Tips on Cranberry Orange Mocktails
Yes! Cranberry and orange are a perfect pair! Orange zest is often added to cranberry sauce to enhance the flavor of the cranberries and orange juice provides a delicious, natural sweetness to offset the tartness of cranberries.
There is zero alcohol in any of my mocktails, including this one, making it the perfect holiday sip for anyone and everyone!
No. For this recipe, you need fresh or frozen cranberries to make the syrup, which is a key ingredient.
Yes! If you don’t have ginger beer on hand or simply prefer a lighter ginger flavor, feel free to swap out the ginger beer in the recipe for ginger ale.
I love floating a few fresh or frozen cranberries on top of this drink for an easy garnish. Orange slices, a twist of orange peel or even fresh pomegranate seeds would all look great garnishing this mocktail. To give it a Christmas flair, add a sprig of rosemary.
