparkling Cranberry Lemonade Mocktails are the perfect way to help you ring in 2019!

Makes 4 drinks

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1” piece ginger root, cut into large pieces 1 cup water
  • 1⁄4 cup honey
  • 2 cups lemonade
  • Sparkling water or club soda

Directions:

- In a small pot, bring water and ginger to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, stir in the honey and let simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cranberries and continue to simmer for about 10 minutes until thick. Once done, mash the cranberries and strain through a mesh strainer into a small bowl, pressing down the purée with a spoon so that only the juice fills the bowl. Set this cranberry syrup aside or in the refrigerator to cool completely. If you like a thicker or whole cranberry syrup, you can skip the straining step.

- Place 1-2 spoonfuls of the cranberry syrup at the bottom of each glass.

- Pour over 1⁄2 cup of lemonade in each glass. Top with sparkling water, either equal amount to  the lemonade or a little more works best, then stir the cranberry syrup around before serving.

- Serve cold with ice and garnish with lemon slices and/or frozen cranberries.
