With Cranberry being our flavor of the week, what better way to celebrate this delicious berry than by making a yummy cocktail!?

First lets start off with fresh cranberry juice.

Simply add 8 cups of cranberries and 8 cups water to a large saucepan – Bring to a boil while stirring occasionally.After, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, continuing to stir occasionally. All the berries should have popped open and should be a little mushy at by this point. After, place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the berries into it. Discard the berries (or save for baking, or anything else.) Pour honey into the bowl if you’d like to sweeten your juice (about a cup). Stir until the honey is dissolved completely!

Allow the juice to cool about an hour so it’s not too hot to handle. Pour the reserved juice into a ½ gallon container (preferably glass) and store in the refrigerator.

Once you’re juice is nice and cold, we came across the perfect cocktail to try with your freshly made juice.

Gimme Some Oven is a super cute blog with tons of yummy recipes, and in our great search, we thought that a cranberry margarita would be absolutely perfect!

Sweet and tart cranberry juice makes for extra festive margaritas!

Cheers & Enjoy!
